Sunday I was in a watering hole wearing An ABB shirt. This friend looked at it and said, "Who is the Allman Cubans Band?". 

Another friend agreed with her, saying it is difficult to make out the words. 🙄 

How long had your friends been at the bar? Wink

So contractors were in our kitchen today. THB ordered all of the appliances to be replaced. Except the dishwasher. That's already been done twice. I wasn't told when it would happen. I came home, walk off the elevator and there is a new stove and an old one in the hallway. I'm like, "Oh Crap". So they had started it without telling us. I come in and I'm like, "WTF?". They were tearing the kitchen apart.

We were told to do this they say. The main issue was with the frig and freezer. They were concerned about the food. They told me they would move the frig into the living room and plug it in to the hallway. Then I could move all of the food from the living room back into the kitchen, the new frig while there is still a frig in my living room, then I would call and have someone replace the old frig. 

I honestly don't even know wott to think. 

I tried to soften the blow with her but she is going to be livid when she gets home.

And ironically the city is shutting off the water in our building tomorrow for seven hours anyway. Gotta love Chicago.

You might like this. I would like to see them but it is in the boonies for me. Is this a minor league baseball stadium?

Warming up. Scratching 80 degrees now. Might hit 90 this weekend. No central air so I gotta get the A/C units out. Pain in the asses putting them in.

Then the electric bill goes through the roof for about four months.

I don't have the password, so I can't see the ticket prices.  We saw him solo in Downers Grove and my wife loved him.  Yes I think that's a minor league park.

Bob Mould is playing the Vic in September with his band, and is playing solo in Bloomington in October.  Vic tickets are $35 - probably try to go to one or both shows....

I think Schaumburg has a low minor league team. Anyway, the password is REUNIONS. On the infield tickets start at $104.50 before fees. The cheapest seats are $59.50. Hell The Truckers don't charge that much and he left them.

And $35 at The Vic is a bargain as you know.

Latest news on my refrigerator. Since I know you are waiting with baited breath. When I came home I knew they had moved it because things on top of it were in different places and they left a bit of a mess. That puzzled me. Come to find out they did indeed bring in a new one, tried to install it. But they ordered the wrong size. Didn't fit. Never said a word to me.

The building didn't tell us, THB had to bitch at them to get an answer. So as I understand it now, it won't be here for a week or two when they get more appliances. 🙄

Played golf today, and did something I don't think I have done before - 6 pars in a row!  Also was putting for an eagle on a par 5 - but only got the par.  The windmill hole was the toughest ....

I can't remember, isn't there a seated balcony or is that the Riv? Patterson is playing The City Winery but those are sold out.

Truckers are also playing Evanston and Summerfest.

Good afternoon. 75 and 40 mph winds. We could have hosted the PGA!

Went to get tix for The Drive By Truckers. They had two options: Best available and general admission. I had to select from their "great ticket options". It defaulted to best available so I clicked on that. Price seemed too high. So I clicked on general admission. Same price. They took a $34 ticket and jacked it up to over $47. If you want to get your ticket at will call, they tack on $6 more. How you can take a $34 ticket and get it to $53 is beyond me.

I got tickets for Bob Mould and Drive By Truckers.  2 tickets for each were $91.65.  The Vic has seating upstairs - or we wouldn't go.  Glad Bob is playing there - he usually plays Metro.

Going to "grill" out tomorrow for a few folks. We can't grill on the roof so it will just be a George Foreman thing. I got some beer brats and made potato salad today. I've never made it and it actually turned out pretty good. A friend just got back from Milwaukee and brought me some dill garlic cheese curds. I've never tried to batter and deep fry them so I guess they will just be an appetizer. I don't think cooked or not cooked are any better than the other one.

Yes Lee, you have to download the AXS mobile app.  Seemed easier than paying $12 ...
