Where Were We On Saturday Night???

Let's see.... It was the third Saturday of the month; so where were we? At Comedy on the River at the Green Kayak Market & Eatery (always on the third Saturday of each month) at New Richmond on the Ohio....As in the past we were not disappointed.

The Comedy show was led again by the same person, Loraine, who the folks at the Kayak call the Director of Comedy (D.O.C.).....She was "oh so" funny. We also enjoyed Landon, apparently a local New Richmond on the Ohio guy (wearing a kilt!!!)....Haven't seen many kilts down on the river, but maybe it's a trend. The headliner was a guy from Oxford, Ohio named Dennis Piper....This guy was side-splitting funny. His stories of the Oxford police, his bicycle antics and the funny closing song was worth the trip out to the not-so-sleepy Village on the Ohio River. Piper could be headlining at any Comedy Club in the country and those in the house at the Kayak enjoyed his comedy with no cover charge.

To make the trip even more worth it, we laughed, and laughed and laughed and then laughed a little more. Between laughs, we enjoyed a few "Blue Moon" draughts, followed by a Summer Shandy draught. Not many places on the river have the beer selection found at the Kayak.

If the beer and great food (try the twisted blt and cuban at the Kayak), we also bought some AMAZING stuff at the now-open Peacock Pastry. The Peacock Pastry has amazing bakery and, during your visit to the River, should be a staple of the visit. YUM!!!

As for the Ohio River, the river is still running fast and high. We are all hoping that the river soon falls to summer levels and we can hit the water in kayaks, canoes or whatever type of boat you enjoy.......

Hope to see you soon and "push out the boat!"
