If you are a tech nerd as I am you couldn’t help but know that yesterday was “Back to the Future” day, the day in the future to which Marty and Doc Brown travel. In the movie Back the the Future II it is revealed that the Chicago Cubs have won the World Series. Last night my beloved Mew York Mets put an end to that plot line. Now if I could only figure out how to travel back to the preseason so that I could place a large bet on the Mets winning the World Series…
I should admit here that if it were any other team playing the Cubs for the National League pennant I would have been rooting for the Cubbies.
Last night I traveled in real time to Terminal West to hear Tobias Jesso Jr and Duck play. For the second Wednesday in as many weeks I was pleased by music that I would normally not hear when going to concerts. Jesso is a keyboard player and was backed by the band Duck, which is comprised of guitar, bass, drums, and a horns section. The band played songs, including some humorous covers, until Terminal West shut them down at midnight.
Tonight I’ll be pulling a Thursday night double by getting my hair cut prior to joining the trivia nerds at Cameli’s. I am considering spending my entire share of last week’s winnings on food tonight. That’s right, I might attempt to play trivia without drinking beer. Tune in again tomorrow to see how successful I was.
