Wednesday, 2.23.11

Thursday, 2.24.11

Thursdays are always EPIC. This week is no different. I wish I could be everywhere, but on this night I’ll be at Southpaw, where I will be representing for the ladies along with some other very talented women.

If you can’t make it for whatever reason, please don’t stay home! There’s too much to do!

ALSO!

Songwriter Sessions returns on Thurs 2/24 celebrating Black History Month.

Kenny’s Castaways – 157 Bleecker St. 7pm; $7. Featuring Sabrina/Giorgio & more.

The SpeakEasy returns to the Bronx! It seems to have eluded me for several months, but trust, if you are invited to one (hint, hint), I strongly encourage you to try to go. It’s always free, there’s always homemade food and drinks (crafted by Cavalier and Co. for a nominal donation) and the SpeakEasy is a great opportunity to meet talented and positive people.

8:30pm SHARP- 1:30am-ish
Pelham Parkway, Bronx
Email cavwins@gmail.com for details (even I don’t know the exact location!)

Check out some footage from a past SpeakEasy: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CBtR1n8ERKg
