The youth gets together his materials to build a bridge to the moon, or, perchance, a palace or temple on the earth, and, at length, the middle-aged man concludes to build a woodshed with them.
~ Henry David Thoreau
(087: Grilled cheese and goldfish.)
M and I went to Akron last night for another of the Lock 3 concerts. Last night Marcia Ball played at Lock 3. She rocked. The turnout, however, did not. I was surprised at the poor showing. I imagine that is due to lack of good advertising. Even Marcia Ball commented that this might be a record breaker for the least attended concert of hers in two years.
It was a nice evening. We started by meeting a friend at our favorite bar where we had a couple of beers and then walked over to the Lockview Restaurant & Bar where we partook of scrumptious gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches.
And, for M and I, some homemade tomato soup.
As tempting as it was, we did not have dessert:
After dinner our friend left us (she had to be up early this morning) and we walked over to Lock 3 where Ruthie Foster opened for Marcia Ball. The music was excellent. M and I even did some dancing (kind of a rare occurrance for us but I’m hoping it’s something that will happen more frequently).
Good company, good beer, good food, and good music. What more could ya ask for?
