Bridge Street Inn rocks out at Gary Kramer Guitar Cellars

The Bridge Street Inn enjoys intellectually stimulating guests on many different levels. I have exciting news, Jennifer from Gary Kramer Guitar Cellars has given the Inn 2 for 1 wine tasting coupons. Need some hair metal intelectual stimulation? Your host will happily play Van Halen on the record player and over coffee share with you his favorite hair metal stories. After a hairy metal morning at the Inn travel to @garykramerguitarcellars in Paso Robles for a hairy metal afternoon. The guitars, memorabilia, delicious drinks and hospitality are worth the 38min drive:):):)

The Six String by Federico Garcia Lorca


When browsing The Bridge Street Inn library you’ll find gems like the book, Poem of the Deep Song by Federico Garcia Lorca.  The collection of poems captures, “the passionate flamenco cosmos of Andalusia’s Gypsies, those mysterious wandering folk who gave deep song its definitive form.”

One of my favorite poems from the book is called The Six Strings.

Las Seis Cuerdas

La guitarra
hace llorar a los suenos.
El sollozo de las almas
perdidas
se escapa por su boca
redonda.
Y como la tarantula
teje una gran estrella
para cazar suspiros,
que flotan en su negro
aljibe de madera.

The Six Strings

The guitar
makes dreams weep.
The sobbing of lost
souls
escapes through its round
mouth.
And like the tarantula
it spins a large star
to trap the sighs
floating in its black,
wooden water tank.
