August Dispatch from Callahan’s

Comments Off on August Dispatch from Callahan’s

I hope summer has been treating all of our Callahooligans well!  There’s a lot coming up and in the works, so here goes:

  1. Host Julianna Serimann gives us Villains Trivia tomorrow night (August 3rd) at 5:30 pm SLT.
  2. Mark your calendars for the annual “welcome back” party: Go Fourth Into the New Year on Tuesday, September 4th at 6 pm SLT.
  3. Remember that Trivia/Friday night events will return to the every week schedule after September 4th!
  4. It seems impossible to believe that we’re already planning for October, I know. But reserve Friday, October 26th for the Git Down at the Ghost Town Gambol. I’m guaranteed to go overboard with the decor, and Callahan’s Halloween gathering is always a lot of fun.
  5. Some minor changes have been made to the Place: the sofa area (where the rug is) has been downsized just a bit, to allow for more dance space, and a couple extra stools have been added to the bar, to accommodate more folks who prefer that space.
  6. Dutch has put up a TV watching area in one of the beach huts. Want to see photos from Place events past? Do it from the comfort of a virtual couch.
  7. We’re investigating some new ideas for Undays, including a Reader’s Theater event and a potential Murder Mystery Dinner. Stay tuned!
  8. Are you an artist (either SL or RL?) Would you like free exhibit space? You can simply display, or even sell your items. We provide three beach huts on the sim’s Artist Walk at no charge on a quarterly basis. We’re looking for potential replacements for the next quarter. IM Leb or Dutch to let them know you’re interested.
  9. A gentle reminder that Callahan’s Cigar Box is how we stay in business. During the summer, when we only have events on every other Friday, this can be a bigger issue than usual, since we don’t have as many people filtering through the bar. Please make a stop to donate now and then, even if there isn’t an event. Your fellow Callahooligans thank you!

Many thanks to Dutch Galaxy for taking photos of Earl Ghostraven’s wonderful hammered dulcimer concert. Earl has been playing this instrument for around 3 decades, and it certainly showed! We’re hoping to have Earl back for a special performance around St. Patrick’s Day 2019.

June Dispatch from Callahan’s

Comments Off on June Dispatch from Callahan’s

This month, we’re in search of a a few things. Maybe you could help out?

  1. Lia Winslet’s term as PAL (Patron-At-Large) is coming to an end, and we are searching for her replacement for the next quarter (July-September). It’s a minimal time commitment: You host one Unday per month and attend one Senior Patrons meeting (we schedule that so everyone who needs to can attend). Aside from helping the Place, you’ll get to see how at least some of the sausage is made here at Callahan’s. Interested? Please contact Leb or Dutch or ASAP!
  2. Are you an artist (either SL or RL?) Would you like free exhibit space? You can simply display, or even sell your items. We provide three beach huts on the sim’s Artist Walk at no charge on a quarterly basis. Our first round of artists are due to move on at the end of June, so we’re looking for potential replacements for the next quarter. IM Leb or Dutch to let them know you’re interested.
  3. A gentle reminder that Callahan’s Cigar Box is how we stay in business. During the summer, when we only have events on every other Friday, this can be a bigger issue than usual, since we don’t have as many people filtering through the bar. Please make a stop to donate now and then, even if there isn’t an event. Your fellow Callahooligans thank you!

Dispatch from Callahan’s Place: May 2018

Comments Off on Dispatch from Callahan’s Place: May 2018

Greetings, Callahooligans!

As we move into the summer season, as I thought this would be an appropriate time to update you all on what’s going on at the Place. In no particular order:

  • New PAL (Patron-At-Large) Lia Winslet is settling in just fine, and hosted her first Unday. We hope you’ve had an opportunity to hear her DJ!
  • We’re about to move into the summer schedule. That means that, after this week, Friday night Trivia will move to every OTHER week. So, there’s Trivia this week (The topic is “Dicks,” yes, really!), but none on June 1st. Then we pick back up again on June 8th.
  • SAVE THE DATE! For the first time in a very (!) long time, I’ve booked live entertainment. If you’re a hammered dulcimer fan, don’t miss Friday, July 20th at 5:30 pm SLT, when Earl Ghostraven will take Callahan’s stage. I discovered this gentleman playing at an inworld music event, and discovered that he really doesn’t perform much in SL, despite his obvious talents. He normally only plays in SL for charities, as a favor to people he knows, so this is a big deal for him to play somewhere new.
  • Please don’t forget to feed Callahan’s cigar box. It gets much harder to pay rent for us during the summer months, especially since we don’t have as many events.

Hope to see you all belly up to the bar soon,

Leb
