If Music Be the Food of Love . . .

In preparation for the Mercantile’s upcoming birthday bash, Nemo and I have systematically applied museum wax to the recently lowered busts of the Mercantile as a preventative measure against excessive revelry.  Judge McClean, in an effort to elucidate the term “snappy attire” which has recently become the subject of much debate, would like to offer himself (right) as an example.  The evening’s schedule is nothing short of spectacular, including musical perfomances by the Faux Frenchmen, who specialize in Django Reinhart-era  hot jazz, and local Latin impresarios Tropicoso, The Queen City Brass and vocalist Patricia Linhart.  Two of the writers of this very blog will even play a little instrumental mood music in the downstairs lobby.   Birthday cake and and a champagne toast will top off the evening.  How often, after all, does one turn one-hundred and seventy-five?
