Bright Lights, Big City


Con Edison doesn’t have the most fans right now, but don’t hold that against one of its founding innovators. Delve into the world of the Wizard of Menlo Park himself at Thomas Edison’s Stag Party. The 
notoriously hard-to-find speakeasy the Back Room will dust off the teacups (which it uses to dole out hooch) for this formal evening of turn-of-the-century trouble-making. Jerron “Blind Boy” Paxton, 
Michael Arenella, and the Astor Boys will do the serenading while gorgeous ladies Gin Minsky, Grace Gotham, and Hazel Honeysuckle do the shaking. Mike “The Barber” Haar will wield his razor, and 
David Eiduks his razor-sharp wit. Note the party’s only conditions: “No ‘ladies’ 
allowed,” “gentlemen’s attire” is a must, and “floozies are welcome.”
