WTF: What the Folk! Open Mic returns at new venue

Hello gang,

I know that a lot of you have been inconsolable ever since it was announced that we would have to leave our beloved Spencer House but... weep no more. It gives me great pleasure to announce that WTF! has found a new home and it is fabulous!

As of January 26th, 2018... we will be meeting as usual every second and fourth Friday of the month at the historic George Wright House [aka the Women's Council House] located on the corner of Inglis Street and Young Avenue in the south end of Halifax. 

This is an extraordinary place... both of beauty and of history and so I ask you to please take a few moments to acquaint yourself.

The space we will be using consists of the acoustically rich large double parlour, the sun porch, the kitchen, and the butler's pantry. There is a washrooom and facilities are available to prepare tea and coffee; however, unlike Spencer House... there is no on-site baker to create mouth watering desserts and so we are looking into options. Perhaps going on post Christmas sweets diets is in order :)

The actual civic address is 989 Young Avenue. Entrance at night is through the Ramp Door only. 

There is no parking on the premises as the driveway is reserved for the building's tenants; however, there is plenty of parking on Young, Inglis and South Park plus there is a pay parking lot next to the apartment building at 1030 South Park Street.

For those who choose to leave their cars at home... there are at least 5 bus routes that pass by the corner of South Park, Young and Inglis - #14 and #9 plus the University Routes #10, #17 and #18.

I expect that we will have some minor adjustments at first; however, I also expect that it will be nothing our merry musical band can't handle with humour, humility, and grace :)
