Mr. Postman delivered my copy of Guitar George Baker's new CD, Mojo Lady, and I got to listen to it a couple times during the workday - very unusual, interesting takes on covers of Johnny B. Goode and House of the Rising Sun as well as some funky originals.
The Rotary Club of Southington is proud to announce its 2nd annual Mardi Gras Night to be held on Fat Tuesday, February 28, at Anthony Jack's Wood-fired Grill. The proceeds of this fundraiser have been designated for relief efforts for the victims of Hurricane Katrina.
Chef Barry DePaolo has promised to again serve up some very tasty cuisine (see menu below), which will be accompanied by several interesting wines presented by Beringer Blass Wine Estates. Tickets to the event are $65/person and can be obtained at Anthony Jack's, by calling John Ryan at (860) 276-3843, or from any Southington Rotary member. If you were there last year, you know what a great night it was; if you missed out, do NOT allow it to happen again. BE THERE for great fun while aiding the victims of Hurricane Katrina.
