Shashi is going to host on Saturday, I'm still attending, but am covering my bases in case I'm running late as I'm coming straight from another engagement. I hope to make it by 8:00-8:15 pm for dinner. He will show up by 7:30 pm to greet the folks who rsvp's for dinner. We should be on the first floor large front table on the left after you pass the bar and go up the half flight of stairs. See you soon! -Toby
A bunch of you have been asking me when the next trip to Madam's will be. Here it is, I haven't seen this blues band before (Biscuit Miller and The Mix), but this venue only books good bands from my experience, and cover charge is always $5. They have a new website, where you can read a blurry newspaper clipping describing how the owner, Billy Duggan, had to fight to come to open the joint, including having a hit man hired from El Salvador to kill him by the previous owner!
They take dinner reservations for groups of 6 or more, so if enough folks commit to going a bit earlier, we could probably score that front table or two to be able to watch the band from up above the small dance floor. Post a message if this would interest you so I know if we might have enough interest.
Hope to see you there.
