Comedy Zone Revue #2 at the Carlyle Club

Another great show for us at the Carlyle Club this past weekend with Just June entertaining everyone. Our thanks goes out to everyone who made it out to support live entertainment in Alexandria.
We have a great show lined up for this Saturday. The Saints and Sinners Tour makes it stop in Alexandria on August 2nd. They are hilarious, making insights about current events and current culture that are dead on and yet funny. Be ready to laugh. It is going to be a full night of entertainment for you.
Laughter is the only tranquilizer that has no side effects. So get a group of friends together and come out for a great dinner and be prepared to laugh the night away. Laughter is actually good for your heart and your soul, so if we can help you live a little longer we are here to serve.
It appears we have hit on something that was sorely missing in the DC area. Get drssed up, come out for a great meal, and laugh. Do not forget to take advantage of our complimentary valet parking. There is nothing else like this offered anywhere. Our unique brand of entertainment coupled with great food and service makes for a night of fun. Not to leave out the incredible art deco styled room to go along with everything.
We hope to see you this saturday for the show

Standing Room Only Grand Opening for the Comedy Zone Review

We asked for your support last week for our Grand Opening at The Carlyle Club and you all delivered. Our comic, Mike Siscoe, delivered an outstanding show to a standing room only crowd to get the Comedy Zone kicked off at what is being described by many as the nicest venue they have ever been to.
We do it all again this weekend for your enjoyment. Please grab a group of friends, make your reservation and come out to the Comedy Zone Review this Saturday at the Carlyle Club.
One strange thing was not every one took advantage of the complimentary valet parking, opting instead to park in and pay the garage. Maybe I wasn't clear before but the valet parking is free to the Comedy Zone guests and we feel adds to up scale event we are putting on.
I heard many comments about how nice it was to get dressed up and come out for an evening of great music, watch a great show, and then dance to a wonderful band. People from as far away as Richmond came up for the evening because there is nothing else like this offered anywhere.
Chris Calloway Brooks, who is Cab Calloway's grandson was at the Carlyle Club on Friday evening with the Cab Calloway Orchestra, made the comment that the Carlyle Club is the best venue in the entire country, comparing it to the famed Rainbow Room in New York without all the bs.
So come out and decide for yourself. We look forward to seeing you soon.
An observation made by a few of our Zig's regulars, and myself, it was wonderful having our staff coming back together. Sherri smiling, Heather Crosen working side by side with her sister in law, our Heather stopping by on her way to Ibeza to help out for a little while, really makes it all worth while, putting together a world class staff to go with the venue.
Without you, our guest, it would all be for nothing, so Thank You from all of us at the Carlyle Club.

Grand Opening - Comedy Zone Review at the Carlyle Club

I can not believe it is the middle of July already. Where has the summer gone?
Well, it is time for our Grand Opening of the Comedy Zone Review at the Carlyle Club.
This new venue is second to none and we are producing a show worthy of the Cotton Club of a bygone era.
Grab some friends, get dressed up and come enjoy some fantastic food along with a great night of entertainment.
The Carlyle Club located in the new area of Alexandria housing the Federal Courthouse and the Patent Trademark Offices is ready to go with our Grand Opening July 19th with the Comedy Zone Review.
The show starts at 7 PM with live jazz while you enjoy your dinner created by award winning chef, Andrew Conlin. Dinner is followed by our variety segment, then our headliner, a nationally touring comedian from the Comedy Zone, comes to stage. After which the band continues with dancing and partying into the wee hours of the morning.
The Carlyle Club is a one of a kind restaurant. Styled after the "supper clubs" of an era long gone, you know it is different when you walk into the lobby. Upon entering the main room you are transported back to Harlem, circa 1930, with the rounded booths along the back, art deco styling throughout and the servers dressed in red dinner jackets. Add to the setting our award winning chef, Andrew Conlin, doing his magic in the kitchen and the ingredients are in place for a special evening. On top of that add some great entertainment and the evening is ready for you to enjoy.
We will offer our guests valet parking although we do have a parking garage in our building.

We need your help in making this work. If you know someone who would be interested please forward this to them.

Thanks for waiting for us
Tom, Wanda, Heather and our family here at the Comedy Zone

Settling In at The Carlyle Club

Everything is moving along for the Grand Opening of the Comedy Zone Review at The Carlyle Club. I am getting settled in running the place and Wanda is building the bar business slowly but surely. We started a new program we call the Speakeasy from Monday to Friday from 3 PM to 7 PM with $3 beer, wine and drinks and reduced prices on appetizers. Hoping to get our PTO crowd in after work regularly. I can not tell you how nice it is to be back in Alexandria. The difference between Chevy's in Greenbelt and The Carlyle Club in Alexandria in unbelievable. It is good to be back home.
We are going to revive the Zig's Steeler Show every Sunday. Please let all of your Steeler fans know we are back in business. We are going to have a lot of fun this season. Come be part of the best Steeler Bar in the nation, now at The Carlyle Club.
Other then that, Bettina and Johnny are rolling along down at Seacret's, who are celebrating 20 years as a restaurant this year. our Heather is doing great at Ibeza in DC, although she is occasionally working at the Carlyle Club with us. It is so nice to have the family working together again. Heather C is doing well at Mike's and will be working Saturdays with us at the Carlyle Club. Sherri is hopefully returning to us in a couple of weeks, so please come out and visit her again. Aynsley will be working during our larger events to help us out. Rebecca and Chad are coming back on Saturdays to make the Comedy work right. Too bad Magic moved to North Carolina. We are getting the band back together.
We really need your support for the beginning of the Comedy Zone. July 19, 26, August 2, 9, 16
please try to make one of our shows with a group of friends.
Thanks for reading and see you soon
