Seen and Heard

Location: Mangroves Bar in Tampa, FL

Heard: Don't Stop Believin' by the bar vocalist

Happy hour. The drinks were flowing, conversation was slurring, a good time was being had by all. The night was definitely shaping up to be a 10 when something happened to launch it to a 10 million-plus-infinity. The bar vocalist, a very sweet girl with an awesome voice, announced, "I think it's time for a little Journey," and began her rendition of "Don't Stop Believin'."

Amazing. Nothing like hearing a little Journey during happy hour. In fact, it should be mandatory. Even if you're at a happy hour that makes watching paint peel look like an awesomely good time, if you were to hear a Journey tune, the night would instantly turn around.

Journey: a happy hour necessity.


  1. Sounds like an amazing good time, I love hearing Journey in random places. :)

    Steve Perry really does make every hour happy hour. If you can't leave work for free jalapeno poppers and two dollar well drinks, just crank Any Way You Want It. Instant happy.

  2. You are a funny gal! :)

    By the way, it is true - Journey makes any experience better!
