The summer has officially started and I haven’t posted from No Wake Zone yet. Time to correct that right here and now! And there may even be a couple of guest stars joining us tonight. To the MBIP Moblie!
Off we go rattling into the night at a cruising speed of 27 MPH.
Uh oh, the Old Style light is out, time to change the bulb, Pete!
The lights are all on over here, let's go inside and start our evening.
Time to walk the plank into No Wake Zone. Note how this photo is kind of fuzzy, my 365 Bars camera died about a month ago and I've been using this one and every now and again it's like its got a mind of its own and does weird things like fuzz out on me. Bad camera!
Look it fuzzed out again here on this shot of the Galley hours. HATE my camera!
It fuzzed out on me here too, fuck! HATE, HATE, HATE my camera!
There was a thunderstorm earlier and it may have cleared people out of here, but that means more seats for me at the bar! Let's grab one and get settled in.
Lyndzi, the pretty and friendly bartender on duty serves up the first beer of the evening and we have officially begun tonight's post! Ring-a-ding-ding!
Here's my view of the front of the bar from of my stool...
And here's the view of the dining room behind me.
A shot of the half dozen brews on tap for Spike and the rest of you beer aficionados out there.
Here's a full shot of the bar which is bathed in magenta hues at the moment.
And a long shot of the bar from the opposite end of my seat. Okay, we've looked at this bar from both sides now, bows and flows of angel hair and ice cream castles in the air
and feather canyons everywhere. So there!
My godamned camera is fuzzing out again, but this picture brings back memories!
Lots of nightly specials at No Wake Zone as you can see by this sign here...
It's still spitting rain outside, but let's go out and take a look at the deck.
Jesus Christ, not only is my camera fuzzing out, now it's like someone put a hit of acid in it!
Another fuzzy shot of the covered stools out here.
The deck overlooks Galena Road, which you can see is pretty quiet tonight.
Over here a pirate flag twists in the evening breeze.
Arrrr mateys, shiver me timbers and learn how to talk like a pirate here.
Meanwhile back at the bar, Lyndzi's hard at work and remember those two guest stars I promised you?
Here's guest star number one, Andy Hobin! We last saw Andy at the Red Barn in January and he's back in town for the 12th Annual Regis Philbin Synchronized Swimming Tournament. Andy's a writer and he may be joining the ranks of the MBIP Contributor's so stay tuned for his debut offering! That deadline clock is ticking, Andy, no pressure!
And here's guest star numero two-oh, MBIP pal and semi-regular guest star here, Amber. Normally we'd have a business card dual between MBIP and the All Smiles Dental Care, where Amber is part of that crew, but we decided on a truce tonight. Okay, in reality we just forgot to do it, so what are you going to do? Great to see both Amber and Andy and we had a fun time hanging out at No Wake Zone.
And don't forget to mark your calendars for Friday, June 20th when country music star Doug Stone is performing here with special guest stars, The Brian Dennison Band. Doug's a personal friend of No Wake Zone's owner's, Pete and Linda Clarno, so it should be a special night and performance. Tickets are available at the bar, but they are selling briskly, so get yours while you can! We'll see you all tomorrow...and hey, let's be careful out there!
