How to "Staycation" Big Oil: This Last Weekend-- Part 2

While at Jack and Lidia's, one patron playing pool swore loudly. Immediately, several other patrons jumped on his case saying there were ladies present. You don't see that much any more.

From Jack and Lidia's Polish place, we drove back to Grasslake Road and to Captain's Quarters on Fox Lake. They have bands Saturday nights from 7 to 11, perfect for us early-to-bed folk. Plus, they have $2.50 Coronas and Corona Light bottles. Pass the lime.

Next-door-neighbor Melanie was bartending and had a new computer to do orders on. I volunteered to walk behind the bar and mess it up for her. She wasn't very appreciative of the offer. Two weeks ago, their computer went down. They replaced it last week on Wednesday morning and another storm came through and fried it. Reckon i see why she wasn't appreciative.

The band was Odd Man Out and we heard two sets. They played mostly newer stuff. surprisingly much of which I had heard, but not Liz. They were not the best we've heard at Captain's, but alright.

We also had planned to go over to Fox Lake for Venetian Night and the fireworks, but with all the bars and Coronas, I figured I best get myself home.
