Tonight the Roosevelt Dime boys are playing at Apothéke, an apothecary themed speakeasy behind a secret door in Chinatown. Very 1921/2006… reminds me of my day working at The Box. Regardless of your feelings re: nouveau speakeasies, this should be a lovely time in a beautiful room. Please come, wear something sparkly, and make a nice little Monday out of it.
Roosevelt Dime at Apothéke
Monday, February 27th

Little by little the bird feathers its nest, and object by heart burnished object we surround ourselves with lovely necessities of memory and function. It is these things that make a silly Apartment a Home or a silly Wednesday an Occasion.
Whether my nest is an old farmhouse, a sixth floor tenement walk up, or a brownstone basement... whether I share it with family, vagabonds, women of heart and mind, or a little brown cat and a sweet ginger banjo, my principal joy is filling it with light and laughter (and corralling).
