Triumphant Return To Smoke Show (Chick'N'Deli)
Climax Booked Second Saturday Every Month, 3-6pm
After a rollicking successful matinée Saturday February 15 at Smoke Show (once-upon-a-time The Chick'N'Deli), Climax has been booked (with Chanteuse Dorothy Rose) for the second Saturday of every month from March 14.
Owner John Ciampino, also owner of alleycatz, has remodelled the room in style, with more open higher tables and seating, brick wall on the north side, the long bar intact and a bigger stage. Dorothy complimented John on the Ladies washroom, with its fresh flowers and boxed tissues (a nice touch by John's missus). There's even a pool table next to the enlarged kitchen. The pulled pork and chicken wings were favorites, as were the fresh fries and salads.
Despite the cold weather and limited publicity we had a respectable crowd of about 80 people February 15. We hope we'll fill the 120 seats comfortably in the months to come. Everyone was quite happy to pay the $5 entry fee, supporting the musicians with a large proportion of their pay.
So do come along, meet your old friends and make new ones March 14 -- remember it's 3-6pm, to give sufficient time for the staff to prepare for the supper crowd and the band which comes on at 10pm on Saturdays t set up. See you there. Ciao!
