Dang Retox!  I got like three steps in that place and drinks were already being thrown my way!  Y’all know how to treat one of the fairer sex right!  Even the pretty ladies were super friendly.

Thursday night at Retox doesn’t suck.

LISA FISCHER is a singer who really gets around. Her life is an endless round of planes, trains, and automobiles, rehearsals and fittings. On tour with the Rolling Stones, Sting, Chris Botti or Nine Inch Nails, her name may not be on the marquee, but she doesn’t care. She’s busy loving every minute of it.

Tuckers since 1948How about a little pre-SuperBowl, game-day energizer?  Tucker’s Kozy Korner will be adding a memorial component to their already top-notch, eats and treats time in memory of the late, great Maurice White who joined a few other worthy musicians in that heavenly stage in the sky quite recently.  Might want to Uber this trip because they aren’t kidding when they describe their Mimosas as “bottomless”.  RIP Mr. White.
