What’s New at Trixie’s Beauty Bar?
Trixie’s Whine with Wine, Reading-Optional, Book Club & Social Hour
Tuesday, July 28 @ 7pm (Right here in the salon)
This month’s book? Bad Girls Go Everywhere by Jennifer Scanlon, a stellar biography of Helen Gurley Brown, the original Cosmo Girl & author of Sex and the Single Girl in 1962 (the foremother of Sex and the City). Like Mad Men? Read this book to get the real story of the times… See you there.
Come on down…
Tuesday, 2/24 at 7pm Trixie’s Beauty Bar
We’ll have wine and snacks and good conversation. (Maybe we’ll even talk about the book or something). Can’t wait to see you!
What we’re reading right now:
Bitter is the New Black: Confessions of a condescending, egomaniacal,self-centered Smart-ass — or why you should never carry a Prada Bag to the unemployment office by Jen Lancaster
We had a record number of folks (including some cool husbands) join us last week to discuss Steve Martin’s entertaining autobiography, Born Standing Up. Best of all, one of our illustrious book club members actually attended Garden Grove High School with young Mr. Martin. As you can see from some of these 1963 yearbook pictures, Martin was always a goofball (as well as a cheerleader) and clearly had no trouble being in front of an audience. Enjoy!
Next Meeting: Tuesday 3/25, 7pm — book still to be determined, I’ll keep you posted.
Pamela Anderson Got Married…Again!
While we understand it isn’t really news, it did get us going on a pool to see how long this marriage will last. Maybe this one will actually last five seconds longer than her series of weddings did with Kid Rock. So far, we have bets ranging from 3 months to 8 months. Care to wager? The prize will be a voodoo doughnut from the Little Red Bike Cafe. You know you want to… Post a comment to participate.
While we’re on the subject of Pam and her foibles — you gotta see this one: http://www.superpam.com/ a site that provides charts, graphs, and a photographic timetable of the development of Pamela Anderson’s boobs. Just in case you were curious!
November’s meeting of the All Fun Book Club will be on Tuesday, 11/27 and we’ll be reading “Rococo” by Adriana Trigiani. Do join us or feel free to participate here via the blog! We have a lot of fun and hope to see you there. We’ll also be getting ready for a Halloween party this weekend — if you need help with makeup, fake lashes or hair– do let us know, we still have appointments available on Sat 10/27. Pictures to come…
