Albany is a town of rumors. It often seems much more like a ‘small town’ than the population would seem to suggest. Lets clear up a couple of them.
For the last few months, I’ve heard and been asked “Is cask and kilt closing”? “Is Vikki giving up her part of the business?” “What happened to the Cask, it’s not as busy as it once was”?
Has their business fallen off? Lets not sugar coat it. Yes, it has. However, I can tell you for a 100% fact, Cask and Kilt is not closing.
The question is WHY has this happened and what is being done to stop it. First,due to some health reasons, the rambunctious 1/2 owner and manager Vikki has to take some time away from the bar. Look for her to be getting much more ‘hands on’ very soon, in fact…. Look for her tonight! Due to some scheduling issues, The brassy bitch herself will be back behind the bar, slinging the drinks tonight and tomorrow night as she personally hosts what she is calling ‘Rumors Party’
Heck, I’ve even heard rumors that one reason Vikki is absent is that she got the Manager, Alicia Kuhn pregnant. Yep, that’s right. It would seem that, according to rumors, Vikki used to be a man and impregnated Alicia! Wait, that doesn’t make sense…. oh well, this is how rumors in the Bany go!
Another recent problem that has plagued Cask is moving their live music to Friday nights and installing a DJ on Saturday night. Seems the out and about crowd didn’t like what the DJ was spinning on Saturday. Now that the Fall Season ( and it’s usual uptick on the amount of people going out) is almost upon us, Cask has decided to jump back into the live music scene with a vengeance. Over the next two months, Cask will be hosting some serious bands on it’s newly enlarged stage. With live music every Friday and Saturday night, Cask and Kilt is going to be a rocking place to be!
Tonight, it starts off with Dan Crowder and friends on the stage from 9-12. The upcoming line up for September and October is going to knock your socks off! Bands you’ve never seen in Cask before! The reunion of bands you thought were gone from the scene! Touring Acts that are going to rock the house! Major regional country acts as well!
Get down to Cask tonight and say ‘hi’ to Vikki busting her *^& behind the bar. Tell her how much you appreciate it and that you want to help set the rumors straight
