It wasn’t quite the weekend we had planned. The original plan had been to see ZZ Top with Jeff Beck at the Foxwoods Resort & Casino along with a weekend away in quiet Mystic, Connecticut. But, unfortunately, only days before the concert, ZZ Top’s Dusty Hill hurt his hip and the show was canceled. Luckily, the legendary Beck still did the show and had some help in the form of Tyler Bryant, the pleasantly surprising and rather talented opening act who, with his long hair and leather jacket, could pass for a young Mark Lanegan. But it was what we did before the show, exploring Mystic, that was the most fun for me.
