How to "Staycation" Big Oil-- This Last Weekend

Still staying close to home until I fly to North Carolina in a week.

FRIDAY, AUGUST 5th--

Mediterranean omelet at Dill Pickle in Spring Grove. Gasoline Alley at 5 pm for buck beers and that great view of Grasslake from the deck. I found out again that Cedar Inn in Lake Villa had been sold, which means an end to my deejaying!!

SATURDAY, AUGUST 6th-- Boating and floating. No bald eagle. Brats and corn on the cob at Lake Villa Days. Cedar Inn will reopen as Gellati's Pizza and Pub soon. Huge amount of work on the building. I really "Are Retired from Deejaying."

Drove to nearby Deep Lake Road and visited two places, one where I used to deejay back in the 80s. Grattan's Wharf is now Reflections, a perfect North Woods motiff bar and restaurant with a great view of Deep Lake.

Then to Jack and Lidia's Bar by Jack and Lidia's Resort, a place with small cabins, a beach and picnic grounds hearkening back to a much older lake era, now long gone. This is also a Polish place. Great small bar with polka music played by Jack on Saturday nights.

Still Not Finished. --RoadDog
