Many thanks to my friend Dan for faithfully catching great moments on video. This is a collection of snippets from last week’s Urban Goatwalker which is an open mic coffee house held at Jeff Street Baptist Community at Liberty on the second Saturday of every month. Started over 18 years ago, each month vans go out to the homeless shelters to bring our friends to join us for a nice night out. It’s all candle-lit, tablecloths, and homemade deserts served by a volunteer wait staff. Once there, you really don’t know if the other folks seated around you are homeless, neighborhood residents, or just folks from all over the community who stop in most months for a night of great entertainment. An open mic is not without it’s awkward moments from time to time, but for the most part the talent is amazing.
The first good looking fellow on this video is my son. Isn’t he great?! I’m headed to bring him home this weekend, and I still totally fall in love anew with that boy each time I’m around him.
