I thought my gossip well was going to dry up during this pandemic. But if anything, the craziness and feeling of lawlessness has lent itself to even more Boozie “news.” Don’t get me wrong, I am not happy about this. I am so ready for this nightmare to be over so we can all get back to our usual shenanigans. But until then, maybe some of this will make your day a little brighter.
Music on Macy
Word on the Place was a group of local musicians known as the Dauphin Street Stompers strode up and down Macy Place last weekend, playing their instruments and delighting all who were sitting out on their porches social distancing. Videos made the rounds on social media and it was definitely an uplifting sound during these dismal times.
Can you spare a spritz?
A spy who was searching for toilet paper and bleach at the Dollar General at Dauphin and Sage last Sunday saw a sanitary sight for sore eyes.
Everyone was practicing social distancing pretty well, but the lady who was standing in front of my spy took her practices to the next level. After checking out, the lady noticed a can of Lysol by the register. She asked the cashier if he was allowed to spray it for folks “for free” and he said yes. So she held out her hands and her wallet and asked her to spray her down, and he did.
That’s like being sprayed with a mist of gold these days.
Glad to see everyone is taking this seriously.
Move over, James Corden. Who needs Carpool Karaoke when you have “Drive-Thru Karaoke?” It seems popular WeMo restaurant and bar BrewHa’s Pub & Grub was not going to let a little corona get in the way of their Friday night karaoke.
Last week, they allowed their guests to come belt out their favorite tunes in their drive-thru. Let’s just hope everyone BYOM-ed. The “M” is for microphone. Or at least lip-distanced at an appropriate level.
Some folks have been putting together puzzles, others playing board games like Monopoly or Scrabble. But sometimes you just have to get outside and get some fresh air. It seems a couple of ladies in Chickasaw decided to make sitting a spell a little more fun and certainly boozier, which, of course, I adore. They sat out in their front yard with a cooler and a sign reading, “You honk, I drink.”
No word on how many honks they received, but we are guessing they felt pretty good by the end of the day.
Rolling through the deep
I don’t know who was responsible for this but kudos to whoever posted a video to YouTube with the title “Governor Ivey orders closure of ALL alcohol sales in Alabama.” Surely people were having heart attacks all over the place at the horror, but those who did click on it just found Rick Astley singing “Never Gonna Give You Up.” Classic Rickrolling: Pandemic Edition.
Well, kids, that’s all I got. Just remember, whether rain or shine, dramatic or scandalous or just some plain ol’ drive-thru karaoke lovin’, I will be there. Ciao!
