I was just sitting here thinking about the tunes for the next party and I wanted to make a suggestion.
If you are planning a cool party and you want some great background music. I suggest that you try Ultra-Lounge: On the Rocks, Pt. 1 and Pt. 2.
The selection features many greats doing covers of great songs such as Mel Torme's cover of Happy Together.
These tunes will go well with chilled martinis as the cool sounds fill the room making you think sitting a lounge talking with friends.
Karen and I are sitting here enjoying Huntsville's first microbrewery known as Olde Towne Brewing Co. Sadly, there web site is not working or someone hasn't paid the bill (just kidding). They are are listed in Wikipedia.
We first had this beer at the grand debuted on August 12th, 2004 which was held at Humphrey's
We have had all of their standard brews which are Amber, Pale Ale, and Extra Pale Ale. The Extra Pale Ale is brewed for the “Bud” crowd to make the jump to microbrew. The Amber and Pale Ale are typically for their styles. All three have well received in Huntsville, but the favors vary from batch to batch.
Presently, Olde Towne has a Hefeweizen out as their seasonal brew. It has been their best offering to date according to us and friends.
Karen and I have booked travel to the Southern Brewers Festival in Chattanooga, TN on the riverfront. It will be September 10th, 2005 instead of the Saturday before Labor Day weekend. It is a great event for all. Typically, 10 to 15 brewers are represented and each brewer has at least two beers available to tasting. At only buck a tasting with everything going to charity, who can beat it!
We stay for the whole weekend, because their is so much to do in Chattanooga. The best place to stay is Courtyard which across the street from all the activities.
We hope to see you there. We will be right in the middle of it all sitting in our folding chairs with cold beer, of course.
