Looking for a home for these cats
We're moving to England, and as part of the move, we need to find a home for our two cats: Fluffy and Pei-Pei. We could get them shot and chipped, but quie apart from the expense, the thought of them being tossed in the hold of a plane for hours, and destroyed at the other end if their chips don't work, is heartbreaking.

Fluffy and Pei-Pei are sisters, seven years old, and have lived with us their whole lives. Fluffy is like a cuddy toy of a cat, and is sweet, affectionate, and very cute indeed. Pei-Pei is smarter, funnier, and more adventurous, but also has a sweet side that she turns on if she really likes you. We want if at all possible to find a home for both of them together. They have both been spayed and do not have fleas. They were given immunizations in 2006, and have tested negative for FIV and leukemia. They've been indoor cats their whole lives, and are well trained in using litter boxes. They could be outdoor cats (and are fascinated with going outdoors) with a little adjustment.

We just want to make sure that they're well looked after by someone who would love them, so if you have a home you could give to two of the sweetest cats you will ever meet, please let us know by replying here or emailing me at irennie@gmail.com

Notorious Retro Thursdays kick off this THURSDAY at Closet
Max Headroom

We're back, baby! :)

The retro Thursdays you know and love are back at Closet, Charlotte's newest progressive dance club!

Located on the corner of Elizabeth and Charlottetowne (former home to Eden and Sky, and in front of Cuisine Malaya), the area has plenty of parking....contrary to popular belief!  Not only are there 70 spaces around the club, the newly renovated Elizabeth area has parking on any number of sidestreets as well.  There are also scads of restaurants (Nothing but Noodles, 1900 Mexican Grill, SK Net Cafe, etc) and is super convenient to both downtown and Central for those who like to do a little party hopping!

As always, the event is 18 and up, a minimal cover (with secret passwords to get in free before 11....stay tuned!), and playing the new wave, alternative and dark classics you love.  We even have our beloved  Jarrett behind the mezzanine bar.  DJ TinTin will be joining us in February, and I already have special events planned, including the return of the amazing Boston-based DJ addambombb on 2/18.

So yeah, the old gang is back together (we're not calling the night "Notorious" for nothin'!), in a shwanky new location, and we're going to get crazy with the cheeze-whiz and kick out the jams!
