January Sixth is King's Day or Epiphany- the Greek word for "reveal." In Christianity this date marks the day the three wise men made the trek to Bethlehem, got a load of that baby Jesus and realized he was a divine kind of little cat. In some parts of the world, this is also the first day of the carnival season which means there's absolutely no point whatsoever in going on that post-holiday diet. King cakes are already on the shelves of New Orleans grocery stores; parades and parties started on Wednesday, and there's even a web site counting up all the events and counting down the seconds until Fat Tuesday. (As I write it's 32 days, 14 hours, 45 minutes and never mind the seconds)
In Washington, we only make a side swipe at celebrating the season, but Little Red and the Renegades will be at Haydee's this Friday night to kick our town into the spirit. 9 p.m. No cover!
On Saturday night the folks of Goin Goin Gone are back at Hank Dietles- the new headquarters of the Quarry House's music scene. We sure miss the bourbon and beer list at Quarry House, but this little joint has a little more dance room and just as much character. Check it out- no cover...again!
