We call it...the Sunset Ramble.
|The foot is mine. The Mini belongs to Gia. The Lincoln to a neighbor.|
Named in honor of one of Gia's hero, Levon Helm - who runs his own Midnight Ramble at his joint in Woodstock just about every Friday night - all that is needed for the Sunset Ramble is your own place and time, some good tunes and the cold beverage of your choice. This past Friday, we went with a selection of The Band (naturally), Tom Waits (a current favorite), Amy Winehouse, Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Loudon Wainwright III, Nina Simone, Steely Dan, The Andrew Sisters, Adele, Stevie Wonder, Marah, Kings of Leon and many, many, many others. Our beverages of choice were a couple of canned beers named Hell or High Watermelon and Dale's Pale Ale. Canned beer just seemed to naturally go along with the whole white-trash vibe we were going with.
So why don't you join us one of these Friday night?
Um, I don't mean that you should actually come over to our house and drink our beer. That would be weird. And a little rude. No, I mean that you should set up your own Sunset Ramble with your own loved ones. Play some of your own music...stuff that you are really into. Serve some of your own beverages...alcoholic or otherwise. Invite some friends, or just hang with your honey. Or by yourself. The Sunset Ramble has no rules or restrictions.
Except your own. And feel free to break those at any time. It's the Sunset Ramble, bitches!
