Santa’s Lounge is back

  • Nov. 27, 2006 9:00 a.m.

Submitted article–Santa’s Lounge Night will take place on Saturday, December 9, upstairs at Meegan’s. The fourth annual Lounge Night is now a Charlotte tradition-in-the-making, a event clearly distinct from the island’s round-the-year coffeehouses. Many islanders use the occasion to sport their more glamorous eveningwear and luxuriate in the sophisticated setting above Meegan’s store. “The view and the venue–and probably the wine– really add something,” says musician Wendy Watts, a co-organizer and performer at the event.
Lounge Night talent will also include Roly Thompson, Lynn Lee, Frank Wall, Elizabeth Inkster, Pat Fairweather and others. The suggested donation is $10 plus a non-perishable donation to the food bank. Food or drink for the potluck buffet is also welcome.
Since the first Lounge Night in 2004, the event has raised over a thousand dollars and dozens of boxes of food, to help out local families in need. The musicians themselves are donating not only their talents but also countless hours of rehearsal time, even though several of them-including Watts–have had babies recently and are juggling rehearsals with childcare.
“It’s made me even more enthusiastic to have a chance to get out and play music,” laughs Ms Watts. The Dec. 9 event begins at 7 pm, upstairs from Meegan’s. Info, call 559-0011.
