Picture of the Day - Soul Cats

Today I worked an eight-hour shift at the soon-to-open Alta Maria Station Restaurant in Los Alamos. Today and tomorrow this rustic little berg is celebrating their "Old Days" annual festival and with the main drag Bell Street shut down the owners of The Station are holding an open house for the public to view the  improvements to the old highway service station-turned eatery. The Station is slated to open in the coming months as bureaucratic hoops are jumped through by the owners and their agents. Aside from Alta Maria wines and tri-tip sliders being served was a hot serving of American rock classics by the Santa Ynez Valley-based band the Soul Cats fronted by four gospel singers and supported by a ten-piece band. The girls killed it as did the entire band. As the singers were getting their tickets for food and wine I flirted with them that I needed to card them. They loved that so much that when they performed "The House of the Rising Sun" they dedicated it to me. That is one of my favorite songs of the 1960s and they proceeded to knock it out of the park and I was honored thus. Thank you, Jo (far left), for the dedication and the hug!
