New York...Here I Come

After work today I will be heading to NYC for the weekend. Saturday, my friend Rachel will be showing off her artwork in NY. I added a link to her website on the right side of the page. Then that night I am going to see Galactic with Seth. I have not seen this band for a couple of years, so I am excited to catch them again. Finally on Sunday, I will be meeting up with Joseph for lunch and a quick tour of Brooklyn. It should be a great visit. Plans are already in the works to spend New Years in NYC. I think the Black Crowes are playing Madison Square Gardens that weekend.

This past week has been very busy. I helped make Thanksgiving baskets last night for the needy. It was more a social thing, but the little bit of work we did and the money that was raised should help a lot of people. On Wednesday I checked out a new venue, Rams Head Live. I saw Gavin Rossdale's (former lead singer of Bush) new band, Institute. They were great! hardly anyone was there, so I got great pics and even a little bit of Gavin's sweat from his hair as he shook his head during a few tunes. He performed Everything Zin and Machine Head from the classic Sixteen Stone album (I used to be a HUGE Bush fan).

Monday and Tuesday were filled with family. I haven't been to this big of a family dinner in at least two years. I had my Aunt and Uncle from Mobile visiting with their daughters and one of their grandchildren. Then my cousins from VA were all in attendance. I had never met the two younger boys. Jacob's son is very outgoing and is working on his basketball skills. Leslie's son, Michael, was exhausted from spending the entire day driving down from VT. However, he was a trooper and made it through a wonderful meal and several pictures. After six years in CO without family, it is wonderful to be suddenly surrounded.
