We have a stop serving beginning at 9pm here in Greensboro. I'm not sure about NC in general.
Anyhow about 8:30 I ran (drove) up my local brewpub which has a great outdoor setup and stage to catch the end of a jazz gig by local college students. They had drums, bass fiddle, electric guitar and trumpet. Sounded great.
I had time for one beautiful hazy IPA and listened til 9, when they stopped.
Though there's no alcohol served after 9,the brewpub
doesn't close until 10 so a bit of an open jam was suggested. A couple of kids were messing around and I walked up and asked if they minded if I sat in on harp.
They were excited and I have to say that made me feel good. 
Anyhow we broke into a jazz funk fusion thing that flowed like freedom. I was in love with the moment and by the chemistry I could tell they were too.
We ripped it for 6 or 7 minutes and faded beautifully. 
all this applause erupted and I swear I didn't realize how many people were out there.

Anyhow the quote is
" Opportunity only dances with you when you're already on the dance floor"

square one.
 
wish i was there.
haven't seen much live music lately, and i prefer the small intimate 'amateur' jams.

It’s gotten so bad that actually reading the theory you’ve been assigned can harm your job prospects, because basing your analysis on what authors actually wrote–rather than the vague summaries and half-assed analyses that have entered into the wider discourse–requires you to alienate yourself intellectually.

That is pretty much what I figured out when I went back to school in 2001 to get my BBA.  Give the instructors what they wanted.  Jump through their hoops the way they want you to.  It worked, remembering what my father told me long ago about a college degree.  It doesn't mean that you know everything the degree is supposed to represent, it means that you know how to properly finish a course study and find the answers needed to do so.

Here is how to succeed in slumlording, which may become even more useful if they really evict 4 million families next year; will probably get back on the NYT Bestseller list. I would pull out a quote, but I gave mine away to an aspiring property owner.

He [Donald Trump] more or less completely destroyed the old Republican Party in 2016, while the damage he did to Democrats was lasting in a different way. He forced them to abandon their pretensions to kumbaya liberalism and announce themselves as the elitist authoritarians they’d always been.

Everyone has a responsibility to not only tolerate another person's point of view, but also to accept it eagerly as a challenge to your own understanding. And express those challenges in terms of serving other people.

The single biggest and most consistent difference between the successful Asian countries and those Western countries that continue to struggle with COVID-19, is universal adoption of high-quality mask wearing and strict adherence to social distancing measures passed, and enforced by,national governments. These governments correctly calculated in advance that the costs of producing and distributing masks for everyone, imposing social distancing, and supporting the poor through short but effective lockdowns would be dwarfed by the longer term economic damage of continuing viral surges and the ongoing stimulus required as long as the virus rages unaddressed.

“At the beginning of a pestilence and when it ends, there’s always a
propensity for rhetoric. In the first case, habits have not yet been
lost; in the second, they’re returning. It is in the thick of a calamity
that one gets hardened to the truth – in other words, to silence.”
(Albert Camus, The Plague)
