Too hard for me to get around that venue with my walker.
Last performance i saw was Harry Connick Jr, not that he is a fave.
Am a fan of Diannah Krall, and Steve Tyrell.
Years ago when the Marriott Hotel on Wolf Rd had a pool club i met Smokey Robinson. I was leaving the restaurant at lunch time, and had taken a cold med. Smokey opened the door for me, and i almost fainted! I think he thought it was because of him? Probably my light headed feeling was from the cold med.

Although I think the city is best served by having the state decommission and demolish this section of highway, if it is to be, then a couple things to consider. First, a big challenge is integrating the trail with Broadway along the exit ramp that feeds B'way from 787.The second is covering the cost of maintenance, not only of the linear park, but of the framework holding it aloft. ...
