Salon News & Special Guests/Hosts/Themes for Sunday April 11th and Beyond!

SALON, that Bistro Award winning, MAC Award nominated open mic created and hosted by Mark Janas, returns to Etcetera, Etcetera - 352 West 44th Street, NYC 10036 - on Sunday, April 11th from 7PM to 10:30PM.

The optional theme for the evening is "MAC Attack”. That can mean anything having to do with The MAC Awards (or any awards – winning, losing or otherwise), or anything having anything to do with Mc/Mac/Mack - Mack and Mabel, Mack the Knife, McNamara's Band, McDonald's Big Mac, etc. For that matter, “MAC Attack” could be seen as a metaphor for anything having to do with compulsion or addiction, food or otherwise!

Remember, any material, on or off theme, is always welcome at Salon!
