Thoughts About Hickory, NC Area

Just got back from my stepsister’s wedding in Lincolnton, NC, and wanted to share some thoughts about the experience:

1.  Sweet Tea isn’t as good without a lemon.

2.  Can a guy get a vegetable with at least some of it’s nutritional value left in tact?

3.  There is no such statement as “too many barbecue places.”

4.  Humidity!  My skin looks great now!

5.  Speaking in the accent I heard makes everything infinitely better and more palatable, no matter how bad the news.

6.  Nobody I met knew where Oregon was - most mistook it for Ohio. 

I was bummed I didn’t get a chance to get to Asheville, as I feel like it would’ve given me a whole different picture than what I saw.  It was a beautiful landscape, though (although there’s some consistency to the landscape of the South in general) and we got caught in a GINORMOUS thunderstorm.  My girlfriend started to freak out, but I just kept reminding her that this was part of the experience…

These are the nights I live for.

So a few of my friends and I decided to go to the downtown square tonight by this popular restaurant/bar called The Tap Room and have an acoustic jam session. I was on the acoustic bass, and my 3 other friends were on acoustic guitars (and two of them are fantastic singers). It was pretty freaking cold out there, but we played for about an hour and a half. We just wanted to go out and have some fun with street performance on a casual friday night, but apparently people thought we were worth while. In an hour and a half we made $58 in tips. Fifty-eight dollars for just sitting outside in a downtown square jamming/soloing to random chord progessions. We split the cash between us four and ended up making $14 each (with $2 left over), which beats the hell out of minimum wage and an actual job. We had such a fun time performing, and the people/kids that gave us compliments reminded me of when I played in my freshman-year cover band. There is no greater feeling than playing music in front of complete strangers.

Event Horizon and Omega Point from Olde Hickory Brewing, North Carolina. The Event Horizon – is an annual release. They barrel age an imperial stout in oak bourbon barrels, from several bourbon varieties. Omega Point is the 20th Anniversary Barleywine that has been aged in a variety of bourbon barrels for 7 years, then blended. I love the new label art BTW. #beerlover #craftbeer #craftbeerporn #beerporn #beergasm #beerfest #instabeer #beerstagram #beergeek #beersnob #beertography #craftbeernotcrapbeer #drinklocal #beerlife #stout #craftbeernotcrapbeer #beernerd #russianimperialstout #oldehickory #eventhorizon #omegapoint
