CGMC INVITE YOU TO "HANG TEN"
Ready for a romp on the beach? The Connecticut Gay Men's Chorus is anxious to sign up to be both lifeguards and surf board instructors. They'll supply the sun, the sand and the sunblock lotion and you bring the beach balls and the tropical drinks, with or without little pink umbrellas.
Get set to party hearty as the wild and wonderful guys of the CGMC invite you to "Hanging Ten!" On Saturday, May 3 at 8 p.m. and again on Sunday May 4 at 4 p.m., the guys, probably clad in short shorts and flip flops, will inaugurate the summer festivities at the Co-Op Arts and Humanities High School, 177 College Street in New Haven, just a few doors past the Shubert Theatre.
Hang on to your beach blankets and towels as Annette and Frankie team up with Snookie and The Situation. Yes, go back and read that line again. These fellows are known for their clever irreverence and this time around is no exception., Put on your most colorful and comfortable mu-mus and get set for fun-fun-fun in the sun-sun-sun.
Great harmony and lots of unexpected treats are in store, so put on your sunglasses, your visor and bikini and take part in the festivities. For tickets ($30), call 203-777-2923 or online at www.ctgmc.org.
Don't forget the CGMC's monthly Saturday night offering of Bingomania, definitely not the game your blue-haired granny played. Games are held, with a different theme each month, at the Annex Club, 554 Woodward Avenue, New Haven just off I-95. Call 1-800-644-2462 (CGMC) for news on the May 17th event. Joan Crawford will be there to oversee the fun. Prizes and contests make the evening major comedy. Admission is $20, with doors opening at 6 p.m. for the 7 p.m. games. April was Peep Show Bingomania, with Easter Bonnets on parade.
Prepare to hang ten, putting all ten toes off the front of a long board while surfing a wave, kicking back and having a rad day. Jump in, the water's fine.
