I was in my favorite resturant yesterday (Cresent city cafe in Deep ellum for those of you in the Metroplex) and there was a folksy/country/bluegrass type band playing there called the New Hokum boys (No, I'm not kidding) They sounded great, good singers and not a single note out of place. I was going to slip them a fiver, but then I noticed the bass player was playing an alembic that would probably be worth over $5000. You know I was thinking, who needs this $5 more, me who plays a $300 yamaha, or this guy? So I put the money back in my pocket and kept listening. I felt bad about it later, but was I completly in the wrong here? If so, I'll go back next week (they play every tuesday) and give him a $10. I promise. Maybe we could make it a lunch gathering for the TB gang in Dallas! I guarantee you'll love the food, it's incredible.
