    Woodford Reserve is the bourbon of choice here in Kentucky...

    Produced just up the road from me in Woodford County, home of some of the most famous horse farms in Kentucky.

    Ya'll have fun!

    I only recently learned that Knob Creek is where Abraham Lincoln was born.

    ...also a somewhat dubious note:

    Midnight Mandolin Cafe Meet 'n Greet

    Okay I checked with the Wintergrass folks and they are fine with idea of us getting together in the Wintergrass Media Room for a meet and greet on Friday night. Looks like the shows run up to about midnight so that's when I propose we do this.

    I will send a PM to all of the folks we have here on this thread with more details and if there are others that are interested let me know.

    Vegetarian vampires? What do they do, go around sucking the juice out of carrots?

    I can either bring a Rigel CT-110 or a Bulldog F5. Let me know what you're interested in playing.

    Count me in Pete. I'm now trying to figure out the best way to get to Bellevue to attend Friday's events, and your kind offer to meet on Friday night late. Probably drive home to the islands on Saturday morning. I'm very much looking forward to seeing all the mandolins owned by this group, and also share a look/play of my own BRW three point.

    Hey,
    Just to let you know I will have a booth set up again this year, I will have a hand full of minty fresh twinpoints and F5s. I will also be set up to do small repairs and set-ups. I will have a good supply of Steve's CA bridges and even one of his Redline Resonators. There will be some other surprises as well.
    So come on by while you are decompressing from a jam or a show and we'll talk mandolins, shop, repairs, sports, or whatever.
    See you all in Bellevue.

    I can't make it. Something else came up. Too bad, I was really looking forward to feasting my eyes and ears on a bunch of great instruments.
