Released: April 15, 2014

The EP is a nod to classic roc, livened up with melodic guitar riffs; with a sound similar to Guns N’ Roses, Aerosmith, and many classic rock greats, the group seems to have missed the mark on this particular album.

For all of your foodie Friday lovers out there I have a delicious seafood option for you! The Nickel Taphouse located near Mount Washington is going to be your go to place for oysters and the like! Whether you are stopping in for brunch or for a nice sit down dinner you will not be disappointed!

If you are more a morning person (but not really because its brunch) there are plenty of options for you, you can go with the not-so-classic classic brunch featuring Eggs in Hell which includes three eggs, tomato sauce, parmesan, olives, crostini and for some spice in your life Jalapenos.

For dinner I would recommend the iced oysters… wouldn’t mind some right now actually! These are delicious along side a chopped salad!
