    There's cover over the outside bar, but not much of it and it only covers those in line. Other than that, memory says all other areas facing the stage are uncovered.

    Which begs the question… has Snakes never been to Avondale?

    There are about 3 covered areas there, but they will absolutely not hold everyone there if it starts raining, especially since it will probably be packed for that :twocents:

    Covid exposure is fine but rain is a Bridgers too far for Snakes

    literally have not been since 2016. Back in the day when Mrs. Snakes lived in BHam and I was in Atlanta, that was like the only place anyone was going when I would visit on the weekends. I got to where I hated it and swore it off. I haven't been since they updated the concert venue part of it.

    Nah. Someone will keep it open whether it's family or not. Too much of a Homewood institution IYAM.

    Agreed. Was just driving home from the office and could barely see the road. Get home and, in addition to the various rivers that have formed in the street, I see water ramping up and over my grass.

    Not sure what Stone Cold Steve Austin will do with himself if he can’t play 18 on Friday. Somebody might want to keep an eye on him.

    Stone Cold Steve Austin where did you end up getting take out from? Many people are saying that you’re selfish for asking for recs and not following up with the thread.

    They might be closed for a month, I heard one of their greens eroded in a creek. MBC is fine just a lot of debris cleanup.

    Volvo service auto shop recommendations around town? I called Franklin on acton rd but they’re not taking new clients. Trying to avoid taking it to the dealership.

    Coming this weekend. Had four but one guy has long covid and is fucked. So 3 of us. Just trying to find something solid for Saturday morning. That ballantrae place doesn't open Saturday tee times until tomorrow morning so hopefully I can get one. :idk:

    The important thingy is I have reservations at Helen and Automatic.

    Purcell is great.
    You could definitely get on at Bent Brook, if you can’t get a time at Ballantrae. BB is nice, but Ballantrae is nicer.
