Balcony Clubbing

A few pics from the Asolo Balcony Club’s Undead Party Thursday night.   The Asolo Rep Balcony Club, a new group devoted to encouraging appreciation of the arts among young professionals, hosted a party Thursday evening following an effectively creepy performance of The Mystery Plays by the second-year conservatory students. Halloween madness ensued.   Before […]

Hallowienie

I’m totally geeked out for this Oct. 31st.   By Hannah Wallace     I love Halloween (as I’ve said before). Our theatrical family used to go all out in Whitfield Estates: We’d decorate the yard with homemade creatures, starring a headless horseman Dad assembled by clamping a wood-and-pipe frame onto a sawhorse. We’d stuff […]

The Coming Fall

Autumn is upon us! Kind of! For now, at least!   By Hannah Wallace   Oh blessed blessed cool air! How I love thee! I want to hug you! I want to kiss you! I want to bathe myself in your loving coolness!   Alas, it’s Monday, and I’m stuck in the office. Oh well, […]

Monday Rundown

I’ll have more to say once the oxygen starts flowing back into my brain again.   By Hannah Wallace   Not much to report on today. I’m pretty wiped out, after boxing boot camp Thursday, hockey Friday, hockey and hockey again Saturday, and then hockey two more times yesterday.  Basically lived at the Ellenton Ice […]

Weekend Hockey Warriors

Come cheer on the unheralded women of the FWHL.   By Hannah Wallace   Photo by Barbara Banks; Sarasota Herald-Tribune, August 2007 Hockey tournament in Ellenton this weekend. I was going to write about the Sarasota Roller Girls derby-kicking our ice-hockey asses in the PR department (although we don’t have a movie promote, alas), then […]

The Fun Night Out

Saturday didn’t fit into any categories, but it sure was a good time.   By Hannah Wallace   I always liked the part in this Tomato Nation post about describing different nights out; I like to categorize things like that: The crazy night out where you go to eight different places on Main Street; the […]

My Way: The Hi-Way

Another questionable establishment wins my heart.   By Hannah Wallace   I love me a good dive bar. Like strip clubs and dirty jeans, there’s something comforting in seeming so casual and unsavory.   I’d love to have written the guide to the great dive bars of the area, a la Creative Loafing, who’ve already […]

Dating in Sarasota

Is this town a bad setting for the game of love?   By Hannah Wallace   I grew up in a pretty stable environment, relationship-wise: My parents have had a decades-long marriage, and I was stably without a boyfriend until…y’know, like last year.   So, like so many things about adulthood—those things I wanted to […]

Things Getting Going

Kicking off all kinds of seasons.   By Hannah Wallace   The Sarasota social season got started on Friday with the UnParty. Did anybody out there attend? I went courtesy of Mattison’s the last couple years, and would happily have paid to attend this year’s UnParty at Michael’s Wine Cellar, but I had a scheduling […]

Sept. 11

The stories we tell.   By Hannah Wallace   I wouldn’t consider a Sept. 11 post, but that there’s a neat 9/11 story from a Manhattanite writer that surfaces every year on her blog. “Neat” probably isn’t the ideal word, but a story well told, I think, whatever the appropriate adjective may be. Down-to-earth and […]
