Presenting Today's Warm Fuzzy

rob macarthur thanks the coast for "best jam space" category

Posted By on Tue, May 24, 2011 at 3:09 PM


I was forwarded the following email from Rob MacArthur, who as you may recall, decided to close his much-beloved jam space The Rock Garden after five years last November. The Rock Garden won Best Rehearsal Space in this year's Best of Music Poll and I thought I would share MacArthur's response below.

Wasn't sure who to address this to but wanted to say thank you to whoever was responsible for including the category for best jam space in this year's poll.

One of the disappointing aspects of walking away from the Rock Garden was that I wouldn't be able to take my daughter there if she wanted to learn an instrument, to meet all the wonderful regulars I had and/or just to see what her dad did/had done.

When the time comes and i get to tell her about life before her this clipping will be a nice note to end that part of the story on. Thanks for that.

MacArthur then attached a photo of his daughter in the email. While I will not include the photo here, trust me - all signs point to heartbreakingly adorable. Thanks for the nice words Rob!
