We hope you guys are having an absolutely awesome holiday weekend. Before we go and eat our funnel cake and gulp our beer for the rest of the weekend, we wanted to leave you with one more post about the general terrific-ness of Decatur.
Last Monday Cath and I went to Eddie's for open mic night. Oh no no no, we don't sing! We wouldn't even submit our most hated enemies to that. But we do enjoy listening to talented locals belting it out.
Now Eddie's you have to understand, isn't your average bar-that-has-an-amateur's-night. It's where John Mayer got his start and Shawn Mullins likes to play. We're also home to Jennifer Nettles of Sugarland (and she also happened to go our alma mater), and the Indigo Girls.
On Monday no one well-known took the stage, but the talent just blew us away. Next time you are sitting at home with nothing to do on Monday night, give us a call and we'll meet up at Eddie's. You'll see what we mean.
Here are those necklaces again, and the outfit I wore to Eddie's below. Not a very Decatur outfit- kind of more Cobra Snake. It might need a little tweaking.
Happy Weekend, Everyone! Eat good. Be good.
