Tonight, Thursday, December 7th, 9 pm at 354 Metropolitan Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11211
Forgive me for not writing you all a newsletter last week I was…yet again hungover. But at least that makes me sound cool?? Maybe? I definitely missed you!! (please think I’m cool!!)
Happy December!! It’s yet again that time where your panic attacks are not about your own life, but about the gifts you’re going to have to get for your family, friends, and people you hate that you see frequently enough that it would be weird if you didn’t get them something, because, let’s face it, you’re an adult now and it would be so selfish for you to just spend your money on your rent this season.
One thing I love about NYC in the winter is that every bar and restaurant really goes all out for holiday decorating, which is what makes me feel comfortable justifying never buying a single stocking. If Santa wants to give me a gift, he knows he can find me somewhere alcohol is served. Another reason the holiday season is cool, it is the final month before all of the people you thought were your friends participate in dry January.
I think people only do dry January to make other people feel bad. The month itself is America’s biggest hangover, and you’re just gonna sit there and pretend you can raw dog it? Shut up and have a glass of wine. People who really want to improve themselves start in March when they take pride in not celebrating St. Patrick’s Day. Only college kids celebrate that one anyway, so it’s basically like a free spot on the bingo card of sober march. It’s really not that hard to say no to a green beer, and then the rest is easy to say no to. I’m all for an excuse to stay in and not go to the bar, but if you do dry January, you are abandoning your friends when they need you to wingman the most during this cuffing season. Can’t risk that so close to Valentine’s Day.
Anyway, my Christmas wish this year is that you all will be ready to have a beer tonight with me at Fette Sau!! We have a hot hot hot lineup (which is why the snow this morning probably didn’t stick) with some of my favorite people in town, and I can’t wait to show off their talent with you guys!
