This week’s update started on Thursday with this post at April’s and local alumni of Saint Michael’s College in Vermont meeting at Tatiana’s in downtown Lynn. (One came from NH.)

State Representative and City Councilor at-Large Brendan Crighton held a political fundraiser at Tatiana’s Friday with music from Not Sure Community College. The band includes his brother, Kevin Crighton. A political fundraiser in Lynn is always a party (bad joke).

I was keeping it within walking distance Friday, so I ordered a drink called a “Not a Martini.” It was true to its name and delicious.

 

A few steps later, I was the recently opened R.F. O’Sullivan’s where I ran into Brother’s Deli owner George Markos and Jordan Avery. (Never drink and shoot in manual mode.)

Saturday with Arts After Hours could be its own post, but keep scrolling and we’ll be done in one.

Why is it in Bars of Lynn you ask? A temporary bar is set up in a bank vault, which is also the entryway to the theatre where there’s a sign, “Food and drink ARE allowed.” Before the play, “Complete History of America (abridged)” Tony Gallo hosted an open mic with Arts After Hours’ artistic coordinator Carolyn Cole – who also happens to be in the above featured Not Sure Community College.

Friday and Saturday night were met with the loudest laughter we’ve heard in Lynn since they tried to rename us Ocean Park!” – AAH

Tickets are available here.
