St. Pizza of Paper Plate, Patron Saint of Late Night Drunks

To borrow from an album title of Jon, Jen, and Kate's former band, The Porchsitters, last Friday night found a Drunk and Opinionated Axton Kincaid and friends unleashed upon our Babylon by the Bay. As the beer-to-fish-and-chips ratio moved to favor the former, opinions ran hotter and more unintelligible, resulting in heated arguments about music, many hugs, and a near altercation with a Seahawks "fan."

Eric Clapton in particular was paired with "the F word" (sorry, our moms read this site) about 20 times in an inspired one-minute long diatribe between Ryan and Kate.

The age-old "did she really write 'Live Through This'" Courtney Love debate reignited and almost resulted in the breakup of several couples.

The Most Drunk and Most Opinionated member of the band was refrained from accosting the poser wearing a Seahwaks cap and a sweatshirt with the stupidest slogan ever which we can't recall now that we're sober. (By the way, we like the Seahawks, but were irrationally enraged to see this idiot "coincidentally" showing his--we are sure long-standing--team pride the weekend they're finally in the playoffs.)

Highlight of the night:

After last call, Mac smuggling a full pint out of the bar for us to share as we walked around the corner for some therapeutic pizza.

Note contraband pint of beer at Cybelle's Pizza sidewalk table. Also note: It takes A LOT to get Mac this drunk.

Happy Birthday, Dolly!

We can't say enough about Dolly Parton. She's a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame, author of 24 number 1 Country songs (a record for a female artist). She has 41 top 10 Country albums (a record for any artist), and 110 charted singles over the past 40 years. Plus, she played a hot pink Flying V that matched her outfit when we saw her at Hardly Strictly Bluegrass. Dolly is one of our heroes, both musically and as a human being. In tough situations, we often ask ourselves, "What Would Dolly Do?" In honor of her 60th birthday, tonight we're going to watch "9 to 5" and pull out our photo album of our trip to Dollywood. Thanks for the songs, Dolly.

Ploughed at the Plough & Stars

We have no idea where all the people came from, but we were sure happy to see them at our show on Saturday. In addition to drinking, playing, and dancing, one of us wrestled. For once, no one poured beer on anyone's head.

Photographic proof that every AK member but Ryan is possessed by the Devil

What is up with Jon's cup?

Official Axton Kincaid Mascot Announced

Holiday greetings from far-flung Axton Kincaid kin have reminded us why we love our families so much. In particular is the recent news of one AK relative's abduction of a donkey from its abusive owners, and its subsequent tutelage in the art of beer drinking--including learning how to drink from the bottle by itself (once the cap has been removed, of course). We eagerly await the promised photographic proof, but in the meantime, we can only too well picture this donkey sitting on its haunches and sharing a beer with its new owner. We salute you, beer-drinking donkey, and proclaim you Official Axton Kincaid mascot. May your beers always be cold, and your previous owner forever cursed.
