Holiday hangovers have all but worn off. The sweets are slowly diminishing from the pantry. The YMCA schedule is haunting your conscience. You want to drink more beer, but you feel all guilty about it. You’re still an angry driver. You still don’t call your parents as much as you should. House could use a good cleaning. That whole getting a job thing? That can wait. Resolutions were invented to make you feel bad. The DoneFors were invented to make you feel good. Read on, clean soldier.
The Cameron House Tuesdays from January through March
The DoneFors take on their third residency at The Cameron House in January. This one is for three months, folks! WHAT?!? Swing by the front room every Tuesday from 6pm to 8pm, January through March to find good people, laughs, astounding musical incredibleness, jokes in poor taste, beer for dinner, giant ant art installations on the ceiling, the odd little kid busting a move, the occassional cookie buffet, cold & slushy boots, warm & slushy smiles, and your old pals Janine, Liam, Paul and Brian.
