Some people enjoy fine dining on Valentine’s Day. Some people like to 
stay in with their loved one….and we have no truck with either 
activity. But if you like to dance to rock and roll music BEFORE either 
of those activities, come to The Rhumb Line for The Cripple Cove Quintet 
featuring the Goddesses on Friday Feb. 14th. from 9:30pm to 12:30am.

  Dave says, We’re joining a musical health club this week and exercising our synapses with that top ‘o the heap pied piper and malarky master, Mr. Dennis Brennan. No relation to Walter. Big D has turned out to be a favorite around these parts, causing swooning women and male consternation. He comes fully equipped with a fabulous set of pipes, a harmonica, and a repertoire so vast as to inspire nosebleeds. My favorite singer!
He’ll be backed by an all-star cast featuring Mr. Matt “Dillon” Stubbs, on catarrh, and  Broomful ‘o Blues drumpeter, Mr. Chris “Craft” Rivelli, a veritable powerhouse of the Blues foundry system.  Both Matt and Chris have travelled the world incessantly and extensively, spreading the word with the likes of James Cottontail, or Jerry Porntoy, or Roomful or is it somebody else? I can’t remember. But you won’t forget the incessant carnal pounding of the boogie beat as you suck down that sixth beer…. It’s gonna be a blast.! See ya there!
