Bring Me some Blues




There are some things in your life that just simply make you feel good. For years I've been going to The Dinosaur Bar-B- Que restaurant in Syracuse, NY. It's a biker hangout, blues bar, and a great food place. They're quite famous now and have one in Rochester, NY and one in New York City.
Annie, my daughter, was usually in the Hospital in Syracuse when she was sick and so many times after visiting her I would go over to The Dinosaur and hang out and listen to the band. Blues made me feel good. I always loved being there, it was so comforting after seeing Annie in the hospital. It's a funky cool place with a great atmosphere.
It's been awhile since I've been there. I can't stay awake anymore! The band doesn't usually start till around 11:00 and it's more than an hour drive away, but I'm feeling like I need to hang. There's nothing like a warm summer night on the bike and headin' to The Dinosaur for some blues, but alas I'll have to take the car it's a little chilly. Anybody want to come?

I'd like to go, but will skip the ribs. Do they have tofu burgers?

Hey, will you swing by and pick me up? Just honk in the driveway and I will run out!

I HAVE BEEN THERE ONCE! I was working with another company and I was communting from KC to Fulton NY weekly. I was ask to re-locate to Fulton and turned them down. TOO much winter and snow. But one evening I drove back to Syracuse hungery for BBQ. Always trying BBQ from other parts of the country, after all I AM FROM KANSAS CITY.

I'm flying in from Calif. and am hungry! I saw BB King in San Bernardino, CA years ago. Never forgot it. I'll drink lots of espresso so I can stay up late.

I really like blues and would be glad to get up and play some bass guitar. There is a good local blues place here that has Tuesday night blues night. Anyone can sit in. It's a lot of fun.

Hiya Jenn...

This post made me hungry and long to be on my bike. The pictures from your walk are breathtaking. I hope all is well with you in your snowy little corner of this world.
