image by flickr user (nutmeg)Well, the Oscars are over and there are a few friends of Middle Earth who should be pretty happy right about now.  Celebrate (or not) and at least have a nice pint of brew and possibly something to nosh on at The Hobbit Cafe, 2243 Richmond Avenue. See you there around 8 PM.

Monday, 21 February 2011: Guitar Man cupcakes at the Petrol Station

Posted by mike | Meetings | Posted on February 21st, 2011

On this day in 1967, Elvis Presley began recording the soundtrack to the movie Clambake.  The first track on that album was a cover of Jerry Reed‘s “Guitar Man.” On this date in 1981, a remix of The King’s version of the song hit #43 on the UK charts;  Jerry Reed was 43 at the time.  Coincidence?  I think not.  It just gives you goosebumps, doesn’t it?

Monday, 7 February 2011: Cold-Forged Beer at Anvil

Posted by mike | Meetings | Posted on February 7th, 2011

It’s not going to be as cold tonight as it was last Thursday night, but even I wouldn’t call it “warm.”  Stop by Anvil Bar and Refuge, 1424 Westheimer, at 8 PM, for a cold beer or cocktail anyway.  Park in one of their lots or watch out for No Parking zones.
