For Some, Happiness Can Come in a Cup

I admit: I love coffee. Maybe you do, too. So, I thought I'd assist all of our wallets with this little piece of information/happiness.

Today, May 6, starts Happy Hour at Starbucks. 

That means from 3-5 p.m., you can get half-priced frappucinos. 

The Happy Hour is daily through May 15.

Now that is what I classify as good news.

                      What the Heck is a "Whaley"

I guess it was about 2 years ago, me and some friends of mine had been asked to play a show way out past Forsyth at a little music hall. I hadn’t been playing the mandolin very long, and was real excited. We got there checked in, tuned up and did our thing inside, a nice little building with theater seats.

After the show I went outside to cool down and there were several lean-to type structures and musicians were gathered up in small groups just a playing.

I Didn't Know

I Didn't Know

I had been to Juliette a 100 times, but i just didn't know they had an Opry there. About a year and half ago I discovered it.

I have been playing bluegrass about two years  and somebody said, "Ever go up to the Juliette Opry?"

"No, didn't know they had one," and probably neither did you!

Juliette Opry is located in downtown Juliette on Mccrackin street, just a stroll up from the Whistle Stop Cafe ,about 8 miles east of  Forsyth and about 20 minutes north of Macon, and is  open the first saturday of most months , with local pickers gathering up on the porch around 6-630(we're pretty informal) playing their favorite music. From the Allman Brothers to Bill Monroe, no telling what you can hear. Guitars , Dobros, Mandolins, the Upright Bass , good harmonies or sometimes just shut up and play. Around 8 p.m. a visiting group takes the stage for about an hour. Refreshment are available for purchase and we are a family-friendly environment.
