A few days after graduation in 2000, @anadara_arnold and I packed a uhaul truck and drove right to NYC with no apartment lined up and no job prospects. The goal was to find a bartending or waitressing job and a cheap place to live so we could audition. We quickly found a spot on the UES and shared a room with matching twin storage beds on 68th/1st. A few days later, I’m in Greenwich Village and stumbled upon this awning and immediately recognized it from the Rock Music 101 class I took for fun since I finished getting my college credits early. Ken Gorka was outside smoking a cigarette and I struck up a conversation with him. By the end of the conversation, I had been offered a job as a bartender and pretty soon after that, I worked upstairs answering phones, sending out marketing materials via fax to the papers etc during the day. I also played my first NYC show here featuring the original music I wrote. I played around once a month with a band- very green- just learning. I wasn’t the best bartender and I was still growing as a singer/songwriter but Ken and Paul took a chance on me and I basically lived and breathed the Bitter End for 2-3 years...through 9-11, so much learning... and I am so grateful. Now, almost 20 years later on Thursday evening-May 30th, I return for the first time with @joanieandmatt and the full band. This reunion means a lot! Come and celebrate together.
