The Bouncer

This a little bit random. My buddy Scott - whose Random Thoughts blog (unfortunately), like quite a few of those listed in the Blog-O-Rama sidebar, appears to be cryogenically frozen (see what’s going to happen is, we’re going to find a cure for cancer and then we’re gonna thaw out the Duke and he’s gonna be pretty pissed off - you know why?) - is going to be in town (this town) for a few days this week because a turkey dinner apparently tastes better when you drive several hundred miles to eat it. No...I’m kidding. He’s coming home for Thanksgiving, but I have no idea if turkey tastes better if you spend a long time driving to go eat it.

And even though we almost never do this when Scott comes home for holidays, I thought it might be fun to go to the Slippery Noodle one of the nights he’s here - so I loaded up their website today and checked the band schedule to see if any of the bands playing while Scott will be in town are bands that we’ve listened to before and enjoyed. But then the really big print at the bottom of the page caught my eye:

11/25 • Roast of Mr. Marty Bacon (Leaving for LA after 16 years)

Well, now what are the chances, right? They have a roast for Marty, who will be saying fare thee well to the Noodle, the same week that Scott rolls into town? I'm not going to explain it any further, because it would just take too long and wouldn't be very interesting for most of you, anyway. I'll simply leave it at that and let the one person other than Scott and myself who might be amused by it - Steve - enjoy the nostalgia and the memories.

Oh, and it turns out that there will be some interesting music this week at the Noodle, apart from the usual suspects. Chris Shaffer - of The Why Store - is playing Monday night, with Benito DiBartoli, one of the other guys in the current version of The Why Store.
