Elie Wiesel + Drake = Huh?

This is probably the first time Canadian rapper Drake and Nobel Laureate writer Elie Wiesel have ever been mentioned in the same blog post, so consider it a treat: these two exciting guests chose the same week to visit our humble Middletown.

Drake, who played a show in Wallingford Thursday night, apparently had his after party at The Shadow Room on Main Street. We’re a few days late on the Middletown gossip, but the Middletown Eye has the details in a post appropriately titled “If You Happened To See Someone Who Looked Like Drake Last Night On Main Street”:

Drake arrived at midnight, and the party, open to the public, had the crowd dancing to Drake’s personal DJ until 3 a.m.

With a heads-up from club owner Nicholas Caraci, Middletown and State Police were positioned outside the club. Caraci indicated that there was no trouble at the club.  The door was supervised by a Middletown fire marshall, and the event was supervised by four state troopers and about a dozen Middletown Police patrol cars.

Nicely done, Shadow Room.  Note, too, that our friends at the Middletown Eye unexpectedly put up an “official endorsement” from Wesleying Staff (top right), from an email thanking them for their reporting. Awww. Wesleying doesn’t have an official endorsement slot, but rest assured: if we did, it would probably express how flattered we are that Middletown Eye cares about us enough to value our official endorsement.

Woah. Meta.

    umm… you managed to completely neglect any info about Elie Weisel’s talk tonight, but congratulations on being featured in the Middletown Eye!

    Now maybe just actually report on the Nobel Laureate and Holocaust Survivor who’s speaking in under 3 hours here…
