EDGE Publications Announces EDGE Fridays at Club Café

For Immediate Release Jan 5, 2005

Boston, MA - EDGE Publications, Inc. today announced the creation of "EDGE Fridays" at one of Boston’s most popular Gay/Lesbian bars, Club Café. The weekly event will host a variety of free promotional parties highlighting music, film and theatre events happening in and around Boston.

"We launched a few parties last year," explained Arts & Entertainment Editor Robert Nesti. "They resulted in capacity crowds at the bar. Our readers have really responded to events where they can explore some of the diverse cultural and entertainment options in the city, plus receive free tickets and merchandise."

Club Café, at 209 Columbus Avenue in Boston, has three bars and a full-service dining room called "Restaurant 209," where southwest style and flavors meet New England cuisine. EDGE Fridays will be hosted in the popular back bar from 9:00pm to midnight each Friday night.

"We’ve had a terrific experience planning this with Club Café," said David Foucher, EDGE’s Publisher. "We’re excited to expand our community into a nightlife event of our own."

The company’s flagship portal, EDGEboston.com, is already the most popular Gay/Lesbian website of any type in New England, registering on the list of the country’s top websites according to Amazon.com’s Alexa Traffic Rank. It has a dedicated readership of 22,000 individuals and is growing weekly.

The portal delivers eight channels to its readers, including daily local/national news, arts & entertainment, health & fitness, style, sports and travel. A community channel provides additional local coverage of nightlife, shopping, lodging, dining, events calendar, and more.

The publication is available at http://www.edgeboston.com.
