Have a great time JB, I would love to go but unfortunately I will be at the BWCA (Minnesota/Canada border) fishing those exact dates.

I do have tickets for Buddy Guy at Ravinia in Sept.

Do you know when the Chicago Jazz Fest is?

Did I say next week? Ah, June 9th is a bit further out than that. Wishful thinking on my part.

Jazz Fest is Sept 1 - 4. The performers aren't posted yet.

Its bittersweet, hate to miss the Blues fest but the Boundary waters trip (taken at the same time last year) is well worth it. I will be sure to take pictures and post them. with a little luck there might even be a moose sighting.
