How We Met

One of many nights spent at Poor Paul's Pourhouse in Tallahassee

One of many nights spent at Poor Paul’s Pourhouse in Tallahassee in 2004

Allie and Scott met on the evening of September 19, 2004 at Poor Paul’s Pourhouse in Tallahassee, Florida.  She was a grad student studying politics and he was musician/facemelter.

On that fateful evening, Allie and her friend, Sally Harris, decided to go to Poor Paul’s Pourhouse for Sunday night drink specials and free Gumby’s pizza. Scott and his bandmate, Andrew Altman, had the same idea.

Allie and Sally invited the boys to join them for Jaeger shots. Because our families will be reading this, we’re going to leave it at that.

Their first date was going to a Michael Moore rally the night before the 2004 election.

Fast forward two years later, Allie had moved to Manhattan and Scotty was living in Nashville while touring. Scott’s tour finally ended with a show in NYC and he hasn’t left the city since.

Fast forward six years later: Allie had just finished cleaning Lulu’s litter box and was about to leave the apartment to go to Jersey for Thanksgiving with Scott. Scott then said “I have something to give you.” He pulled out a box and Allie said “is this for me?”

9.5 years later, after losing a bunch of weight last year!

Exactly 23 minutes later Allie had already purchased a copy of “Brides” magazine. Our wedding will be a celebration of TEN years together. And no, we will NOT be arriving in a horse drawn carriage.
