Party Time

This video is not happy. But, After spending the weekend being squired around Brooklyn’s finest gilded affairs (punchbowls and egg nog, champagne and candlelit dance parties) it occurs to me: New York Holiday Party Season=There is Enough Happy to Go Around. So. It makes total sense that NEXT WEEKEND some very dear friends are throwing a huge Wayne-stock style party called the “Jingle Bell Rockaway”. Live Music. Food. Beer from local breweries affected by the storm (beer unscathed, thank god). The purpose is twofold: a) raise money for Rockaway post-Sandy hurricane relief and b) throw a damn party in a place that loves to party and hasn’t had a good throwdown in a while. There are a few, true heartbreaking reasons to go to this (people STILL don’t have power or heat, where there isn’t still standing water there is now inches thick toxic mold, free food and drinks for Rockaway residents, and the Friends of Rockaway organization puts the money directly in the hands of those affected), but really, it’s going to be a great party. Buy tickets—that include transportation out there AND free drinks, wha??—or, if you’re feeling Claus-y, just donate here.

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).
