Now Friday was the road trip to Vincent’s in Worcester.  Night Train was playing.  The band and the meatball sandwiches are the reason for going.  It is a fine spot with an easy going crowd.  You could not tell by looking at the place but a lot of couples are in attendance.  It is not your typical uppie dating bar but a place where people are friendly and the atmosphere is welcoming.

This night Jeff handled guitar and vocals,

It is a cozy spot.  You are right up to the band.  And now in the warm weather, there is a patio.

Before getting to Vincent’s, we did a little visit to the city.  Drove by some old haunts and spent time at Jelly’s looking over CDs and vinyl.
