Hotel California

Walking home from pizza (where they asked where we were from and then had to Google San Francisco to see what state it's in) we happened upon a band playing Hotel California at the Cafe Teatro - (part bar, part gelateria) and Wally being the curious soul he is we snagged the last table. The lyrics were mangled - the Doobie Brothers did not sing "Without love - better to be now." but the band did. Gotta love those mondegreens (look it up).
The long-haired singer recognizable the world over. Children ran between the tables. Young couples proudly showed off their babies. The old ladies in their sensible shoes and modest dresses sat in the back with their smiling slightly bent-over husbands. It was magic. Hotel California will never be the same.
