Received a thoughtful text from a dear friend whom I used to see on a daily basis (throughout my 20s) and now haven’t had the chance to see in over 5 years. He spoke of mid-west thunderstorms, Grain Belt Premium and South Minneapolis duplex porches… Here’s to wonderful memories.Image

which then had me craving a CC Burger at the CC Tap…


Thanks for the walk down memory lane, my dear friend Scott!



You…do…something, to me…

I would really like to post my favorites from 2011, but I haven’t taken time to think about what those are.

So, in the interim, I give you one of my favorite places…from NYE 1999.

Liberty Hall, Lawrence, KS

I fell in love here.

Also, I saw Hadacol that night, ate cheese balls and rang in the year 2000 in the back of a van with the entire band (and Jim Bradt and Mark Downey).
