Local Comedy Clubs

by on Sep.29, 2012, under Fun Stuff, Life, Movies, TV

One of the attractions of living in a city is that most cities have some sort of comedy club for local entertainment. Of course, the major metropolitan areas may have several comedy clubs, and on occasion the more proper theaters may book a top shelf comedian for a two or three night special performance when they are between the longer running plays and concert series.

The comedy club in Nashville is called Zanies and they do a pretty good job of pulling in nationally known comedians. I have seen several top acts from TV shows and movies there over the years, but haven’t been going lately.Since I a single, I am careful about where I go at night and am very cautious about where can I park safely and have a good chance of getting to my car and heading home without any incidents. The Zanies is in a shady part of town and their parking lot is way too small for the number of cars. If you are not there at least an hour before the show you have little chance of parking in their lot, and if there are two shows and you are trying to attend the second show, finding parking in the lot is practically impossible.

The shows are good, the drinks are good, the food is so-so and the parking is crap. I would love to see the relocate and be in a nicer and safer neighborhood. And a place with plenty of off street free parking would bring me to the club many times in a year.

Bluegrass for Beginners

by on May.16, 2012, under Fun Stuff, Music, Videos

Do you know anything about bluegrass music? I don'[t know much and don’t usually have the opportunity to hear it. But last week I had to go to a show with customers and it turns out the band at the club where we met up plays bluegrass music.

At first I thought it would be boring because I didn’t think I knew any of the songs they were playing. Then I listened to a few of the songs and I was surprised that I actually knew the words to most of the songs. So I guess I know about bluegrass than I though I did.

Now I want to learn more about bluegrass music. I hope there is a video on Youtube or some books at Amazon that deal with bluegrass for beginners. I want to learn and hear more – its good stuff.

Comedy Club

by on Dec.01, 2011, under Fun Stuff

Most big cities have at least one comedy club where you can go any weekend and have some laughs. The comedy club here is called Zanies. They have some great comics – guys that you’ve actually heard of that are on TV and in comedy shows. They must tour all over the country and end up in a different city each weekend. What a hard life that must be – always in a different place and never home on weekends. But I bet they have a lot of fun, too.

Book Clubs

by on Jul.28, 2011, under Fun Stuff, Life

For a while the popular social activity was to join a book club, then once a month we would get together at someone’s house and spend a couple of hours talking about the book. But then people started having conflicts and not showing up. Next thing you know, it’s down to just one or two other people, and if you aren’t really friends with those few people, it gets easy to stop going.

I guess I need to find a new book club or maybe some other kind of club to develop a new hobby. Going home alone every night gets boring.
