Welcome to Indiana [click pictures to enlarge]
Yes the journey continued, after I landed in Charlotte I found out my flight was canceled so I booked another and went to the bar and waited and and enjoy the company and a couple of drinks. That flight too was eventually canceled and after finally getting a voucher I booked a discounted room, climbed into an over crowded van and headed to the hotel. It was a great room with a kitchen even.... Adam suggested I cook myself breakfast ....too bad I had no food to cook. A short sleep and a much needed shower and I was back to the airport for an early flight to Indianapolis.
The Slippery Noodle was next and we drove into Indianapolis. The bar has the distinction as being the oldest bar in Indiana and was at one time a brothel. They have two bands and we headed upstairs to listen to the rock band. It was a cover band but I was impressed in that it played a huge variety and many oldies.
Lucky enough to get a couple of seats at the bar we enjoyed the band and the diverse people that frequent The Slippery Noodle. There was a convention of some sort having to do with motorcycles parts and accessories and we even met a few motocross riders. We also had a nice chat with the guy who books the bands for the bar. Sitting at the bar has several advantages one of which is we had several drinks bought for us [never hurts to be hanging out with the girl with the "nicest butt" in the bar] and I was introduced to a shot called the Lemon Drop. Apparently there are several recipes and I am not sure how this bar made them but they were yummy. The best part being the sugar covered lemon wedge you suck on after the shot.
It was a late night so we slept in the next day and enjoyed a late breakfast of eggs and bacon. I do know the best places to stay and have the best hosts....our plans that day are to see the movie Avatar.... more on that tomorrow.
