On my list of fun stuff to do is late night riding once the weather warms up. A Lucero show at the Belly Up in Solana Beach was just the ticket tonight. Singer Ben Nichols was so drunk he forgot the words to several songs and turned the sing-along anthem "War" into a twenty-minute rant/restart that was pretty amusing. He closed with something like "Hey, this was fun!" and crawled/fell off the stage. Note to fans: quit sending the dude shots! It was worth the 100 mile round trip and it's always a treat to blast So Cal freeways at WFO when there's such thin traffic. Hitting reserve about ten miles out woke me up. Thanks to T2 and Chris H. for the excuse to come coasting into the neighborhood at 1:45ish and try to push back to the house in full stealth mode...
