About Us Who is TueNight?
It seems like five minutes ago we were running around in our cut-offs listening to a cassette tape of Prince’s 1999. We were drinking beer, playing Bar Quiz with that cute guy, and then going back to the newspaper to slog away on a story until 2.a.m. We were moving to a shiny new city, becoming a manager, able to afford a DVF wrap dress and the occasional Manhattan-priced martini.
We worked hard. We succeeded. We moved. We got married. We stayed single. We had kids, or we chose not to, or maybe we actually forgot to have kids. Oops.
Some things have settled (and I do mean settled) and some things have simply changed… or evolved.
If we have a “free” night, we’d usually rather cuddle up and binge on Breaking Bad than go out. But ask us next week, and we might still be up for that martini. We’re running families and businesses, traveling to New Orleans for the weekend, volunteering at a local school, catching up with friends on social media, figuring out how to get the better of our finances, our health, our loves.
Did I mention, we’re starting a brand new relationship at 46? (He makes furniture.)
We don’t have a roadmap, but we’re looking to invent our own.
We are still living life the way it’s supposed to be lived.
And, bonus! We have perspective.
Our run hasn’t ended yet my friends. In fact, it’s just beginning.
Monday is the start of the work week. Wednesday is “hump day” (or help-me-with-my-math problems night). Thursday and Fridays are for young singles who still have the chutzpah to leave home for dates and dancing (wow that sounded like I’m 90, anyhoo…). Weekends are for families, kids and chores.
But TueNight is your night.
It’s a quiet minute to steal a conversation with your Mom. It’s an easy night for a drink with a friend. It’s the night you have your “literary smut” bookclub. It’s a night to focus on you. You send out that resume, you plant seeds in your community garden, or maybe you actually work a night shift. But the goal of TueNight is to give you a few minutes to explore where you’ve been and consider where you want to go next.
Here’s what we’re fixing to do: We’ll share stories about the things that matter to us now, offer well-honed life hacks, take you to the frontline of dating in your 40s,, suggest books and music we know you’ll dig, and tales of people who found the courage to “come out” and be themselves. Even at 46, it’s harder than you think.
We want to talk to you directly. With zero BS. We want to start conversations. We want to take a wee bit of your Tuesday Night to have a frickin’ blast.
So, essentially, we’ll be sharing our stories and listening to yours.
We’re making something together.
Join us TueNight.
