holy cow! while these dog days of summer have been creeping by at a snail’s pace, the s-dubs interns have been on a wild goose chase searching for a dog and pony show that’s more fun than a barrel of monkeys.
but so go the best laid plans of mice and men… most places visited, it seems like we’re a fish out of water or might be a bull in a china shop. the music is all bark and no bite, and we’re being watched like hawks when we’re really wishing we were just a fly on the wall. you can put lipstick on a pig, but sometimes you still end up feeling like the runt of the litter.
perhaps we should just let sleeping dogs lie, but i’ll be a monkey’s uncle if we don’t address the elephant in the room: it’s a pet peeve of ours when we see too many sharks horsing around at these one-trick pony parties. they might look as innocent as lambs at first, but as soon as they get drunk as a skunk, they turn into eager beavers and you realize you might be a sitting duck for wolves in sheep’s clothing.
a little birdie told us that pizzburgh loves a dance night where we’re all part of the same pack, there’s no pecking order, or cat calls, or wolf whistles, everyone’s happy as a lark, and hearing a great song is like shooting fish in a barrel. it would be the cat’s pajamas if we could all run with the same herd every once in awhile, right?!
well, it’s time to take the bull by the horns, there’s no more need to hound us. we want you to hear it straight from the horse’s mouth, so let’s let the cat out of the bag: it gives us butterflies to announce that the next “STRANGEWAYS
” is upon us in two shakes of a lamb’s tail!
we’ve been busy as beavers getting our ducks in a row assembling a summer dance party that’s bound to be the bee’s knees! you’ll go hog-wild when you discover that it turns out you CAN teach old dogs new tricks.
remember — the early bird catches the worm. if that pig-headed sloth of a best friend of yours wants to show up fashionably late after their second cat nap of the day, you might miss the lion’s share of the music and end up as mad as a hornet. so just go stag and make a beeline as the crow flies straight to lower larryville and we promise you’ll be able to dance until the cows come home.
don’t be a scaredy cat! hopefully you’ll have enough horse-sense to take a break from the rat race and hoof it down to Belvederes Ultra-Dive
all bright-eyed and bushy-tailed for a dance party that’s destined to be a whale of a good time.
we can’t wait to see you soon. xoxo!
