My friend Meighan O’Toole of Stuff! Consignments in Gainesville has started a fun new series of events called Extra Stuff! and this coming Wednesday, September 19th, yours truly is the extra stuff. She’s hosting Ladies’ Night at Club Eclipse Restaurant (also in Gainesville) and I hope you’ll join me for it.
There’ll be food and drink specials (i.e. wine!), and I’m supposed to say a word or two. I’m also supposed to do that prior to enjoying a drink special but, well, we’ll see how that goes. (You want me to be thisclose to wine and deny myself some? What kind of savage are you???)
Call (ok, text) your friends and put Wednesday on your calendar. Meighan and Jason Flis, the owner of Club Eclipse, do so much to support our community and in this case they’re throwing their support behind Girls’ Night Out. Yes, that’s a cause. And it’s cause to kick up your heels (or just take the damn things off) and catch up with your girlfriends for a few hours. I hope you’ll join me!
Wednesday, September 19th, 7pm
Club Eclipse Restaurant, 5615 Wellington Road, Gainesville/703-508-9399
(And for your shopping pleasure prior to Ladies’ Night, hit Stuff! Consignments at 7482 Limestone Drive, Gainesville/703-753-2330)
The event scheduled for today at The Griffin Bookshop & Coffee Bar in Fredericksburg, VA has been rescheduled for Sat. Dec. 21st, 2-4pm. Why? Because the books ordered for today’s signing have almost completely sold out!
They’ll order more and I’ll be at the shop in two weeks. Come on out for some last minute holiday shopping, a piping hot beverage, and a signed book. They make great gifts. 🙂
This coming Saturday, December 7th, I’ll be signing copies of 500 Acres and No Place to Hide at The Griffin Bookshop & Coffee Bar in Fredericksburg, VA. Ever been there? It’s incredible.
Cozy, yummy, and smack in the middle of boutique and fabulous-shop-filled Caroline Street. Can you say “finish your Christmas list“? I sure can.
I’ll be at The Griffin (723 Caroline Street, 540-899-8041) from 2-4pm. After that, I’ll be out playing Santa. Shhhhh. Don’t tell Chris!
If you’ve never been to Crest Hill Antiques and Tea Room in The Plains, I hope you’ll pay it a visit this coming Saturday, Sept. 29th. I’l be there from 1-3pm signing copies of both books and trying not to eat all their delicious pastries!
The Monday after that, I’ll be off to Salon Emage for their First Annual Charity Cut-A-Thon. If you haven’t made your appointment, please call 540-341-4052 now and join me there on Monday, Oct 1st. You’ll get a great haircut, at a great price, for a really great cause. (Plus complimentary wine and gift bags bursting with goodies!)
Hope to see you on Sept 29th AND Oct 1st!
