Re: Next Step: Charity projects

Sounds reasonable, but I'm not sure why should we, the contributors, lose our voice. The community has done well with several projects, including the one with the Bench (which was originaly an idea by Anne Porter, that got support 5 days/50 posts after being proposed). Let's not be afraid of "endles...

Re: Cohen Verona

How sad. The last event announced on their facebook page was in November 2015, after less than a half-year run. Bowie Bar in Saint Petersburg has worked for seven months. Let's hope Verona would have more luck: own musical stage, busy concert schedule, such details as branded wine glasses - all that...

Re: Cohen Verona

Yet another reason to visit Italy (in addition to the fact that Italy is probably best place in the world).

The bar looks really good. Those fancy wine glasses (photo by Gaia Passamonti, via facebook), etc.

Re: Cohen Verona

Their youtube channel features one video at the moment, anyway, it's a complete recording of a concert:

Even a LC cover was played (guess which song)...

Re: Cohen Verona

Sounds as it's just the second "place" named after LC (Edmonton: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=36087), right?

Current rating on facebook = 4.9, based on 37 reviews; must be good for a local bar.

Re: Next Step: Charity projects

Good point, Ron (and I'm echoing the last phrase too). Anyway, knowing nothing about benches, I hope it won't require the double cost of its construction for maintenance in the nearby future (still it's better to have some amount of money for this purpose)... Personally, I'm thinking about - yes - c...

Re: Music You're Listening To

Lorde is my current musical crush. After viewing her last night's Glastonbury set I googled two names together - voila: “I think I’m pretty good now. I think I’ve made a good start . But I want to be Paul Simon.” She thumps her hands down hard on the table. “I want to be Leonard Cohen.” (Thump.) “I ...

Re: Random LC moment I am adoring today

Yesterday's farewell party in Bowie Bar.
Alas, Nina & Danil, the amazing team that has organized a memorial evening last November (viewtopic.php?f=13&t=37016#p362751), are leaving Saint Petersburg.
