All Tomorrow's Parties
Or last night’s, to be accurate. The office Christmas party went off without a hitch. Which is to say, I stayed mostly sober, awake and kept my dinner down (which is good because it was the finest steak I’ve had in over three years) – All marked improvements over last year. I even played a couple decent games of pool. Afterwards I swung by the Global Pop Conspiracy shindig a couple blocks away and met up with Sean from House of Hotsauce. It was crazy busy and impossible to talk or move, so I only stuck around a little while, retired to the Tap for another drink then back home to crash.
There seems to be the makings of a university reunion this weekend, as there’s a bunch of my old classmates in town for one reason or another. I expect tonight will involve some more drinking and shouting over loud music. Happy holidays.
Mark Kozelek plays a solo show at the Horseshoe January 30. Tickets $12.50. Sounds like a bargain. I will be in Las Vegas, however. Alas.
Lee’s Palace will be shutting down for two weeks at the start of January for renovations, including a new stage 2.5 feet higher and 4 feet deeper. Neat.
