The Way to Start Celebrating

Today is looking like there will be some good events on the agenda. A few of us are planning to go see Julie & Julia this afternoon, to start. I've been excited about this since I first saw a trailer a couple of months ago. I got a text message from my brother Steve saying that he and Rory were 10th in line at a showing in NYC on Saturday. If another crazy person besides me had been around on Thursday, I may have gone to a midnight showing. Seeing it with this bunch will be a lot of fun though, I'm sure.

There was a last minute e-mail to Orkestar Zirkonium fans saying they were playing this weekend. Given that it was tonight and that the show sounded like great fun, I sent out a Facebook event notice to about 150 people. We'll see how many end up going. I love introducing people to OZ.

How could I pass this up, really:
It's late notice, but there's a great show brewing for Sunday night. The Handsome LIttle Devils are coming to town, and we're performing with them.

This quartet of Vaudeville Nouveau performers presents their latest creation, The Squirm Burpee Circus. We've seen them many times, and they will dazzle you with juggling, comedy, music, dance, and amazing feats of daring.

Hosted by Circus Contraption's own ringmaster, Armitage Shanks, and featuring the balkan beats of Orkestar Zirkonium and the Freaks & Femmes burlesque review!

With a follow up message:
Hello again-

FISHTANK ENSEMBLE from San Francisco is joining the bill for tonight's show! A 7-piece from San Francisco, this group plays incredible "cross-pollinated gypsy music." Don't miss out!
This is shaping up to be a great beginning of multi-day birthday festivities!
