New Year's Options

I'm sure there are many New Year's options in the FC, but a few have jumped out at me because they were either featured in the newspaper, are gigs by my friends, or... I'm on their mailing list.

1. The Terryl Lee Band, which includes my friend Jeff, is playing at Seaside Tavern at 9pm. Psych OK that gig is actually Jan. 31st, which my addled brain thought translated to New Year's Eve. Sorry. There's a lot going on here in Mississippi. Oh well that's good, means I can go to Jeff's gig in Jan.
2. Fairfield County Happy Hour Club is having a closed party at Monster B's. I'm invited to the FCHHC party because I'm its facebook friend... I'm not sure if they'll have a guest list at the door? I'd email them if you're curious. Their email is not on their new website, but maybe you can email them from their facebook page. I've very much enjoyed the HHC events I've attended.

3. Also, the Advocate informs me that Howard Stern regular "the Rev." Bob Levy will appear with former "Saturday Night Live" regular Colin Quinn at Hibernian Hall on Greyrock Place. See article for details. My internet access is sucking so I am not going to attempt to locate and add other links right now!

4. My friend Beth and a few other musicians are performing at SoNo Caffeine in Norwalk if you're looking for a more mellow vibe. I featured Beth's CD on Stamford Talk last year.

Please comment if you know of any other good options for New Year's in Stamford or nearby!

Happy New Year Kristen!
Im staying home, of course...maybe will get some early dinner or see friends, but there is nothing I like better than being in bed watching the ball drop on TV!
I was reading some hilarious thing in Time Out New York about different singles parties in the city; there is an all firemen/women singles party where one is guaranteed to rub shoulders with hundreds of NYC's single heroes...and there is a party that is dubbed at the largest singles New Year's Eve party in the area? country? world?....
Enjoy this new year because in the coming year you are going to know a level of exhaustion and love that you have never imagined!...fun too!...but once you join the parental unit ranks, your mind will never be free in the same way again!
Im gonna send you a link to a bear I found that plays womb sounds and heartbeat etc...to help the baby sleep once its out. Also the CDs of vacume cleaner and washing machine are helpful...be prepared and start early! A nursing pillow saved my back and probably my life!...and, wonderful as its all been, he is still cranky and not sleeping at 14!....leaving me with fond memories of my nights out on new year's eve in my youth, and the love of a good night's sleep in a comfy bed!
I think Im officially OLD!
Have a great eve...be careful out there!
xoxo

Kristine!

The TLB show is on Jan 31st! Not sure who's playing at Seaside tonight, and I'm sure it'll be a great time, but it's not us!

Happy New Year! I love apostrophes!

The Rev Bob Levy/Colin Quinn show at Hibernian tonight has been cancelled due to poor ticket sales.

Well I know it isn't snowing where you are ST, but it is here :( Doesn't change our plans - we are still staying in! See you when you get back!

Well, it is too late for most, but I had one of the most amazing dinners EVER at Brasitas...

Mr. Z said...

Brasitas, eh? Should have stopped by for a visit, we always enjoy the company.

On the way back from Napa (excellent, as always) Brasitas looked dark, but it was hopping at 10pm. I'm guessing they didn't stay open past their normal operating hours.

Manager Mom said...

Mmmm... New Year's at Napa would have been good too!
