NEWS FLASH - SATURDAY MAY 18 6 P.M. Curse this rain. We're waving the white flag and CANCELING tonight's concert with Rev. Chris and the High Rollers. It doesn't look good for tomorrow- more rain but stay tuned and stay dry.
We're halfway through our big 30% OFF SALE, ALL BOOKS, ALL MAY spring cleaning. Sales are brisk but we've also been briskly bringing new books in so the choices are still myriad. Thirteen shopping days left so don't miss this chance to come out and find some great books for that leisure time that is awaiting you, right around the corner. Come on down and renew your shelf - you know you want some fresh reads.
There's also a second chance to do a different kind of spring cleaning - not of your mind but of your basement, your attic, your garage, etc. The first of the season Mt. Airy Train Station Yard Sale got rained out last weekend. So, we've rescheduled for this Saturday May 18, and though I've learned to be skeptical of weather forecasts, at the moment Saturday looks perfect - not too cool, not too hot and plenty of sun. Give us a call at 215-242-0854 and hold a spot. The official times are 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. but you can set up early or stay late. And if you don't need to do any spring cleaning, then come on over and check out the treasures some of the rest of us are bringing. Cynthia and I are plotting how to get all the books out of our van so we have room to bring in an absolutely marvelous couch we no longer have room for.
Speaking of seconds, we're looking forward to the second half of a very full Saturday this Saturday, May 18, from 7 to 9 p.m., at Walk a Crooked Mile Books - Rev. Chris and the High Rollers performing a free concert - the second of our fledgling Mt. Airy Train Station Concert Series. This high energy, four piece band, has a great sound and original music a la New Orleans and the Harlem Renaissance. Check the link to hear "Hide the Reefer" and an original song caught for YouTube at a recent Mermaid Inn performance.
I'm trying to keep this missive short - I so need an editor for these rambling blogs - so let me end by saying that the free tickets are still available for the upcoming performances on Saturday May 25 and Sunday May 26 of Mount Airy Home Companion in which the faithful troupe crosses over the line and takes the show to Chestnut Hill. See our archive blog entitled Francophiles rejoice for all the details. By the way, no concert over Memorial Day Weekend because yours truly is part of the acting troupe - don't miss it.
Greg and Cynthia
