Oh, We’re Gonna Have a Wing Ding

“Oh we’re gonna have a wing ding,” sang Donald Fagen,“a summer smoker on the ground,”and thinking about this music makes me think of our Anniversary party. We’re going to celebrate our one-year anniversary of the cafe, and the five year mark for our flagship, GoNOMAD.com. There will be cocktails and hors d’oeuvres and many of our customers and friends.

I remember when I lived in Greenfield, way back in the late ’80s, and there was an event that I’ll always remember. It was at the YMCA, and it was a theatrical dinner party in which dozens of folks entered through a makeshift rabbit hole. Then the production began, and we were brought soup, then the rest of the courses, by costumed actors. It was a coming together that I’m sure many in Franklin County still remember. I think Court Dorsey had something to do with it.

So I am considering many options for this celebration. No rabbit hole, but I do want to make the party memorable. I want to have it at the cafe and in our website offices, and have it turn into an event that everyone wants to be at…Maybe we cook up some food on grills in the back parking lot, and block it all off to cars.

Our party invites will go out soon, and we hope to make this a special night to celebrate these businesses and bring together fun people from the valley to the cafe.
