Comments

It looks to me like Rockin' on the River would be the perfect venue for my band. We're called The Tribute Band Tribute Band.

In our paying tribute to tribute bands, we surpass them in tributality. Look on our tributes, ye tributers, and despair!

I've seen a steady increase in cycling trips along Madison Ave. after the road diet. I've been one of those riders, too. It's made summertime trips from my house to the Point on Madison that much faster than walking, and there's really no need to drive that short distance - thereby saving a spot for another patron. I've not only enjoyed the F out of the trip, but burned a few calories, too, which considering my diet, is much needed. I'm very very pleased with this effort and thank CDTA, CDPHP and CDTC for their efforts in making this happen. I'm resolving to make MORE trips in 2019!
