Hit all my favorite spots - even hit the Hot Shoppe in Albany twice for their amazing Tropical Lamb Burrito - that's a Lamb Curry Burrito, and one of the tastiest things to be got in the Gourmet Mecca that is the east Bay.
Mark and Molly's wedding was a blast, and Guy Michel's surprise birthday party was fantastic - I'm glad I was able to make it.

My trip back to the East Bay is coming up soon, and Paul Pot from the Clams included me in one of his dandy posters to advertise the fact.
I'll also be playing at Doggie Jomo's unplugged Jam Session at Connolly's on Sunday September 24, (5 pm onwards, 4822 Telegraph, Oakland) and I'll be stopping in at the Starry Plough open Mic on Tuesday night to see Joan and Girl George and all my other friends there (3101 Shattuch Ave., Berkeley)
Of course, I'll be hosting the Open Mic up here in Portland at SLABTOWN (1033 NW 16th) on Thursday Sept. 21 andThursday Sept. 28 - signup at 8.

Sunday evening crowd; playing for the regulars, and well-known Slide Guitarist Rollie Tussing showed up to welcome me to town.
I settled in behind the Mics and did my thing; played songs from the last CD, from the new one, and some old Delta Blues. The folks at the bar were appreciative; and the Mock will be a regular stop on my Portland route if I have anything to say about it.
An 11 minute cab ride from our loft in the Pearl. Convenient, and Jane enjoyed the food. ( I don't eat right before a show - makes me loggy.)
I'll be playing there again on Sunday, October 8th.
Hopefully, the first of many happy returns. There was even another old Philly boy there, Albert. Funny how at home That makes me feel.
Now I must head back into my box and play a little late night guitar.
