Greetings again from my, what am I going to do with my time now that fantasy football is over, corner of the world. Since there is a pretty good chance you are reading this in 2014, HAPPY NEW YEAR! I trust we all took advantage of the traditional free cab rides and enlisted a DD, to make sure everyone made it home safe and without any legal issues in the coming months. Its really hard to believe its a new year already and its 2014! Where has time gone? Its another year of triumphs, tragedy, fun, frolic and misadventures and I for one am looking forward to. Onward as they say.
I had a chance to hang out with some very cool birds the other day at one of the classiest places around, Milano's on Elida Road and we had a blast. First off the wait staff was awesome. Second the food was absolutely top notch. You really must check out their sampler platter. Just trust me on this. You'll thank me later. And to make our little get together even better, performing in the atrium area was one of the new groups in town, Them Kids. Them Kids consists of Kat Brennan and Geoff Swick. Good stuff, great vibe and played a good mix of original music and covers. Check them out when you get a chance and by all means if you have never been there or its been awhile, you owe it to yourself to head over to Elida Road and visit the locally owned and operated and taking care of multiple generations in the Lima area, Milano's.
Don't forget coming up January 10 at Harry's Hideaway, Blackbird Promotions Presents FURRY FURY. FURRY FURY is going to be the biggest FURRY RAVE PARTY this area(it may even be the first) has ever seen. AND its for charity. Deb's Dogs to be specific. Deb's Dog is a "no-kill" rescue shelter for our furry friends. That means when you pay your cover, play a game or buy one of the very cool VIP passes you are helping out a local charity. Admission is only $8, $5 if you bring in a animal toy or treats and VIP All Access is $15 or $12 with a donation. 93.9 KISS FM'S own DJ OLDSKOOL will be spinning the tunes and will keep things pumping and thumping all night..Doors open at 9, the party gets going at 10. Dress up as your favorite animal( if you need help contact Blackbird Promotions on Facebook as well as the FURRY FURY event page) and be ready to immerse yourself in a blacklight, glow stick, strobe light, thumping, bumping atmosphere. FURRY FURY 1/10/14... Harry's Hideaway ...Be There....
In case you aren't aware, something very cool happens on the east side of town every Thursday. Specifically at the Holiday Inn. Its the Jokers Club Comedy Showcase. So just because its Thursday, you can't say there's nothing going on.
I know I've said this before but there really seems to be a major upswing in the amount of cool things that are happening in our area. That's what we wanted ...right? Remember we can all support the local scene, just go to something somewhere. At least that's what I think.
