It’s time to laugh

Feel like you’re drowning in negative buzz?  Maybe it’s time to laugh. You’ll laugh alright on Saturday night, right down the road in Beverly at 9 Wallis when Loretta LaRoche takes you back to Brooklyn and back in time to the humor of growing up with her Italian family in her hysterical show Love, Laughter, and Lasagna.

You can even eat some lasagna prepared by Beverly’s favorite deli Gloria Food Store before the show to get you in the mood.

You may remember Loretta from her PBS specials (see video below) or inspirational programs at North Shore Music Theatre a few years ago — and those programs were funny. Trust me: Love Laughter and Lasagna is even funnier!  Come on down; you’ll feel better!

Gloucester’s Joe Langhan (Food Network founder) brings his world-class pastrami to Beverly tomorrow night

Many of you know Joe Langhan from his work producing the Souls of the Sea videos.  What you may not know is that he’s a founder of the Food Network and created its signature show Emeril Live.  A couple of years ago, Joe brought world-class NY pastrami to Boston (see Globe article).  Tomorrow (FRI 8/11) he’s bringing his famous Beantown Pastrami right down the road to Beverly for a pop-up at our Beverly Blues Series.

If you know us, you’ll know that we love pulling what may seem like disparate people together for an unusually fun night (e.g., book signings with music, music with stand-up comedy, comedy with dinner, etc.)

It’s hard to predict just how much fun tomorrow’s show will be as we bring together Blues Hall of Famer, Joe Moss from Chicago and the last prophet of the funky Texas blues The Willie J. Laws Band for an exceptional night of music hosted by WZLX Music Director Carter Alan (who will sign his new book The Decibel Diaries at the show).

Add Beantown Pastrami’s world-class, hand-carved, NYC style sandwiches and … well … you just never know what can happen at the most intimate, elegant listening room on Boston’s North Shore. Get tickets here (cheaper on-line!)
