Fun Fest

Whew! What a day yesterday was!! I had gotten up early to work on some stuff for work, so when lunch time rolled around I was ready to have some FUN. My buddy, Justin, was in town from Chicago with his younger brother, Seth, so I met them out at Sportman’s Grill so I could eat lunch…and enjoy the bloody mary bar. I do lurve me a bloody mary bar…

After a few jokes, some fish and chips, and random catching up, I thought we might want to do something. Country Music Hall of Fame? No. Frist Center? No. Bowling? Big yes. Ok, I have not gone bowling in, hm, 10 years or more…why this struck the Gernot brothers as the perfect thing to do in Nashville is beyond me. But off we went to Pla-More Lanes near my work. Awesome, I was wearing boots…so when I put on the rental shoes I had super groovy white tube socks sticking out. Sweet. Picks to follow – my camera needed recharging and I didn’t take any photos during our bowling adventure, but Justizzle did.

Justin and Seth are good Ohioans…and that means they are killer bowlers. I am not so good. Seth was killin’ it with easily over 130 every game…me, after three games I think I might have totalled just a smidge more than that! ๐Ÿ˜€ Hilarious. I started bowling with a 13 pound ball…so after just a few frames my arm was exhausted! When I switched to a much lighter ball it FLEW down the lane – I might as well have thrown it overhand. Poor lane got a work out. HA HA HA! As we were packing up to leave, I got a text from another friend, Mason. They wanted to meet up at Yazoo Brewery. SWEET! So we bopped over there, or tried.

I’d never gone to the Yazoo tap room, so I wasn’t really sure where it was located. I called 411, but Yazoo never picked up the phone. We stopped at Judge Beans BBQ for directions, no one there knew…We finally pulled up a laaaaaaaaaame map on Justin’s blackberry and finally found the place. Yummo! Yazoo makes a mean Hefeweisen, but I really lurve their rye hefe called “Roggen”. Should have gotten a growler.

Couple of pints later, Justin and Seth go to meet up with a mutual friend of ours and I head out to Robert’s with Mason and his wife Jen. Mason wanted to grab a cab, so we park back at Judge Bean’s and call one. We waited for AN HOUR. Unfortch, the Detroit Redwings were in town playing the Preds, and it was raining, so there were no cabs to be had. Mason finally flagged down some dude from Oklahoma who offered us a ride the 6 blocks to Roberts. Niiiiiiiice. Hitching. But before we left, I snapped this picture of AutoVaughn doing a sound check across the street at 12th & Porter. Check 1, 2, 1, 2.

Mason, Jen and I hang out at Robert’s, but then I left to head back to 12th & Porter for the AutoVaughn gig. It was pouring rain, the Preds game had just let out and downtown was packed! I couldn’t get a cab to save my life! So, for some stupid reason, I decided to hoof it. MORON. Dumb, dumb, dumb. Luckily, Ed, Evan, Vecci and…the surprise guest of the evening, MITCH, happened past on their way to 12th & Porter. WOOT! Gimme a ride, boys!

We finally made it, parked and went in. I love this venue and the band didn’t disappoint. I didn’t catch the opening acts (like I ever do… ๐Ÿ˜€ ), but AutoVaughn totally rocked. Check my vid – I hope it isn’t too tinny. The only bummer was this: I forgot my earplugs. Boo. Oh well! Great day, great show!
