Poof! The chance to snag a ticket or two to Arcade Fire's Big Sur show came and went....in about one minute. If you spent the morning jittery with anticipation and constantly refreshing the Henry Miller Memorial Library's Events page and were greeted with the opportunity to add your name to the "waitlist," join the club. Several of our officemates suffered the same fate.
Frozen drinks have been suffering a reputation as "cheesy" for a while. The last 50 years saw blenders (which used to be ubiquitous at bars) go out of style in favor of smoother cocktails. With the resurgence of tiki bars and the help of a few brave bartenders, the blended drink is now back and better than ever.
People: It's time to do some serious psyching-up for what are sure to be some adrenaline-infused moments next week: Arcade Fire tickets go on sale for their sure-to-be epic Bay Area shows in October. First up is an October 2nd performance at the Greek Theatre. Tickets for that go on sale August 22nd. Their second show is in the woods of Big Sur at the Henry Miller Memorial Library, a few days later on October 5th. Tickets for that performance go on sale August 18th at high noon. Mark your calendars!
