Tonight’s the night for last-minute holiday festivities, before everyone goes off to snuggle with their own families. Your choice:

  • Gather at 6:30 pm at the corner of Church Street and Bloomfield Ave. to join a group of carolers. Free hot cocoa provided by Church Street Cafe. Bring non-perishable food for the Human Needs Pantry.
  • If you’d rather swig beer than cocoa, a group of Baristanetters have organized a get-together over at the Cloverleaf Tavern around 7:30 pm. Iceman, Miss Martta and Cathar have made it a definite date. The Barista may revel as well if she’s not too cold and tired to go out. All the reglar kibitzers are welcome.

  1. While my own attendance is pretty much definite, that’s a long way in the circles in which I move from “definite.” I could also quibble about the phrase “all the reglar (sic) kibitzers” are welcome.” All? Not quite. Come now, in other words. Mr. Fezziwig I ain’t.

  2. Tonight at 8 pm at Bloomfield High School – orchestra and chorus holiday program. It’s the first time I’m going, but I have heard it’s always a wonderful concert.

  3. Or, after caroling, drop in to Church Street Cafe & enjoy 13 HANDS’ amazing repertoire of texture-rock original compositions. 13 HANDS, aka Dalian, will be performing from 7:30 – 9:30 in a musical style that can be described as a funky pastiche of such artists as U2, Neil Young, Morrissey, Peter Gabriel and Pink Floyd.
    There is no cover charge.

  4. funny, I don’t recall sprites and mythic dwarves ever being called “thugs.”

  5. seemed like a nice turnout for the caroling. It’s the kind of thing that needs to happen (and grow) several years in a row, always on the Friday before. People will come back, bring their friends and plan for the event if the date is consistent.

  6. Ah, but, dear Barista, one of my favorite t-shirts (purchased as a matter of fact from the Providence, RI chapter of the Angels at a bike show), reads “Does Not Play Well With Others.”
    Still, it was nice to meet fellow posters and this site’s true goddess.

  7. Fun night Miss Marrta and cathar…glad we could enjoy laughs and libations. and seconding cathar’s sentiments…it was a pleasure to meet “this site’s true goddess.”
