another night of music
The happy hum of the other rooftop diners buzzed in the background. Servers circulated, reviving thirsty patrons and delivering trays of food-shepherd's pie, bangers and mash, and of course, fish and chips. (Please note the accordian player in the background, it was the Bastille Day celebration! Also note the couple enjoying his music, there will be more on them later....)
Mike had staked out a spot close to the stage, he has been a fan for years and this date had been on his calendar for months. Being a casual fan, I was still ensconced at our table, feet up and enjoying a comfortable chair. It was shady, and I was perfectly happy enjoying this concert from a distance.
We ended up having a long conversation, they told me of all they had done while visiting Minnesota for the very first time. We talked gardening, they are planting in February while we dare to put things in the ground in April if we are brave. And of course, we talked about snow, which seemed such a strange topic on this spectacularly perfect July summer night, here in Minnesota.
The inside of Brits is charming, and dark, and full of character (and characters!) I can't wait to come here on a cold winter night and snuggle in to a dark corner, and tuck into some shepherd's pie and a pint.
