They’ve sung in packed auditoriums in around the world. They rock out to the electric guitar and sing contemporary and classic tunes at the top of their lungs. Many of them, like Arthur, use a walker or cane to get to their spot on the stage. This is the Young@Heart Chorus, where for over 30 years elderly New Englanders have defied the labels that accompany their age to embody the wild and rebellious spirit of rock-n-roll.
Meet Jeanette and Arthur!
Bartenders Guy Streitburger and Patrick McDonald stand behind the counter of Gingko Blue’s long bar, polishing the shakers and spoons they’ll use to mix up the Prohibition and Literary-style creations that form the foundation of their rather large specialty cocktail menu. They are incredibly friendly, clearly skilled, and don’t take too seriously the admittedly serious business of crafting perfect cocktails.

Happy Thanksgiving to each and every one of you, I hope most of you are well on your way to experiencing a full blown food coma and had the foresight to travel with sweat pants today, just in case loosening the old belt wasn’t enough to help aide digestion. Lots to be thankful for today considering we live in a state where there is no shortage of good music and good people! Enjoy your day…and your leftovers.
Aww yeah! It’s almost time to hunker down and succumb to tomorrow’s food coma. There will be many a vodka soda in my hand come tomorrow evening as I prepare myself for Nunz Family Overload. Thankfully, there are plenty of engaging shows happening tonight.
It’s almost that time where we all become zombies due to tryptophan and apple pies, so we better make the most of our time before the food coma hits. Tonight’s shaping up to be seriously fun, so let’s give ol’ Tuesday a look-see.
There’s plenty to celebrate and be thankful for all this week so no need to wallow in any sort of Monday misery. Instead I suggest we all hike up our Party Pants, while they still properly fit, and get out there and rage it up! There’s a bunch of fun stuff happening all week long so kick things off in style by getting up and therefore getting down this Monday evening!
