Thursday night was reggae night, so we tagged along with some friends to check it out. Now I don't know too much about reggae beyond what I learned from BigUpRadio.com in my cubicle. But I know enough to enjoy it, and to have a good time.
But there were some surprises. For example, when we walked in, it was just standard reggae beats. Chillin. We start chatting with our news friends and order some Nile Special (the dark, strong beer, coming in somewhere just south of Bud Heavy). By and by, we overhear some of the words.
"knock. Jah knock. knock, knockin."
"on heaven's dooooor"
yeah, i think i just heard... a reggae cover of hair metal. That's weird. Some of the other big hits of the night included "hero" by enrique, a song that's always been near and dear to my heart, and "do you believe in life after love" by
So we drank beer and danced to reggae beats. Luke saw some excellent cricket highlights on sportscenter while in line at the bar, and we finished the night with some delicious goat meat on a stick. goat is tasty by the way. It's a little salty, but it has a "robust" flavor that i'm really learning to love. much tastier than the beef, which is sorta gnarls.
