A Quick Note From Miss Bri
My apologies for the irregular blog schedule these days, but it’s been hard getting back on track since the holidays due to a variety of issues in my personal life and my other professional life (which helps pay most of the bills at the moment). Anyway, I’ll be back on the Friday Happy Hour Review Trail this Friday somewhere in West Hartford. (Email me if you’d like to meet up and offer your input.)S
THE HEAT IS ON
Get In On These Events,
Before You Get Left Out In The Cold
Taking a cue from one of my favorite movie soundtracks (and also showing my age), I’m calling this part – THE HEAT IS ON! (It goes with title.) So right now, I’m trying to get back in the swing of things with what I hope will become a regular feature. I’m starting with updates on a few happenings coming up at two of my favorite places. (As always, if you have events in the world of drink, food and entertainment that you’d like to promote, send them to me: MissBri@thedarkdivarules.com. I’ll do my best to get it featured in this blog segment.)
