Upcoming social events
The Saturday OT Committee and Operatic Society will gather to watch the Belmont Stakes at the usual place and time; Saturday, 4PM at Marks Pub 1287 N Washington St, Wilkes-Barre (map it).
None of us are big horse race fans but this is just another excuse to infuse cash into the malt beverage industry to ensure it's liquidity. After all, we don't want D.G. Yuengling & Son to go the way of General Motors.
The 21st annual Thompson Street Block Party is scheduled for Saturday, August 8, 2009. Pencil that one in on the calendar. This year Mark is threatening a “live” set of music. I shall make a motion at the Committee meeting this Saturday that we make our début of the the new theme song. As the musical director I have proposed in the past that we replace our slurred version of Bohemian Rhapsody with a totally incoherent rendition of Beethoven's Ode to Joy in the original German. The motion has always died for lack of a second for some reason. Failing that maybe me and the Rain Man can reprise our duet of the songs from Jesus Christ Superstar that we performed at his wedding to much acclaim.
And just to throw out one more thing Douglas Adams fans have to hunt the wocket.
