I remember the day I received the couldn't-pass-up job offer. I cried and yelled at God pretty much the entire five hour drive to what was then home, Wolfville, NS. I was going to spend the year getting back.

Vintage Bistro website.
It's gems like the Vintage Bistro & Lounge in Hampton, just outside of Saint John, that keep me here. "Trendy Ambiance with Small Town Comfort". I haven't had a bad meal there yet. The owners treat everybody like their next door neighbour. The performance room has some of the best acoustics. And the artists they bring in...wow! It's truly like going to StanFest every weekend.

And Garnet Rogers, well he never disappoints. Known as one of the "major talents of our time". I was mesmerized watching his fingers sore over individual strings on his multiple guitars. He even showed me that the electric guitar can be beautiful. None of this lazy slide screeching. He played it like the instrument I never knew it was.

I love to travel, but last night I was glad I walked close to home.
