Carol's Gotta Go!
Phil Collins Adventure Club…GO!

Remember Showbiz Pizza? The ‘Rents took me a few times when I was a kid before Chuck E. Cheese ate the franchise and took over.

After watching this: "The Rock-afire Explosion" it brought back all of these nostalgic feelings of being a kid again and feeling proud of my straight A’s (you bring in your report card and get a free token for each A!).

Turns out this dude, Chris Thrash (fueled by Mountain Dew and DJing at the local roller rink):

decided to keep the dream alive by opening a Showbiz Pizza Zone in Phenix City, AL.

Ok. Now for the backstory.

Suj, Peggy, and I have recently come up with the idea of adventure-seeking. After the showing last night, we had a hearty meeting where we brainstormed about a zillion things that we’d like to do in the near future. A Facebook club was formed. It’s happening.

I’ve been jonesin’ for a road trip for quite some time now. I’ve also been jonesin’ for a trip to Atlanta to visit the new-biggest-in-the-world mega-aquarium:Whale Shark

Turns out Atlanta is on the way to Phenix City!

And guess what’s on the way back?

Hoggle!

Hoggle! From The Labyrinth. On display at the ultimate resale shop: Unclaimed Baggage in Scottsboro, AL. Totally fits into the theme of seeking out monsters on the road.

Now I feel like I have a purpose. None of these locations would really be worth it on their own. But when their forces combine: best. road. trip. adventure. ever.

Oh. Aaron Fechter, the brains behind the animatronics, takes bids on popular songs and reprograms one each month. Check out this MGMT one that pulled in $1200 for him.
