Lets's make stuff: Mens Craft Night

I'm thinking about starting a men's craft night at Fancy Tiger Clothing. It would replace Seamster - for men who like to sew. I like to sew but sometimes I want to make jewelry, build shelves, paint, etc... This new night would leave it wide open. Every week? Once a month we allow the opposite sex? Let's have regular projects. Work with local charities? Beer?

I'll check the stars, check my schedule, and turn on the feelers.

On the Corner with guest Dj's Ed & Connor

Get ready for psychedelia...

I'm incredibly excited about having the hosts of Radio 1190's Under the Mattress guest dj tonight. These guys are the kings of old rock-n-roll and I suspect some newer weird shit is going to hit the decks as well.

You can also expect to hear the sounds of Fancy Tiger as I share dj time with these mavericks.

The night starts @ 9pm. Things get weird about midnight.
See you there!
