A few pictures from our open mic/benefit show.

We didn't have quite the turnout we were expecting.... we actually bought a keg and still had a ton left over! At the end I started freaking out on Brandon a little because we were actually losing money at one point and then one crazy awesome couple made a donation that literally saved us! 

We also didn't have as many performers as we'd hoped for either but we did have a few musical friends that provided some great entertainment. Towards the end, it just turned into a karaoke/jam sesh. And then our dj friend turned up and we all just hung out until the wee hours of the morning. 

So not exactly what we were hoping for but fun and encouraging nonetheless. It seems that the right people always end up showing up and for that I am grateful. 

And if nothing else, at least we had my mother-in-law's famous potato salad. And that's good enough for me!
