Be shaken. Be stirred. A whimsical wham-bam of exotic enchantments, sleazy oddities, pop fancies, and swingin’ slingers broadcast from Ridgewood, NYC’s very own Shangri-Lounge. Best served chilled, garnished with signature swizzle schtick.

Avatar 6:52pm Scott67:

Less friction in the chimney, but the static cling could be an issue with the fake snow.
Avatar 6:53pm shangri-fa-la-la-la-la:

do dryer sheets work for that?
Avatar 6:54pm Scott67:

Chimney friction would charge it up again.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:57pm Satan Claws:

Santa is powered by chimney friction.
Avatar 6:57pm shangri-fa-la-la-la-la:

chimeny friction, however, is still very unpredictable. and is still closely monitored by scientists working hard around the clock.
Avatar 7:01pm Scott67:

It's because of the variable carbon content of chimneys which cannot be quantified.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:04pm Otis:

Hi Shangri-La! Just made it in time for the 2nd hour after vacumn, sweep and dusting the place today. Now relaxing with a glass of Roma wine.
Avatar 7:05pm shangri-fa-la-la-la-la:

Oh, Roma wine? That's Robert Redford's favorite wine, right?
Avatar 7:06pm shangri-fa-la-la-la-la:

I think I read that in my women's catalogue!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:06pm Otis:

We have a few dusty boxes of it in the backroom of the Sheena Speakeasy, leftovers from 1950. California goodness.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:08pm Pauly from Clifton:

Hiya, DJ Shangri-La, folks! Late, but loving the tunes!
Avatar 7:09pm shangri-fa-la-la-la-la:

Avatar 8:00pm Scott67:

Thanks Shangri-fa la la la, for your set. I'm not really into Xmas, and don't like Xmas songs. But your upbeat presentation and presence has warmed me to it. In this lousy year, I feel it's bringing us closer together. Thanks for the banter loungers. All have a safe & happy as can be time. ♡ from the Sunnyside of our beautiful planet.
