Gobble gobble, wobble wobble, Thanksgiving is here! Turkey Day is up there as one of Boozie’s favorite holidays. Of course, nothing will ever be able to replace my favorite holiday, Mardi Gras. But since I’m feeling thankful for so many things, I decided to share them with you!
First off, I am thankful for alcohol, for obvious reasons. I believe this year everyone should skip dessert and have apple pie shots instead. Let’s be honest, that might be the only way you’ll be able to handle your family. You’re welcome.
Second, I am thankful for my spies. Until they make time-hopping or time-traveling possible, I can’t be multiple places at once. So thank you for being more sets of eyes for me — couldn’t do it without ya!
Next, I am thankful for a four-day weekend! I desperately need a break and will probably need another break after being around family that long.
Last but not least, I am thankful for all of you. Nothing makes me happier than knowing I brought you the oh-so-tasty gossip you crave week after week. So dig in!
Mystery at The Steeple
Here is the church, here is the steeple, open the door and see all the people! That nursery rhyme couldn’t be any more perfect when describing the sold-out Mystery Band Concert that took place Friday night at The Steeple in downtown Mobile.
Wondering how it worked? People bought tickets to a concert, then found out who would be performing. Risky but I like it. The band turned out to be one that got its start here — it was The Band Perry!! Everyone said the concert was awesome and The Steeple a great venue.
Boozie sure hopes 95 KSJ does the Mystery Band Concert again because I missed the first go-around. And the money spent on tickets for these mystery events goes to charity, so if you don’t end up liking the band you are still doing something nice for mankind. ‘Tis the season of giving!
Like a rolling stone
Last Wednesday, Nov. 16, Bob Dylan graced Mobile with his presence at a sold-out show at the Saenger Theatre. Maybe Bob can’t take the time to pick up his Nobel Peace Prize in Literature, but he still made time for MobTown. Thanks, Bob!
Boozie was told the show was sold out, and that it was awesome. She was glad to hear that at 75 Bob is still killin’ it. I hope I’m still able to do what I love at 75.
And while I’m talking of “killin’ it,” I need to tell you about a girl who is actually killing it. “It” being that young people suck. Brace yourselves.
One of Boozie’s spies overheard a younger woman say something so unbelievable. First off, she was there with her dad, but still wasn’t that young. My spy heard her say it was fun seeing Bob Dylan even though she didn’t know any of his songs. Yes, you read that correctly: she doesn’t know ANY of his songs. Like, girlfriend, do you live under a rock? I would give you some slack if it was some random band, but this is Bob Dylan we’re talking about. Maybe I am just old? Nahh, the better question is, who bought this chick a ticket to a sold-out concert when she didn’t even know one Dylan song. I would have gladly gone in her place. #SMH
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas
This past weekend Mayor Sandy Stimpson and a few of his adorable granddaughters flipped the switch on the Christmas tree in downtown Mobile, officially making the city ready for the holidays.
And that’s not the only thing getting Mobile ready for the season ahead: Riverside Ice is back! Sandy has already laced up his skates and said if he can do it so can you! Riverside Ice offers adult ice skating lessons, just FYI for all you folks who have sea legs instead.
Just when we thought Steve Nodine had left town, we get reports he was spotted downtown! We hear Mr. Nodine was having a good time Friday night in downtown Mobile just outside of T.P. Crockmiers.
Well, kids, that’s all I’ve got this week. Just remember, whether rain or shine, dramatic or scandalous, or just some plain ol’ Bob Dylan lovin’, I will be there. Ciao!
