Yes, it is sad news, but everyone's favorite bartender is packing her bags and moving to Texas (where everything is big and yella). Exciting opportunities await down there, and she has made the difficult decision to leave us after 3 wonderful years. Tweety has been an important part of CLUB VELVET from the very beginning - through the many busy nights and many slow ones as well. She will be missed by all. Her secret recipes for all of "Kini's Kocktails" will be closely guarded by King Kini personally, and only passed-on to a bartender (or bartenders) who Tweety deems worthy.
You have only 2 (two) Saturday nights to drop into CLUB VELVET, wish her luck, and have her mix you a fancy cocktail like only she can. Her final CLUB VELVET bartending shift will be Saturday, November 28.
This Saturday (November 21) will be particularly important, as it will be the final night that Kini and Tweety will be working together (Kini, unfortunately, will be out-of-town over the weekend of Tweet's last CLUB VELVET).
It would be nice if you came.
One full hour of King Kini's cocktail exotica is featured often on Swanktown Radio with Gregg Wolfe.
Swanktown can be heard Saturday nights on KBEM 88.5 FM in Minneapolis, from 11pm till midnight.
