Sit a spell, take your shoes off. Y'all come back now

Another great part of this Saturday's FAM Night was the BBQ at The Bookstore. I arrived early, about 6:30 pm and this is what I saw when I rounded the corner. It was a cross between Sanford and Son and the Beverly Hillbillies! They had the BBQ going on atop the flatbed of the old 1948 truck.
Brisket, ribs, chicken and more were all being prepared. It was so funny. There was even a couple of rocking chairs next to the truck for anyone who wanted to hang out. Andy is cracking up at the whole concept going on here.
I started my night there and then went out and about around the FAM Night events and then about 10 pm, I stopped by again and there was a large crowd inside and out enjoying the food and waiting for the Mayweather/Pacquiao fight. They were showing it on the tv's there.

You can't see everyone here, but there were a bunch of people surrounding Jason at the grill, just hanging out, neighborly-like, there were even three dogs below him, out of the shot here.

A lot of regulars showed up and I started knowing so many people there. It really was a "Grove event." Hopefully they do things like this often. While all this was going on, I was taking Sangria from the cafe bar from a big jug and listening to open mic night, as I talked with my friends at a table near the stage. Really fun.

Tonight, May 5, is Local Author Night.
