"Appreciate the review and colorful narrative. Just one minor correction. Shaw is located in the southwest section of STL not northwest. You wouldn't want to do a show in northwest STL."

"They probably were saving their money for the Anchor Bar that opens next money. That's the same Anchor Bar in Buffalo that started the chicken wing thing."

Rochester is a very affluent northwest suburb of Detroit.  Mucho dinero live here.  Everybody dresses in expensive outfits adorned with expensive purses and belts.

In earlier times AA was one of the top Michigan shows. Lots of artists did five…

Lake Forest Art Show— a supreme “washout” in more than one way

So I got to stay at a Red Roof Inn in Waukegan. The city has seen better days since when Jack Benny was born there.

OK, back to LF.

I have done this show about six times.…
