The new hot spot in town, Cured/18th and 21st, is having a big to-do on December 5th. A shindig. A soirée. Take your pick.

Here are the details:

Sounds fancy.

There’s just one thing. I realized while reading it that I was looking for information to tell me what it’s in aid of. Surely people aren’t spending $100 a head just for...fun? If I spend that kind of money (and rarely, I might add) it’s for a charitable cause. Or a political fundraiser. It boggles my mind that Howard County has enough people who will lay down that kind of cash for no good reason.

But that’s just me. Cured/18th & 21st is a business, after all. They are entitled to have fancy events that are purely commercial ventures, even if I can’t wrap my brain around it.

Here’s a thought. Since this is meant to celebrate the repeal of Prohibition, couldn’t they donate a portion on the proceeds to some local group that assists those struggling with alcohol addiction? The Serenity Center comes to mind, but I’m sure there are others. Have a big party with all of the trappings but share the wealth with folks for whom alcohol is not just a big party.

And that’s your unsolicited opinion for the day.
