THE 'ALTERNATIVE' WAY TO KEEP CHRISTMAS

Dec. 19, 2001 – This pre-holiday weekend's "Friday Night Alternative" will be a livelier-than-usual one, with the American Yacht Harbor management making it the annual Christmas party for the shopping complex and marina, too.
With house musician Sally Smith on keyboard and vocals, Joe Ramsay on saxophone and flute, "Mr. B" on drums, Jerry Harris on more vocals and a bass player to be announced, the emphasis will be on jazz, FNA host Corinne Van Rensselaer says. But, assuming everyone is in the mood, there'll be caroling, too, she adds, and "I am sure there will also be some guest artists joining the melee."
It all happens Friday — with extended hours from 6 to 9 p.m. — on the AHY Marlin Deck just outside The Color of Joy gallery and boutique.
For the kids (and anybody else who'd like to watch), "The Grinch That Stole Christmas" will be loaded into the VCR, courtesy of Red Hook Video. And for everyone there'll be complimentary refreshments — with holiday cheer thrown in for good measure.
And, oh, yes, FNA T-shirts and tickets for the artwork raffle of the month will be available for purchase. Proceeds from both will go toward keeping "Friday Night Alternative" up and running in the new year.
