While Chris Loffelmacher attends the International Cultural Programming Symposium in Cleveland, his friend, Phoebe Reese (entertainer, party hostess and self-proclaimed celebrity), will be filling in and sending you up-to-the-minute blogs on what's happening at Fresh City Life:
Hello My Little Pumpkins!
I'm commandeering Chris' blog for a couple weeks while he takes in all the cultural offerings in Cleveland. Chris and I go way back, we grew up together in North Dakota and then met again years later while my star was rising in San Francisco. He was a clerk in a gift shop -- and though we were an unlikely pair, we became fast friends. My star never stopped rising...and now I believe Chris is a clerk of some kind at the library...so we've both come a long way.
I'm in Denver rehearsing for a holiday show. I try to do a few charity events throughout the year and since I was passing through Denver, I've decided to throw in with the girls presenting Balls: A Holiday Spectacular. It's a great little confection of laughs and song and all the proceeds go to a worthy charity.
I'll be kicking off Balls on Thursday, December 9 and I'm thrilled to be working with some of Denver's finest cater waiters and temps to put this show on. We're rehearsing literally night and day (as a matter fact, my secretary, Raoul, is entering this blog post as I dictate backstage between moments on stage). I'm a giver, that's all I can say.
P.S. Some of my good friends here at the Library will be hosting a bake sale at the show and we'll be highlighting everyone's favorite recipes for balls. Yum!
