June 7: Strings Attached

I'm sitting here trying to justify that headline. I don't know why I wrote it, but now I'm stuck with it. How's this? One performer toured with De La Guarda, that show where people flew around dangling from straps, or strings, if you will. Number two in the lineup is a string bean. I'm not kidding. Wait'll you see him. The female to his right must have a string bikini lying around somewhere. And lastly, the guy in the glasses is a journalist, so he may be, or will be at some point, a stringer for some newspaper. Anyway, come to the show and guess which one of them is stringing you along. By the way, TimeOut NY made our May 24 show a "City Pick" and we had an insanely jam-packed house, so call for reservations - it could happen again.

May 24: Forgive Me For Being So Selfish

Finally, summer is right around the corner. It's a time for walks in the park, biking along the river and quiet weekends in the country. Umm... You know what? Why don't you just pray for rain, stay in the city where you belong and join us at beautiful Cornelia Street Cafe? Forgive me for being so selfish! Happy Spring!
