Christmas Tradition

It's time again for one of my favorite Christmas traditions, each December 23rd Michele and I rent a car and drive to Marin Joe's to have a few drinks and soak in the local Christmas spirit. Marin Joe's has a great old bar with an awesome tough, middle aged, fat bartender who saunters over to the piano every now and then, slams his meat hooks on the keys, and performs the most delicate, beautiful Christmas music you've ever heard.

Last year at Marin Joe's we didn't see Santa the night before, the night before Christmas, we saw Santana. The classic guitar god was reading a book and eating dinner under a giant flat screen TV showing a football game.

The year before that we watched Holiday Karaoke sung by what looked like the cast of "The Ice Storm" lead by our favorite piano playing bartender. So as we enjoy our tradition, we hope you're enjoying yours.

Happy Holidays!
