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.

Grilled cheese and a concert

(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?
