Island time is everywhere
“Padre Island” Time is Trip Hunt’s 5th CD and features 22 songs recently recorded in Austin and Rockport. With thinking man’s tunes covering everything from an Irish lilt and guardian angels to a “Lonely Night in Austin” and inconvenient truths. There’s a little something called “Jamaican Me Crazy.”
I think this guy is like the Jerry Diaz of Padre.
Cayman Night in Port Arthur
Both Diaz and Hunt, mentioned above, play music that would fit right in with Cayman Night, but the Barefoot Man already has the gig.
The Greater Port Arthur Chamber of Commerce and the International Seafarer’s Center will host the 6th annual Cayman Night in Port Arthur from 6 to 11 p.m. Saturday, June 18, at the Carl A. Parker Multipurpose Center, on Lakeshore Drive, at Lamar State College-Port Arthur, 1500 Procter St. Barefoot Man and Band of The Caymans will perform in honor of the more than 500 Caymanians living in the Port Arthur, Texas area.

Gripping summer snacks
Road trips call for bags of snacks that ought to stay fresh throughout the journey. The Gripstic handles your chips as well as your frozen spinach. Run colorful plastic rods under the fold of you bag of coffee, cereal, etc., and another groove of plastic makes a tight seal. Bed Bath & Beyond and Kroger are two area stops for these goodies. They are a neat freak’s dream, because Gripstic helps bags stack up nicely in the pantry or fridge. firstname.lastname@example.org
