No Face

I would have no face if I were standing any closer to the guy doing the windmill move in the mosh pit at Mahogany Ridge on Saturday night. What is that windmill move, anyway? Some people were smart enough to stand in the restaurant’s booths to safely observe the pit and the show.

I know that a metal band is a stretch for Steamboat Springs, but it was a refreshing change. And No Face was really good. I haven’t heard anyone scream that well since I lived in my parent’s house.

I learned a lot about screaming from my interview with lead singer Guy Delhierro.

“When I was a younger, I screamed as loud as I could, and you couldn’t stand next to me,” Delhierro said. “Now I’m not screaming as loud. I’m using my throat and diaphragm, and once you learn that control, it’s not difficult.”

Delhierro described what he does as singing more than screaming.

“It sounds like I’m screaming, but I’m using different tones and pitches instead of ra-ra-ra,” he said.

Either way, it was impressive. But beware of the mosh pit.

Date night

I went to date night at Cafe Diva on Sunday with one of my favorite couples and one of my favorite moms. The four of us shared three seats at the bar, even after a fourth one opened up.

Diva offers the kind of intimate dining experience that fosters meaningful conversation and cozy interaction. It was the perfect balance of good friends and family and the best food.

Whether you have to poach someone else’s date, bring a friend or even dine alone, take yourself to Cafe Diva’s date night – you deserve to be wined and dined.

Running in place

The Central Park Plaza parking lot was milling with marathon runners picking up their bibs Saturday morning. It also was buzzing with the inevitable question posed by everyone I ran into: “Are you running?”

Luckily I had the excuse that I had to work Sunday, but the truth is that I’m not crazy enough to run any part of a marathon. Apparently there were more than 2,000 people who were. And people who missed the registration deadline reportedly purchased bib on eBay and Craig’s List to get in on the challenge. I’m impressed.
