Clubs for Those Who Choose to Schmooze
By Pia Catton at
The Wall Street Journal
"Keeping up with the nebulous, ever-changing nightlife scene in New York City is almost impossible, but over the years some broad-brush trends have emerged. And there's a good one snowballing now.
For most of the 20th century, night owls ventured out to the city's clubs and lounges both to see a show of some kind—a band, maybe, or a singer or comedian—and to do a little schmoozing with friends and colleagues."
(...) One of the more inventive upcoming acts is "Cocktail Hour," a series of brief ballets designed to evoke various drinks. Created by choreographer Marilyn Klaus, the dances range from the semi-burlesque "Gimlet" to the naughty schoolgirl "Shirley Temple."
