* MCats Gig #37 – Clocktower Happy Winter Friends

Hosted by Clock Tower Law Group.


(1) Rebecca and I wanted to have a holiday party but ran out of time, (2) Acton-Boxboro did not do “ABig Night Out” this year, and (3) my law firm (www.clocktowerlaw.com) turned 11 (which is WAY better than 10), so we had a party! Embarrassingly, my band, The MCats (www.mcatsband.org), also played. This was not just another boring soiree, this was Happy Winter Friends Part 1!

In the immortal words of two superheroes who are also best friends:

Baman: What’s Happy Winter Friends?
Piderman: It’s the holiday of wishes and best friends!

Lindsay Small and Alex Butera are proud! (Or embarrassed, not sure which.)

Legal restrictions prevent me from saying what was served, but let’s just say there was phood and an oben par!

WHO: Friends of Erik & Rebecca, The MCats Band, and Clock Tower Law Group!
WHAT: Happy Winter Friends Part 1!
WHERE: Clock Tower Place Cafe, Building 7, Maynard MA 01754 (Same place as “ABig Night Out.”)
WHEN: Fri 03/23/12 6pm-11pm (The party went to 11! Get it? Because 11 is better than 10! Actually, it went later.)
WHY: It’s the holiday of wishes and best friends! (See above.)
HOW: What are you, are reporter?

Yeah, I know, not technically winter. Band was booked.

Those who rocked salute you!
