Long Weekend in Escondido California

We launched our California Desert Vacation with a long weekend in Escondido, California. We arrived with a list of area attractions including museums, wine, a zoo, and a few breweries. As we checked them off the list, we found a few surprises.

Zappa Plays Zappa Taking Roxy to Ann Arbor

Zappa Plays Zappa Taking Roxy to Ann Arbor

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.

A Visit with Tree Purposed Detroit

A Visit with Tree Purposed Detroit

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!

Ann Arbor’s Midnight Madness 2013

Ann Arbor’s Midnight Madness 2013

As far as I’m concerned, my holiday season kicks-in with Ann Arbor’s Midnight Madness event. This event is a nice sampling of Ann Arbor, Michigan–shopping, merrymaking, bar hopping and fun all rolled into one event. This year’s event didn’t disappoint.

Clutch – Putting Detroit Into Gear!

Clutch – Putting Detroit Into Gear!

Live music rocks!  No shit, you may be thinking.  What I mean is that hearing a tune live (or recorded live) cranks up the energy level a few notches.  Remember when you heard “Parasite” by Kiss on “Hotter Than Hell”?  Now, remember listing to that same tune on “Alive!”   It kicked even more ass!

Chuck, what does this have to do with seeing Clutch (with special guests The Sword, and American Sharks) at the Fillmore last Saturday in dazzling Detroit?
