TGIFs Friends, Cocktails & Couture Review ^_^

From 1998 to 2004, I was what you would call, a faithful evangelist of Sex and the City.  In fact, Carrie’s style and flair gave rise to me being a Bloganista.  So naturally, any buzz of SATC2 tribute events would attract me, like bees to honey.   My first stop led me to Stir’s on First Avenue between 73 & 74th Streets.

With excitement levels peaking, I entered the cozy atmosphere spectacularly set. The candles lent idealism to the lavish decor. However, the event was oversold, over booked, and over populated with females, in an environment offering free or special promo martinis, cosmos & wines and a complimentary free spa station with mani, pedi & eyebrow threading, at that?  Needless to say, the cat fights broke out; ladies were kicked out (of the threading booth due to  poor communications and organization) & even almost passed out from heat exhaustion.

With disappointment well in tow, I came home, uninspired by my experience, and seriously doubting the premiere’s ability to live up to the series at this point. But my persistent BFF convinced me to accompany her to TGIFs Friends, Cocktails & Couture.  It promised FABulous cocktails, awesome appetizers & lots of girly fun! Now granted the Peach Martini @ Stir’s rocked my pleasure vibe, however, let me tell you that the Miami Vice, at TGIF immediately sent my doubts packing. And the Shrimp & Fries w/ Jack Daniel’s sauce…mmm mmm good! So far, off to a great start.  Then, hellooo; without warning, I was captivated by what appeared at first glance to be four young men about to goof off on the mic. We were serenaded, as TGIG kicked off the new Patio, by a phenomenon known as KOS; Kids of Survival, from Queens, NY.  As fascination sat in, Gary, the lead vocalist, informed the captivated audience that not only were they happy to Rock The Mic @ TGIFs (which they work at, when they aren’t touring) Friends, Cocktails & Couture, but these Rock-N-Roll revampers were the opening act for Bon Jovi’s ShareTheMic on Saturday, May 29th at the Meadowlands; the global platform that connects musical artists with Non-Profits to help generate awareness for causes will be a series of summer shows, in which Kids of Survival has the pleasure in kicking off.

So all in all; the view of the Manhattan from Sheepshead Bay, with my BFF Maxi, & four smoking infernos wooing & cooing the stresses & doubts away…Priceless!

  • Donna Wright

    I put bands their own bubble and then view the rest of music from outside of that and that’s where you find rock and alternative. And well take a guess at what alternative meant ? It must have been the alternative to something right. well it could never be an exact opposite because well that would make no sense and to make an alternative you would already have to be familiar with what your being alternative from.

    So your not really alternative as much as your derivative. That was probably really confusing huh. But what I’m getting at is that alternative is actually just another genre of rock that evolved past its beginnings. So your still using the same basics. Though that’s just what I made up. you’d be hard pressed to find an actually rock band that makes music now every rock band is alt rock. so its just a progression.

  • Jory

    I disagree with the premise of your page but I still think its pretty useful. I still really like your writing style. Keep up the great work.

It’s simply wonderfully open-handed with people like you giving extensively what exactly a number of us could have distributed as an e book to end up making some money on their own, most notably considering the fact that you could possibly have done it in the event you wanted. Those ideas also worked as the good way to understand that most people have a similar zeal just as my personal own to understand significantly more concerning this matter. I know there are several more pleasant sessions up front for individuals that browse through your blog post.
