Synopsis:

Hedwig, born a boy named Hansel in East Berlin, fell in love with an American G.I. and underwent a sex-change operation in order to marry him and flee to the West. Unfortunately, nothing worked out quite as it was supposed to – years later, Hedwig is leading her rock band on a tour of the U.S., telling her life story through a series of concerts at Bilgewater Inn seafood restaurants. Her tour dates coincide with those of arena-rock star Tommy Gnosis, a wide-eyed boy who once loved Hedwig… but then left with all her songs.

Easter Bonnet (and basket?) Night at Fridas, April 4

Be as creative as you want to be! JR is in town so watch out!

Bar Frida will hold the second annual Easter Bonnet Contest on Sunday, April 4, 2010!  (for photos from the event go to the gallery!)

Customers/Contestants are asked wear a bonnet of their choosing.  Be as creative as you want to be!   If it won’t fit under the low ceilings downstairs, you can enter through the rear and head straight for the balcony for a cool margarita!  Tom says, “If you’ve got a nice basket, bring that too!” 

Go simple and pretty or dramatic and splashy!  There are great supply stores within a block or two of Fridas where you can make yourself as pretty as, well, a new hat. Get there early! 9pm starts the contestant parade with judges awarding prizes to the best through the night.  How eggszzzciting!

The “best ever” Birthday Party, Tom says…

With barely any standing room left on Wednesday night, a 10 piece Mariachi band ascended the back stairwell to greet the crowd waiting.   The crowd sang and danced for an hour.   Beautiful! Then, bartender Mario and dance partner Christian performed two classic folkloric dances that brought down the house!  To finish the night it seemed everyone wanted to take it off for Tom!  What a great night!

   Tom called it the “best party ever!”.  It was!
