May 26 at Shangri-La, Part 1

Solitary_man_poster-203x300The last weekly coffeehouse of May is in full swing! Tonight’s first DVD was THE LABYRINTH (David Bowie, etc); tarot cards are now being read; Milo is running rampant (though in mostly cute way, despite knocking over the creepy butler cutout); good number of people are starting to come in….

Blair’s free book table is still available (I just snagged MEMPHIS AFTERNOONS by James Conway–heard of him/finally going to give him a try).

Another half-hour to the Penguin playoff game (at which time i’ll be over on I HEART RADIO, savoring Mike Lange & Phil Bourque’s broadcasting skills. Might not post much during that, so…
