Saturday/ the Capitol Hill Block Party

Pabst Blue Ribbon beer has been around in the USA for a long, long time : since around 1844. The blue ribbons around the beer bottles were done away with in 1912 already, but the beer is still around (the brand is now owned by SABMiller company).

I say keep it simple with your band’s name. So if it were ME, and I was to choose a name, I would go for the ‘Rabbits’ or the ‘Doldrums’. (Doldrums : 1. a state or period of inactivity, stagnation, or slump | 2. a part of the ocean near the equator abounding in calms, squalls, and light shifting winds. Source: Mirriam-Webster dictionary).

On Saturday Gary got me out of the house to go to the Elysian Brewery Co. for a quick bite. After that we walked down two blocks to check out the Capitol Hill Block Party.  The ‘party’ consists of a few Capitol Hill city blocks that are fenced in, with four stages of live music, and beer and food that’s available.   I don’t drink enough beer (had my one at the Elysian already!), and I don’t really listen to live music so : not for me.   It was still early, and that may be why the crowds appeared to be a little thin. There was also the ‘Seafair Torchlight’ Parade going on in downtown Seattle (which admittedly is more of a family affair than the Block Party).
