First, it's hard to believe Thanksgiving is almost here. I can't wait to chow down on some bird and grandma's homeade fixins! THEN, it's off to bed for a early morning of BLACK FRIDAY shopping! Fighting the crowds, a**hole to elbow shoving, and getting that holy grail of gifts! I remember back when you didn't know what the ultimate deals were until you got the newspaper and mapped out your quest. Now, with internet "leaks" you can find the deals early, and even buy from the comfort of your home online! Here is a link to see a sampling of what's to come on Black Friday. Happy shopping, and save me some stuffing!
Well, another great weekend! Friday night, what a bad-ass concert with BLS at The Cotillion! The place was packed, the opening acts were unbelievable, and BLS totally brought it! Zakk Wylde is one of the nicest guys in the music biz too. He loves to talk your ear off, to the point where his tour manager had to bitch at him a couple of times to shut his trap because they were on a tight schedule. Which, may I add, Zakk then told that dude to "shut the F**K up, I'm talkin here'"! HA!!
METALLICA's KIRK HAMMETT Accidentally kicks a little kid off the stage! Another clip has been posted online of a METALLICA concert that took place in Sydney, Australia last Thursday (November 11), where guitarist Kirk Hammett is seen kicking a large black balloon that accidentally smacks into a small child standing onstage and sends the child flying several feet into the audience. At first it was reported that the little one was James Hetfield's son. But not the case. The child was apparently the daughter of either METALLICA's production or tour manager. The child was not injured, so it makes it easier to watch! The band's management said they plan on contacting Tom Bergeron at America's Funniest Home Video's to see if they could score $10,000. Ok, I made that last part up. HAHAHAHA!!
So today and every Thursday, I hang out at The Garage Bar & Grill in Delano with the comedians from the Loony Bin Comedy Club from 11a - 1pm. Great $5 buck lunch specials, 2-4-1 well drinks, and FREE tickets to the Loony Bin! Come out on Thursdays for all the fun! (except next Thursday, it's turkey day)
How did your "Black Friday" shopping go? Fortunately for me, ALL of our Christmas shopping is completely done! I thought about getting up early and getting a couple extra things, but that is a avoidable nightmare, so I stayed in and just surfed the web for deals. I'm glad I did, because I saw the nutty store lines on the news! However, I thought I would do a quick run in & out at Kmart on my way into the station at 9am, and JEEZ! Every checkout lane was still 20 people deep, and I bet I would have been in the checkout lane well over an hour. Screw that!
How many events or cool things are there in Wichita that you miss or don't even know about? Well, I am on a new mission to go out and bring you these fun things so you can go out and enjoy them too! Just when you might say "there isn't anything to do in Wichita", I'm gonna prove you wrong! There is a ton of neat things to see and do right here!
So maybe you have heard of Mega Metal Magazine. It is a bad-ass rock-music magazine based out of Hutchinson, Ks.
