Being good friends with Joey C is always an adventure. I would say in our friendship, I am Cameron and he is Ferris Bueller (“he’ll keep calling and calling and calling”) or maybe I’m just part of his entourage. I can tell you this much, I have never came home and said “wow that was an awful time”.
Joey calls me on Wednesday and says I need to show up for a tasting at Cape Ann Brewery and then we will head over to Cape Ann TV. The “Tasting” was me crashing the Chamber of Commerce meetup. When we headed over to Cape Ann TV, we decided to have some fun. Joey wrote up his list of demands to be interviewed and I went in first and said I was his assistant. I clearly stated that as a result of all the media attention Joey has gotten, he has developed quite an ego and had a few requests:
The host Richard Sagall told me right from the start all we have at Cape Ann TV is tap water and a vending machine. I said I had to go back to the car and talk to Joey to see if he would come in. He came in and we all had a laugh, including the 3 high school interns.
Joey then put me on the stage with him. I post for him about once a month, but he called me key to the whole team. He then proceeded to crush the interview bringing that passion, honesty and a little bit of edge that makes him Joey C, his blog great and this community a better place! Richard and the interns were great sports, as he called them out for not posting their content to the internet and even tried to get some content for GMG from the high school interns. ABLC – Always Be looking for contributors! On the way out the door a lady yells to us from the Gym – “Joey do you ever Sleep!!!!”
We finished up the night with the boys from the Farm and brainstormed for the next event we want to partner up on. Crazy night? Nope, just a night out with Joey C.
