FREE Natural Hormones Bristol Seminar

January 19, 2012
On Thursday, January 19th, 7pm at The Bristol Train Station will be the venue for a free seminar. Men and women who are dealing with (or soon may be) the symptoms of hormone loss, are invited to spend an informative evening with three of the nation’s most respected authorities on hormone replacement therapy. These “hormone heros” will discuss hormone imbalances and the treatment options available to both men and women. Hormone loss effects us all at some point in our lives and is a very hot topic among menopausal women. Men as well can benefit from hormone treatments designed to meet their specific needs. Its a topic that doesn’t get much coverage and we'd like to change that.

Miss Tess to perform at Machiavelli's

January 19, 2012
Another great show coming up this Thursday, January 19th — 7pm — Miss Tess and The Bon Ton Parade are back. Tickets are $20 for Buffet and the show. Pork Tenderloin and Potatoes Anna featured on buffet along with signature pizzas and finger foods. ALSO B&T Distributing will be holding a bourbon tasting that night to warm the cheeks. Miss Tess is a New York City based songwriter and performing musician, who tours regularly with her band, as "Miss Tess & The Bon Ton Parade". In addition to Tess's tasty licks and prowess on her 1940s archtop guitar, the current lineup includes Will Graefe on guitar, Danny Weller on upright bass, and Matt Meyer on drums. Inspired by styles of vintage swing, blues, country, and folk, Miss Tess draws comparisons to artists such as Patsy Cline, Willie Nelson, Peggy Lee, and Chuck Berry, but maintains a style all of her own. "She’s a musical chameleon, recalling at various moments Tom Waits’ barfly humor, the cabaret-rock of Beirut, or even the wink-wink wit of early Bette Midler." – Holly Hughes, Blog Critics. For more information please call Machiavelli's at 423.573.9955.
