The bad thing about time off is that it eventually comes to an end, but I’m not complaining, mind you. We had a great weekend away, and I have a great job to which I can return.

This photo shows Ellis Island playing the Hall Stage in the underground pub at the Weston Brewing Co in Weston, MO. It is two stories underground and originally was used to lager beer at a cool, natural temperature. It has now become a unique venue for music, certainly the most distinct place I’ve ever witnessed. I love finding places like this one; literally hidden away, off the beaten path, unknown to the masses, which is how it keeps its charm.

We found a table at the edge of the balcony and decided to stay put for the duration. This gave us a great vantage point to see the acts all day. It was about as good a day as I could ask for.

    This place was in MO? That venue looks awesome. Lincoln needs an Irish pub (that looks like a cave).
