POSTING:

The Wooden Spoon Saloon: This place is fantastic. We hit a bad patch of traffic on the way....which, upon retrospect, was to be expected given that we were in New Jersey. However, when we finally arrived and geared up, we were warmly greeted and well cared for. The food and service is fantastic, and the patrons like them some good music. We can't wait to go back next month.

Plattekill Mountian: As always, we had a phenomenal time. The place was filled to the brim, warm, and cozy. We performed straight through, and felt love at every breathe. See you guys next month.
