Labor Day Weekend-- Part 5: Two More Bands, Four Bars

SUNDAY, AUGUST 31ST

The band, Next 2 the Tracks, came back out after a short break and started playing, and they were very good, playing covers and original material.  The drummer had a bongo and snare drum, so quite a different sound.  We were joined by Kelly and Cathy just as they finished (they have good band timing as well, but Cathy had an excuse as she had just gotten off work).

We then went over to Captain's Quarters on Fox Lake and saw the Eddie Butts Band out of Milwaukee, always a big draw on the Chain, so the place was crowded.

Next, we went to Nauti-Knots on Lake Bluff and sat out by the tiki bar.  Last stop was at Cuda's on Grasslake Road, then home.


MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 1ST:

Take it easy day with all sorts of dire storm warnings.  Kelly made up some of his famous ribs and came over for dinner.
