haha.  That's so funny about Darren's former teacher.  Thanks for the background info about him being in Stranger Things.  I had no idea.  What a small world.

It was so great that Michael Feinstein thought of including Darren in the party for Liza Minelli.  It's so nice that Darren makes this great friendships with such talented and thoughtful people.  Thanks for the background info about Michelle Lee, Lilikoiluv.  I had no idea (again!).  What a nice H2$ connection!  Cross fingers for a video of a duet that happened!

Yes, TSG does seem to be doing well.  If one is into spotting celebrities, TSG is the place to be, especially if you are a fan of Darren.

Just when I said this in answer to your question, Jeremy:

Darren went ahead and tweeted this earlier on Sunday (sorry for my tardiness--I've been out for most of the day):

So contrary to what I said a couple of days ago, I guess Darren does indeed sometimes state ahead of time that he will be at TSG performing.  Embarassed

Lea Salonga, Andy Mientus, Keala Settle, Jenna Ushkowitz, Kevin McHale.    Lea, Andy and Jenna sound great.  They look like they are having so much fun!   When the bar is expecting so much talent to attend, I would love for them to have a couple of more microphones for the Broadway guests.  :happy face

Randy Havens is not Darren's former teacher. He plays a teacher named Mr. Clarke on "Stranger Things" and Darren was joking about his character when he tweeted "Say it ain't so, Mr. Clarke. You were my favorite teacher...until now."  :big grin

I shouldn't confuse things by replying to old posts. Embarassed

From Darren Criss Army:

Nice article !

Inside Darren Criss' New Piano Bar in Hollywood

8/18/2018

The Emmy nominee quietly opened a group-singalong bar where patrons--who have included Jon Hamm, Emma Stone, Hailee Steinfeld and many of Criss' former 'Glee' co-starts--"light up when they walk in to screaming 'Mamma Mia.'"

The Emmy-nominated actor spends most of his L.A. nights at the lounge inspired by a favorite of his and Swier, NYC institution Marie's Crisis Cafe. Tramp Stamp Granny's — the name is a way of taking back the phrase "tramp stamp" and commemorating a generation of tatted grannies — "is the place every 
New Yorker has been craving for years in L.A.," 
says Jenna Ushkowitz, one of many Glee and American Crime Story stars, including Jonathan Groff, Chord Overstreet, Naya Rivera, Matthew Morrison and Kevin McHale, who have dropped in. Adds Superstore actor Ben Feldman: "It's simultaneously ridiculously fresh and a total throwback: It's as if an old Broadway piano bar went on a nasty drug binge and woke up with a face tattoo but, like, in the best way." Jon Hamm, Emma Stone, Amber Heard, Hailee Steinfeld, Ricky Martin, Alexander Skarsgard, Michelle Monaghan, Nick Kroll and Aaron Paul also have swung by, and Maggie and Jake Gyllenhaal have crowded around Criss' own Yamaha piano to sing along to Fun Home's "Ring of Keys." (For the record, Ryan Murphy has not been in yet; Criss feels "he has more important things to do.")

The 31-year-old actor jokes that he's "only 
the piano player" and gives credit to Swier for the execution of concept, which features singing bartenders and bouncers. "The end result is musicology meets mixology, so you're getting the fun, rowdy vibe with interesting cocktails you won't get anywhere else," she says. Self-described "numbers guy" Massare says he knew instantly that "this was a winner" when the duo approached him over dinner (and confesses that he is waiting for Tom Waits to come by).

. . . . The former Beauty Bar space on Cahuenga Boulevard, with a covert back-alley entrance, is a "juxtaposition of an elegant, upscale atmosphere and a gritty, '80s-glam dive bar," says Swier, with pink glitter, Art Deco lighting, chain curtains and "lots of inappropriate neon," plus art commissioned from local artist Pasco. "There are few things I enjoy doing more than plying Winter, the singing bartender, for filthy martinis before begging her to sing Whitney Houston," says Zelda Williams, an actress and Robin Williams' daughter, who hosts bimonthly nights called Bis and Dolls; there is Monday's Queer Cabaret as well as a Ryes and Shine bottomless brunch (without the brunch) on Sundays.

Through it all, the biggest draw 
is the group singing, says Criss: "It really is infectious, the sort of intoxication you feel from being around" the vibe. Adds Swier: "What I love most is when people walk in off the street, 
not knowing what they've ventured into, and 
they let the ABBA wash over them."
