Hooray for Hanukkah!

So as you might have noticed I’m like, professionally Episcopalian so I don’t technically observe Hanukkah as such. HOWEVER, I know a good thing when I see it and any holiday involving fried foods, fuel efficiency, ostentatious candelabrum (which let’s face it: Menorahs totally kick Advent wreaths’ butts on the Liberace Spectrum of Flickering Fabulosity) and showtunes, so I am all over it this year.

Wait…showtunes?

YES.

SORTA.

Written and performed by the lovely and sneaky talented Michael Garin, composer-lyricist for the upcoming Broadway musical version of Sleepless in Seattle and –more importantly– partner of the equally lovely and talented (and that’s just what’s INSIDE her bra) Mardie Millit, who has been my invisible friend for like thirty million years, this WILL get stuck in your head for at least eight nights.

P to the S: If you are lucky enough to live within commuting distance of New York City, do yourself a solid and see these foulmouthed lovebirds in person. Michael and Mardie play every Sunday night at Elaine’s (yes, THAT Elaine’s) and frequent Tuesday gigs at the Metropolitan Room.

    Adam Sandler must be banging his head on the wall. How can “the Hannukah Song” compete with this?
