ONE OF THE highlights Saturday at our Second String Music fifth anniversary party is the adult piñata at 5 p.m. We will be selecting someone who is here to break the piñata to share with everyone, then head to Schuecking's parking lot for the festivities.
Sheryl and I were at the liquor store this morning buying small plastic bottles full of rocket fuel and other substances. They were only 99 cents each. Did my Dutch heart good, it did. We are filling up an old acoustic guitar and sealing the sound hole.
Frank Haxel is building us a frame to hang the guitar piñata - he just read this and said, "Bleep. I better start making that thing soon, I guess." The guitar is left over from the legendary Dropping Guitars Off The Roof Of Second String Music Competition.
The Mighty Adam Yates will be master of ceremonies. Steve Pezzella is bringing the baseball bat. James McKinney is providing security. The parking lot will be full of small plastic liquor bottles, and you can scoop 'em up at your own risk.
We start at noon with our jam session. Late afternoon Adam will be setting up a small PA system and we are featuring some of Quincy's finest musicians on our in-store stage.
We are also raffling off an amazing $1,000 Dimebag Darrell Dean guitar, giving away vinyl records and local artist CDs, and just having general mayhem and fun. Click here for full details.
After all, you only turn five once!
