What a great party! Chuck’s 50th Birthday Party- Charlie Fest – Friends, Food, Music and Michigan Beer. Laith Al-Saadi provided music at SideTrack, Ypsi Mi
I know what you are thinking, what are you two doing out a Dark Horse Brewing in marvelous Marshall, Michigan for a barbeque contest? You guys don’t eat ribs and brisket! Your vegan! Well, you are right, we don’t partake in BBQ meats, but its a party at Dark Horse and we were out and about, so there you go! Dark Horse was also releasing ‘Smells Like A Safety Meeting’ which is a wonderful pale ale with a hoptastic hoppy aroma, so that helped to bring us over for a visit.
I read online that ‘The Muggs’ were going to be playing in Ypsilanti, Michigan at a cool little place called Woodruff’s last Friday night (April 11, 2014) and that just so happened to be my birthday. I figured it was divine intervention and that I needed to go check out the show. What I didn’t know was that what was really happening at Woodruff’s was FUZZ FEST!! A three day rock and roll extravaganza featuring 33 Michigan bands on two stages!
Everyone enjoys a little foolishness after a long, cold Michigan winter! Ann Arbor’s Festifools Event on April 6 was perfect! Great crowd, beautiful puppets…
Roller Derby is alive and well in Michigan! We had a great time at A2D2’s season opener. We got great pictures and renewed respect for the sport.
It was Stratocaster nirvana at the fabulous Fox Theater in Detroit, Michigan on Thursday April 3, 2014 as some of the best guitar players in the world paid homage to probably the most influential rock musician; Jimi Hendrix.
I love Frank’s Red Hot Sweet Chili Sauce, Brussels Sprouts and squash! When you combine all three it is magic!
Imagine the tenacity and determination of the Norse sailors of old who braved unfathomable oceans to seek out their dreams, no matter the cost. Now fast forward to Tuesday, March 11, 2014 with four hard working metal bands traveling across North America. This is The Absence tour with support from Infernaeon, From The Embrace, and The Mirage Theory.
Fourteen reasons to attend the Southern Michigan Winter Beer Festival! New brews, creative food, BEARDS galore, lively cornhole games, Music are just a few
Great beer, SUN and fun at the 2014 Annual Michigan Winter Beer Festival: 89 Breweries, 789 beers and lots of new breweries. It did not disappoint.
No seriously, does it get any better when you get to groove like a penguin in bondage at the Michigan Theater in Ann Arbor, Michigan with the Zappa Plays Zappa band? On Wednesday (2/19/2014), we got treated to Zappa Plays Zappa performing the entire “Roxy & Elsewhere” album by Frank Zappa & The Mothers. This is the 40th anniversary of the album release and Zappa Plays Zappa is taking it out to audiences across the country.
Eric and Evan met us at the door and started to walk us through the process of taking unwanted trees (harvested by Evan’s tree service company – Arbor Man) and turning them into usable lumber and finished wood products. Tree Purposed Detroit is unique in that they combine all aspects of lumber production and woodworking under one roof. Pretty cool!! These are certainly some ingenious and hard working fellas!
Chuck’s Almost Famous Experience! Covering shows, interviewing musicians, and writing album reviews. He may not be 15 but he is still having a good time!
Mingling with naughty snow sculptures while drinking one-of-a-kind Dark Horse beer in the Beer Garten. It doesn’t get much better! Lots of great pictures.
