I Am Not a Religious Man, But I Am a Thankful Man.

Thanksgiving is the best holiday of the year for Rachel and I, we think getting together with the people you love and eating and drinking too much, and laughing until you pass out (Tryptophan or Alcohol induced), is the best time you can have with loved ones. Halloween was cool as a kid, I just can't my groove on for it as much anymore. New Year's is great too, you get a chance to start again, and none of us get those enough.

My Name Up in Lights...so to speak.

Big or small, bright or dim, it is always fun to see your name up on the marquis. This summer we had to chance to play with a ton of great musicians. On this night, we were in Playa de Tijuana and were happy when we arrived.  The funny part is that I am Sixx Pack, but the band is Wild Pack, and even funnier is we never got to play that show because JL Blues had a problem and postponed the show. We did however meet another great young musician Juan Navarro. Just a few weeks later we all had another chance to play together at the Blues Against Hunger in Valle de Guadalupe.

We look forward to playing back in Tijuana again. In January, we will be touring with Los Corsarios del Blues from Mexico City. The goal is to tour all of Baja from Tijuana to Cabo San Lucas. Like most tours, it requires a minimum of participants to be able to do the tour. So, we are working on a secondary tour that does not require any minimums, touring northern Mexico; Rosarito, Ensenada, San Felipe, Puerto Penasco, Tijuana.

The Angel of Perpetual Hops and Barley

I'm a believer! I have my very own "Angel of Perpetual Hops and Barley" and pictures to prove it, Never fails, just as my cravings start to get the best of me, my Angel pulls me up from the ashes with the tastiest brews.

Today started out as a regular Mexican Pilsner kind of day, and then I get a text message from my "Angel of Perpetual Hops and Barley" that says I have a surprise on the porch. Oh yah baby - three tasty ales and 2 bottles of Saki! As if the heavens opened and dropped them there.

And not unlike those other angels; you know, the ones that receive wings on the chime of a bell. Well, I can assured you that when I open my angelic gift....with the pop of a bottle cap this sinner is gonna indulge in a heavenly cervesa!!!!
 Muchas gracias!
