Well, Jeni's Mobile Dipping Division made its maiden foray into the LC Pavilion Wednesday evening and we're proud to report that the journey was a successful—and downright enjoyable one. Many a concertgoer sampled the goods and we were able to donate a portion of the proceeds to the Andy "Andyman" Davis Memorial Fund.
Oh, and one notable concertgiver was able to sample the goods, as well. Following a late-afternoon soundcheck, Lyle Lovett moseyed from the stage to the lobby for a little pre-show nourishment in the form of a double shot of Salty Caramel atop a sugar cone.
Scooper R.J. Lemrye said, "He tried to pay me for it but I said, 'No way. I'm getting to hear you play for free. Don't worry about it.' So, then he gave us a twenty to donate to the Andyman Fund. He just seemed really genuine and he said he was really happy to be in Columbus again—and he seemed genuine when he said it."
Cheers to you, Mr. Lovett, and cheers to everyone who turned out for the show and spent some time with the Mobile Dipping Division!
