Thanks, Claire — I was so ready for this! But, I had my 9 yr. old granddaughter that evening — and don’t think kids are allowed, right? Dang!
By the way, you probably know about this concert at Town Hall Jan. 24, but do you know about Goldstar half price tickets? http://www.goldstar.com/e/78749 Dang, unfortunately I can’t go to this one either!!
Well, anyway, hope you had a Not-Too-Busy-Stressful and Happy Holiday Season! (is it over yet?)
FYI, Children under 18 are allowed until 10 PM, and we’ve had some good times with young audience in the past!
