As Nicki Minaj so eloquently puts it “I do anything that you say, anything cause you da Boss…you da Boss Man.”

Come give and receive stories. Once again at Balliceaux we will be sharing tales – this time about horrible bosses, or work, or inspiring types who are entitled the name…Boss.

Door opens at 6:30, stories start ’round 7:30. Fill your bellies and get a taste of life with Secretly Y’all.

Yours,
Lainie, Colin, and Kathleen
