The new year started off right at Whole Foods, which is one of our favorite places to play.
We got to ham it up in our usual spot by the deli (get it ~ ham it up...at the deli), but they've added some items since the last time we were there. One of those items would be dried mushrooms. There was either a cooking show on that morning that aired an amazing recipe calling for dried mushrooms or people were laboring under the illusion that these were magic mushrooms. Oh, I crack my self up....illusion...magic mushrooms. That one I wasn't even trying for. Anyway, I digress. There had to have been at least 4 people who were not leaving without some of those mushrooms. And of course, they had to have them the second after we started setting up. One guy waited to make his way to the shrooms after we were set up and did a delicate balancing act over Mudcat's foot board. And there was a woman who at first appeared to be watching us after we started playing, but her attention kept going to those stinkin' mushrooms. Since we never moved so that she could swoop in and snag up a carton, she eventually moved on.
There were a lot of familiar faces, including Ilene, our "Scotch and Soda" gal.
And lots of little kids who either love us or hate us. It's pretty funny that the ones who can't talk yet can sure get those feelings across. Fortunately, more of them liked us than not. Some were even dancing and clapping, but doing it all shy-like in between their parents or while hiding behind them.
Super duper good to see Betty again! So glad that you could make it out.
Well, that's about it for this gig. Tune in after the 25th when we'll be at the Whole Foods in Beachwood, or better yet just come out there for the 5x7. It's a sampling of five different food items and five different wines for $5.00 from 5:00 - 7:00pm. Not a bad deal at all. Plus you can do your grocery shopping while you snack and drink.
