Subject: WV SPAT Date: 1 Sep 2002 12:35:13 -0700 From: email@example.com (Tyler D.) Newsgroups: alt.fan.tom-servo I was a little late, but I made it. The restaurant was a little hard to find, and there some weirdness with the address...and parking was tough to come by. Thanks to cell phones, we finally met up about 15 after five. We were happily introduced (John's gf Lisa is very sweet), and it all went very well. Bessie could not come for personal reasons, and she was greatly missed. I don't have the photos (John will post them at some point), but rest assured that we had a great time at had a great meal at the (Alpha) Rio Grande (with vegetarian menu selections). I enjoyed a very nice bottle of Negro Modelo (just one) and a TON of vegetarian fajitas. We also had fried (?) ice cream True to form, John made sure that beano was on hand to aid our digestion. After that we went to see that huge, redneck car accident called the Sternwheel Regatta (Blarg has a T-shirt). We chose not to do any of the fun things they had on hand (bungee swing-type things, climbing walls, etc.) because we ATE SO DAMNED MUCH. God, that was good food. We realized that all three of us like the same exact CDs at one point when we were listening to this horrible cover band play a country version of "Funky, Cold Medina" by Tone Loc. I would have been really embarassed (since I live here), but dumb redneck shenanigans like that are just too fscking funny. I'm used to it. John counted all the mullets (what was the final total on that??), and I made a mental note of how many people were so obese that they needed those little scooter seats. We found a gorgeous spot right by the Kanawha River were all the boats (hundreds) were and took some photos. All too soon, it was time for me to go back and do my gig (our best yet, with a great crowd) and time for John and Lisa to get back in the car and return to Morgantown. That's long drive, and I really appreciated them going to all that effort just run into little old me (I bought dinner to try and offset that a bit, but they really went out of their way to make it all happen). It was a great little spat, and hope to do another one in Morgantown at some point, if anyone is interested in that trip from D.C... Tyler
