favorite saloon, the Artist’s Quarter which is fast asserting itself as one of the few lasting/ local musician friendly establishments. @2speakease means Local Musican Friendly with capital letters as there is a commitment to hosting LOCAL music during prime hours. @2speakease applauds them and hopes to pop down and support them very soon.)

Also a shout out to
Cory Hinkle as his play
opens at the Guthrie’s Dowling Studio
Feb 4, 2011.
This is a big moment for Workhaus (and also for the Guthrie).
