Hello, summer. I think you're officially here now, and I'm sure glad to see you.
Yesterday afternoon, Nicole and I headed out to see our good friend Corey play a set at The Jetty. It's a dock bar/restaurant just a quick hour drive from DC. And possibly my new favorite place to go watch Corey's shows. It's indoor/outdoor with a huge bar and attached dock. You can literally dock your boat at the restaurant. I'm in love with this concept. Only problem being, I don't own a boat. Nor do I know anyone who owns a boat.
Now accepting applications for friends with boats.
For the record, I don't actually prefer fruit in my beer. But they just kept brining me oranges.
After Corey's set, we got a table ont he dock and ordered some food. I haven't done crabs like this since I was a little kid. It is a hell of a lot of work to get the meat out of those spiky shells, but there is something very rewarding about pounding your food with a wooden mallet.
The afternoon kind of got away from us, and by the time we got in the car to head back to DC it was sunset. We were just on the edge of the Bay Bridge when the sun dropped below the horizon. Beautiful day on the water, and if I didn't have so much d@mn student loan debt, I'd be boat shopping right now.
