November 2007

In this month’s marlo monthly for November 2007, Holiday Party Venues, Holiday Cooking (Or Not), Happy 10th Anniversary and Free Admission at the Zoo!


It’s not even Thanksgiving yet, but that’s not keeping Retail America from acting like it’s December 21. Candy adorned in red and green foil is everywhere to be found. Holiday songs waft over any public soundsystem. Thousands of Santas sit patiently at the mall, awaiting their next snotty-nosed kid who’s still working through their Halloween loot. Hell, even the current issue of Time magazine has an essay on ‘Perpetual Holiday Syndrome!’ All of which makes us wonder–maybe resisting the early onset of peace and love ISN’T the way to go. So this year we’re taking a different approach–if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em!

We jump on the bandwagon, below, with suggestions on where to throw the perfect holiday party for any budget. But before we get to Christmas, we have to make it through Thanksgiving…and we’ve got the perfect answer to that age-old question, uttered by thousands of wives to their husbands the Friday after they’ve spent all week cooking, cleaning and entertaining: “You’ve got to get your annoying relatives out of the house. NOW!” And the best part? It won’t cost you a dime.

Welcome to marlo monthly, The Holiday Issue, Part I!
