Class of '68, Classic Cars and Wings and Shrimp

The Staycation against Big Oil continues as gas prices here in northeast Illinois continue to hover from $3.85 to $3.96.

Unfortunately, they didn't try to push it to $5 when it would have all collapsed.

Anyway, today, after boating and seeing a bald eagle and going to the National Athletic Club on Fox Lake where we completed the last stamp for the Chain crawl, we drove up to Antioch, Illinois, for their It's Thursday concert.

That meant 25 cent wings and shrimp at the Lodge on Main Street then walking back behind the place to the band shell.

The Class of '68 was playing, and, of course, that meant all that great music from the 1960s. I had heard about them several years ago when the wife of one of them contacted me on one of my blogs. I've been wanting to see them ever since and this was my first chance.

In addition, they were having a classic car show with lots of 60s autos. I saw about ten Mustangs, four Camaros and one Firebird.
