St. Louis Slim and Pappy Van Winkle
Nothing of circumstance happened this weekend so I’m skipping it. Work was a bit of a downer today as it has been with increasing frequency of late. When I got home I learned that the DVD drive I ordered for my new toy was shipped to the wrong address, an address which was listed on my ebay account and appeared as my Paypal confirmed address in the email receipt even though it certainly is not. It sucks not only because I’ll likely have to pay the inflated shipping charges twice but I’m still unable to play with my new gadget.After work while I was at the grocery store with Dad I got a call from Patrick who told me he and a couple people were going out to Frenchman sometime tonight. Going out on Monday night is a bit odd but it’s David’s 21st birthday. At ten I had to call him because I hadn’t heard what, if anything was going on. I got a cab downtown and arrived at d.b.a. at about 10:45. Andrey, David and Patrick were already out and about and got there not long after I did. Some local act I’d never heard of called St. Louis Slim was playing. I didn’t recognize the band leader but there were a few familiar musicians in the band I’ve seen play with other acts. I had my good camera with me by request this evening which became a primary source of amusement after we found a place to sit.After a few rounds and perhaps an hour and a half, designated driver Andrey drove us back to his place after stopping at Rally’s for some much needed solid food. While we were there, Andrey showed us his model car collection he was parting with through Craigslist. I called at cab at about 2:15 and got home not long before three.
