I left the office tonight with intentions of being home by 7:00 p.m. See, the deal was, it was this guy's last day so we were going to Rio Rita's for a drink and some nachos. One Grande Suprema margarita became two margaritas which led to a couple of Smirnoff Ice at Hog Wild.
While sitting outside at Hog Wild, who should walk up but a girl I used to work with whose brother is Jimmy Vaughan's manager. Jimmy Vaughan just happened to be playing at Antone's tonight. My friend came back to the patio and told me, "Tell the guy at Antone's you're with Jimmy Vaughan. I left your name at the door." So, I left Hog Wild and went to Antone's. The guy at the door said, "That'll be $5,000 please." I said, "I'm with the band." How cool is that?
Inside Antone's, there was this guy playing, I kid you not, drums, guitar and harmonica all at once. Then, his sister got onstage with her purse which was filled with maracas and they both played and sang and she had on some fabulous shoes which we found out later came from a store in Austin.
Then Jimmy Vaughan sang and who got onstage with him? Lou Ann Barton. Is there anyone cooler than Lou Ann Barton? Let me answer that. No. There is not. So, here it is 1:00 a.m. I have to get up in five hours. I passed my office on my way home and thought it would just be easier to go into work than to go home and go to bed. Too late for that.
