Earlier today, an event popped up on Facebook inviting folks to one final throw-down: dubbed "One Last La Paloma Extravaganza: A Night for Virginia" (referring to owner Virginia Iacobucci), it's billed as "a super-mash-up of all the great events we've had at La Paloma over the past few years.""We can all agree that this is very sad," the post reads, "but you know what? This is not a night for tears. This is a night to throw down the best freaking celebration of neighborhood, community and art that Frog Hollow has ever seen."
Event participants include: The Ear Cave; Other People's Stories; Syllable: The Reading Series; The Connecticut Improv Mixer; Sea Tea Improv; The Hartford Hot Several; Rabbit Ears Media; String Theorie; tuba player Ben Klein; Brian Cook Designs; "Official Live Doodler" Constanza Segovia; and something mysterious called "HaThaYoWriMo."
Festivities begin at 6 p.m. Head to the Facebook post and join up. Check back frequently for updates.
