Connie’s Ric Rac Re-Re-Opening Party

Press from Philly Weekly for tonight's show! Come out, this is gonna be HUGE!
When Connie initially named her shop on Ninth Street the ‘Ric Rac’, what she really meant was ‘bric-a-brac,’ an assortment of fascinating junk. Decades later, with the Ric Rac reopened as a performance space run by her musician son and her comedian other son, the venue stays true to the concept with stage acts that run the gamut. Following a hiatus, Connie’s is bringing comedy back to the market with a show featuring members of 6th Borough who have co-opted a ukulele player for their act, as well as something surely salacious from club owner Frank Tartaglia. On top of the entertainment, Connie’s promises to feed you chicken in its most popular and least healthy form: it’s free, and it’s fried. -Abdullah Saeed
