A little night music

Boys' Night Out turned into Double Date Night. I asked collinsmom if she'd like to go to the Hofbräuhaus, and she jumped at the chance. After we arrived in Newport, KY, I called that_guy_zach to tell him we were on the scene. He said that his girlfriend, Rachel, had asked to come, too. They joined us soon after.

So we spent an enjoyable evening stuffing ourselves with Kassler Rippchen and listening to the guy on the accordion, who got progressively stranger as the evening wore on. People kept buying him shots of Jägermeister. In thanking the crowd, he said, "The more of these you drink, the better I sound and look; the more of these I drink, the less I care how I sound and look."

We talked overseas travel, church politics, book editing, languages, college, old friends . . . It was great. Neither collinsmom nor I could remember the last time we just spontaneously dropped everything to go somewhere together like that.
