Fine Spirits at Spoons Cafe

Pete singing harmony on "Stand By Me"
Pete got up to sing harmony on “Stand By Me”, if memory serves. Thanks for the sound check, Pete.

Last Thursday night, after singing the National Anthem at Lone Star Park in Grand Prairie, we decided to pay a visit to Spoons Cafe in Downtown McKinney.

Thursday night is “open mic” at Spoons, and we’d been entertaining the idea of paying a visit and singing a few numbers. We ordered dinner and listened to the acts who entertained the small crowd. There is a lot of really good talent in the young people around our community. These kids are pretty gifted.

Pete got up to sing harmony on a couple pieces, like “Stand By Me”. It was a pretty relaxed environment, and everyone was having a good time. Spoons is on the corner of Louisiana and Tennessee in Downtown McKinney, the square. The atmosphere is very laid back, but the Groto a few doors down sounded a bit more energetic.

The food was very good, and the $2 margaritas hit the spot. After a few minutes, we went up to the mic. We immediately went into “Crazy Little Thing Called Love” written by Freddie Mercury, followed by “When I’m Sixty-Four” written by Paul McCartney, and finally, “Under the Boardwalk” co-written by Kenny Young and Arthur Resnick.

We had a great time, and we’re looking forward to returning in a couple weeks. We’re also looking forward to seeing more talented performers like these kids.
