Let me take you back, back to 2009! I know so long ago... well back in '09 I used to spend my summers working at two restaurants, drinking with my friends, and every Saturday night I would travel to Mount Pleasant with a group of people and we would sing in the Soaring Eagle Superstars contest! Basically it's a karaoke contest, with a live band and a big cash prize... 500 bucks!

I never won, or came close but it was a lot of fun! I haven't been back since '09, mainly because I moved to Grand Rapids and didn't have every weekend free to drink beer and sit around. Well this past weekend I decided why not get the gang together and head on up to the casino!
First off, you know you made an impression when the guy who works at the casino and runs the contest remembers you by name. I did not make the top 6 but I had a pretty good time rocking out to Patti Smith's, Because The Night!
I think I should go back to my 2009 hairstyle... what do you think?
