TM after after party

Texas Monthly had Xmas party last night. This is what I found by the coffee this morning. Rough morning I guess for some.


Euro Beer #26: Continental

In the fall of 2007 my wife and I traveled through Europe for 10 weeks. We ate a lot of food and drank of a lot of beer (and wine). Not enough food, not enough beer. In Paris:

We were frustrated and a bit tired (too much touristing). We did not want to go back to our host’s apartment yet. We decided to get a drink before heading back. Easier said than done. I hate looking for a bar in an unfamiliar country . . . it’s the worst. We settled at the Continental and in the end it was ok, I guess. I have no idea where it is, but don’t worry, there are better places in Paris to get a beer. I had a Kronenburg, which was refreshing. Sofia had a red wine, not a good choice. Always get bottled beer in weird bars.

We left happier.

For more euro foodage and drinkage, go here.

Sightseeing, look at that bird. What a capture!



This is so amazing

I love FVGAZI!

In 2002, I drove to New Orleans from MS to see them. Then, I did not know it would be their last (maybe) tour. I was by myself, but it was my fault. I bought two tickets. One was for Bill, but I dumbly offered it to another friend because he was a big fan of Fugazi, where Bill was just a casual listener. Bill took this surprisingly well (I think). Well, my other friend ditched me. Whatever, I was able to sell the ticket in line. But, I did have to drive by myself. I remember I had turned in a paper that day and the night before I stayed up late finishing it. I was dead beat, falling asleep on the drive. I had to pull over and take a nap half way through the drive. The ride back to MS was no problem, fully amped from the amazing show. That performance is available for download.



Been watching the Pearl Jam 20 Documentary. It is good.
