The Grand Central Band @ Toby Keith's I Love This Bar

Happy Monday! No need to dwell, we all despise most Mondays, with the exception of Labor Day and Memorial day. Best to get on with it I suppose...

On Saturday night, Hunter and I went to watch a friend's cousin's band play at Toby Keith's new restaurant and bar, known as "I Love This Bar" due to Toby's hit song with a title of the same name. Y'all! (and PS I cannot even begin to think of a better time to use this phrase) This place is super cool. Excellent open concept and layout, yummy/quality food, and an overall ambiance that promotes a honky tonkin good time.

The band is The Grand Central and they were on point. They did great covers of old and new songs and had everyone hopping around both on foot and bouncing in their chairs to the sounds. Hunter took an awesome shot of them in all their glory:


We got to the place a little earlier than when the show was starting, so we grabbed a booth and munched on some goodies.


The second picture would be me waiting happily for the mmm mmm mmm good food we were about to give a try.

I went with an appetizer as my meal, which did not disappoint. I give you, fried Macaroni and Cheese served over a tomato/basil/cream sauce:


We had a wonderfully fun time so I very much recommend boot scootin' on over if you find yourself visiting the International Drive area of Orlando. Also, if you get the chance to see The Grand Central play live, do it. You won't be sad.

Now tell me, what did you do with your weekend days?

Until we meet again,
M

My dear, If at first you don't succeed, throw on another accessory & try, try again

Off to try, try again!

A man is not very tired. He is exhausted

I know. This is days after the initial blow of learning that this wonderful human being's life ended. What in the world. Talk about a cherished existence. The man my parents still rave about because of his stand up comedy, the man who forever changed the way I say "Hellloooooo" in an older British woman's voice, this great giant. How sad. I feel for the fact that Robin hit a level from which he could not rise. Depression, anxiety, stress are awful beasts.

I do not believe in the mentality, that someone who takes their life is selfish. Sure, it's not the kindest thing to leave behind for loved ones to cope with, but if something has it's grasp on a person, well, choices are made. It is devastating that there is still so much stigma for diseases like depression and anxiety. What?! Get the hell out of here with that mess. I would not wish it upon the biggest naysayer even to prove a point. So, to that, I say screw the assholes saying derogatory …

Today is a good day, my friends. Today means at the 6 o'clock hour I shall enter a four day weekend. Full of what, you ask? So far on the agenda is:

-trying out a very new and deliciously enticing restaurant known as Cooper's Hawk and Winery;
-finishing the rest of season 5 and all of season 6 for Sons of Anarchy-which is phenom BTW;
-and enjoying the beautiful weather we are projected to experience, with extra SPF of course.

I like to call this agenda a little something known as living the American dream indeed.

Oh and I'll be toting around my newly obtained Kate Spades. Surprise 75% off sale, what? I CANNOT wait for the tote! I'll give you a hint until I can show the new ol'gal off #baconeggandcheeseplease :):)

Any how, I have to go shopping now ( Love a good Pretty Woman reference) get to finishing my day so the fun can begin. Hope everyone has a safe, fun, relaxing good time. Or go wild and have to retrace events to determine how good it really was. Ju…
