    Hey broski, man, I can’t even begin to tell you just how awesome these people are.

    David bass for instance is so fun to be around and very considerate, Stephen was so attentive to our questions and he made us feel like he really cared you know what i mean?

    Stephen ate with us one night and he sat at our table and just fascinated us with like an hour long discussion on every topic you could imagine. I was so into what he was saying that at some points i forgot to eat.

    I bet the people at the restaurant thought we didnt like the food or something because we were so engrossed in what they were sharing with us that I dont think the majority of the people ate too much.

    I do know this, there sure was lots of brewski’s thrown back.

    I was totally wasted cause i had like 5 DrPeppers, lol ๐Ÿ™‚
