All The Cool People Will Be There By Beth Comery
Yeah, I know George Clooney is doing that thing on Friday night, and he’s an okay guy, but these things always feature an endless parade of self-absorbed dummies saying things like "I just had to do something." And that ’something’ just happens to involve lots of television cameras. Here’s another option: Maurice (rhymes with ’loris’) Collins proprietor of the Wild Colonial Tavern and noted trivia quizmaster sends along this invitation.
The Wild Colonial, with a little help from our pals at Narragansett Beer and Guinness, will be running the bar at a fundraiser for Haitian relief and for the social justice programs at St. Michael’s ’ the folks who helped bring us hits like The Institute for the Study and Practice of Nonviolence, AIDS Care Ocean State, Southside Community Land Trust, CityArts and Community Boating. Cultural programming all day, headline act in the evening, kids games, etc. And, for a measly buck you can buy a chance to win a week at a fabulous house in Ireland ’ our fabulous house in Ireland.
The event is Brigids Fire ’ the first party of the St. Patrick’s Day Season! And this picture here is taken from the above-mentioned fabulous Collins house in County Kerry, the Aunts House at Derrynane Bay. This place is unbelievably beautiful with mountains, surf, golfing, monastery ruins, and you can ride horses on the beach which is the best thing anyone can ever do.
Brigids Fire, Sunday, January 31st, 3pm to 9pm, $10 adult, $5 student, Roger Williams Park Casino
