Middletown P&Z Approves In-Ground Pool 2nd Phase Outdoor Improvements

IMG_0548

 

 UPDATE:  Most people we talked to said they prefer to swim in outdoor pools during the summer.  We checked and apparently we’re not open in the summer.  Since there doesn’t seem to be as much interest in an outdoor skating rink, we’ve decided NOT to put in a pool.  (I’ll save my “HOFF” costume for another time.)

Middletown planning and zoning approved the next phase for WesWings outside improvements.  As many of you know, last summer’s patio installation was the first phase of our overall outside renovation.  Last night’s meeting was one of the final hurdles we had to overcome to begin the installation of the in-ground pool.  Unfortunately, plans for the outdoor stage area were rejected due to concerns over loud noise disturbing area residents.  Along with additional landscaping, we will finally have the outdoor pool that Wesleyan has been lacking.

Of course none of this would have been possible without our generous contributors to our Kickstarter campaign.

While most people chose the $25 level – breakfast pail served while floating on a tube, seven people did buy the $500 level – name plated chaise lounge chair (reservation not incl.)  There were no takers for the $2,500 level where you could have a bucket of wings (or seitan) served poolside by Ed or Karen in their Baywatch lifeguard gear.

So be sure to join us poolside next fall for our grand opening!

Music Monday @ Red & Black w/ Lindsay Shapiro Nov. 4 6:30-7:30

1453536_10201730174509103_1592798117_nThis could well be the most surprising Music Monday of all- because we have no idea exactly what Lindsay has in store for us… her namesake having just created a controversy at Foxwoods not withstanding- this chanteuse has been compared to Portishead, early day Cowboy Junkies and Shania Twain by various campus musicologists- Molly Stern claims that Lindsay taught Miley Cyrus how to twerk in Summer Camp. So… anything can and probably will happen.

Come in for a panino and a fruit smoothie and leave with an indelible mark on your mind.

Music Monday with Hom3e Avenue on Oct 7th

1375704_10201507705187509_457578714_nThis is a very special edition of Music Monday for us folks at The Red & Black. Our own Rachel J Rosengard is back for her 3rd show!! Last year, she played with 2 different guys in duos- Alex Ginsberg and Brendan O’Donnell. Both guys refused to quit the band- so this time out they’ll do it as a trio. Alex was supposed to send the trio picture- but has not.. so we posted a pic from Rachel’s recent foursome.
They’ll still be covering all your fave indie-pop tunes and Rachel will amaze you with her uke playing-
Come for dinner- stay for the cool.

Grand Cousin at Red & Black Café

1380734_10201453948043614_487578668_nGrand Cousin is the hot to trot rock act on the Wesleyan campus right now- even a dude from das racist tweeted their latest video- and people tell us that their live shows are amazing. This stripped down, acoustic version promises to be one of our craziest Music Mondays this year. “Camera” is a catchy tune with just the right amount of creepy built in- that’s what hooked us- now you should come get hooked too!!!

Come for dinner- have a fruit smoothie- rock on.
