Tip of the hat/wag of the finger 12/3/07

God I wish the writers strike would reach a happy conclusion quickly -- I am so missing my daily shots of Stewart and Colbert! The pre-election season is gray and colorless without them..

Anyways, I am fond of Stephen’s “Tip of the hat/Wag of the finger” feature and have decided to steal it for myself.

A Tip of the Hat
... to Dorados for bringing back Sunday Jam Night back to SPI. Many area clubs have attempted this with varying degrees of success, though perhaps none more so than Las Ventanas (at the Bahia Mar) and that was so many years ago I am guessing that few current residents will admit to remembering it....

At any rate, I burrowed my way out of my cocoon last night and had a wonderful time listening to Third Coast (Jack Hartwell, Loose Reed and Capt. Alan Stewart) with guest performer Nancy Cook sitting in. Got to chat with some folks I hadn’t seen in a while and enjoyed some of the fancy Belgian beer (and German chocolate cheesecake!) left over from the special beer tasting meal Leah hosted Friday night. It was a lot of fun and I would encourage more folks to come out and support Dorados’ efforts to encourage local musicians. (Hey Strummers -- what do you think??!!)

A Wag of the Finger
... to whomever designed the beach walkover at access #16 for creating a new lake -- and rendering the new beach walkover utterly useless for days -- every time we get rain. I was under the impression that the parking lot was supposed to be raised as part of this project and maybe that will be discussed at Wednesday’s BOA meeting as there appears to be a mention of it on the agenda. Here is what it looked like this morning:
