Last night we dropped in to Yesterday’s to help Duncan and Scotty McRae and the gang celebrate 30 years in the heart of Five Points. To drag in the ultimate of journalistic cliches, a good time was had by all.
Jack Van Loan was there with wife Linda. Jack is the one who first introduced me to Duncan (whom you can see at the very center of the photo above) years ago. We saw other friends, and met new ones. Our booth was popular because we’d brought along my daughter’s roommate Laura, a longtime Yesterday’s waitress who has been out for awhile recovering from surgery, and everybody was glad to see her.
One of those who stopped by was the Yesterday’s cowboy himself, who had been missing from the bathtub over the front door during the last weeks of the countdown to the anniversary. (My apologies for the quality of the photos; I didn’t have my camera, and shot these with my phone.)
There was live music by a man with a guitar immediately behind where I was sitting. His first number, of course, was "Yesterday."
Anyway, it was a fine party, and I wish the folks at Yesterday’s 30 more good years…
