Play Santa and 51 3rd Show

10 Dec


The Ale House is running a toy drive this month for children at the Sunnyside Center, serving families in North Central Troy.  Please bring a new, unwrapped toy to the Ale House to help make this holiday season brighter for some of our youngest neighbors.

Front Parlor theme: “End Times.”


Also, Front Parlor (Troy) will start promptly this month.  (Yep, house lights down, start emcee shpiel at 7:30 pm.)  Abby is keeping banter light this month (hold her to it, please) for folks who wish to attend both Front Parlor and the “Everything is Terrible!” show at 51 3rd Street that begins at 9pm.


See you ’round the mic on Tuesday.
