Halloween Night in Chinatown

Well with the current financial tomfoolery down on Wall Street making most everyone poor enough to vote Democrat and none of you upstanding citizens coming down to see us at Hockey Night in Chinatown we've had to do a little extra fund raising on our own.
Dave, Rev. Timmy and Saké Mike have gone off to aid some friends of theirs in a little side project.

They won't be back until 11 November when we'll set things off proper with the Pittsburgh Penguins at the Detroit Red Wings.
Word is Saké Mike's enjoying it so much he may stay an extra week.

Also, we're having a bake sale. If you'd like to contribute baked goods, just slide them in a manila envelope and mail them to:

Fontanas

105 Eldridge St.

(btw: Broome Street and Grand Street)


Meanwhile why don't you, I don't know, watch hockey?

CMJIC't - 8pm - Tues - Oct. 21, 2008


CMJ is in town and the folks at Fontanas decided they'd rather make some money and keep the bar open than watch us all grab-ass around while the Bruins and the Sabres skate around on the TV.
So shave off that soul patch or somebody might mistake you for a music journalist (more on the hazards of being mistaken for a music journalist below.)

Not to worry, though, Dave Guadalahorowitz and Rev. Timmy will be flying the Hockey Night in Chinatown flag high. But they'll be up in the DJ booth in the back, not conveniently perched in front of the TV at the bar (with Fontanas opening it's doors to the public, they thought it best to have the boys, you know, concealed.)

Come on by though, there is a good chance you'll get to see Dave and Rev. Timmy force feeding some poor sophomore from Northwestern the entire CD catalogue of Teenage Fanclub or Pavement while cranking Astroqueen at bone-rubberizing volume.

At least until the F'tanaz folk tell 'em to cut it out.

In fact, misdemeanor assault is so likely that they're not even taking bets at the OTB (they're also not giving action on Rev. Timmy falling down the stairs or spilling beer on someone.)

So slip on that Arcade Fire T-shirt, make sure you've got your favorite badge holder thingy to wear around your neck and slack your way down to...

Saké Mike
dug up some stuff to help keep those music scribblers at bay.
That's his home town buddy Scott Carlson on the bass there (we think.)

It's just like Hockey!

It is if you do it right, anyway.

Oh! Right! Hockey! Here's Sid the Kid's 100th goal, 200th assist and 300th point.
The bank is open!

Obama-Rama, Homina, Homina! - Tues - 7pm-11pm Oct, 14, 2008 (HNIC't delayed is HNIC't denied)


With the New York Stock Exchange plummeting faster than the Maple Leaf's playoff chances (we've got a pool around here as to what day in November the Leafs will be out of the running) things around the Hockey Night in Chinatown Corporate Bunker have been a tad more frantic and disorganized than usual (no mean feat.)

Rev. Timmy's investment strategy went from a strong position in Hockey related companies (Amalgamated Tooth, LLC , Canadian Blood Replacement Products, Zamboni Corp.) to a portfolio of almost entirely handgun ammunition, tear gas, dehydrated baked beans and little green army men (not in stocks, mind you, but the actual items. Charlene can barely make it to the fax machine due to several boxes of SuperBean! Spicy Style and a big bag of German Light Infantry cluttering up the reception area.) There is some talk around the water cooler that the Reverend's actions are not in response to the Stock Market, but a typically childish reaction to him being well in last place in the HNIC't Corporate Bunker Fantasy Hockey League.

Dave Guadalahorowitz's
response to these trying economic times is somewhat more moderate. He spent all week tinkering with a 1973 XB GT Ford Falcon Coupe and glueing feathers to football shoulder pads.
Nothing says, "I'm ready for the end of times" like a car with right hand drive and a blower.

Saké Mike
has taken his wife and barricaded himself in a deluxe executive suite in a Comfort Inn in Hackensack, NJ and explained that "If the wheels come off our entire economic system, the last place anyone will notice will be "The Sack."

So we're all a bit too preoccupied around here to get HNIC't together.

Not to fear! The fine folks down at Fontanas and Heeb Magazine have gotten together an Obama Fundraiser for a measly $50 you can enjoy Stand Up Comedy, DJ's, Live Music and...
(wait for it...)
Open Bar!
(Shhhhhhh. Last time someone said "Open Bar" around here, Rev. Timmy ran right through a sliding glass door, smashed several items of (borrowed) patio furniture and ruined about a dozen and a half deviled eggs.)

So pour some boiling water in your factory sealed bag of beans, mix in the flavour powder™ and come on down to...
Obama
-rama!

Till then, why not ponder the fact that John McCain has the same first name as a guy who used to dress up like a clown and then rape and murder little boys.

Just sayin'.

The Devil is
inside the eggs!

And the eggs
are inside me!!!!!

Rev. Timmy spied the words "Open Bar" on my screen from across the room and now there's Spicy Style flavour powder ™ all over the place.
And there go the sprinklers.
Great.
