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.

I ride every day to work, and also after work for exercise. I love the concept of being a person who happens to ride a bike. There's a level of bike riding, with the high performance gear and sleek clothing, that makes riding seem like its not for everyone. I try to avoid markers like that, and always wear regular clothing/shoes/backpack with dumpy-looking bike. One concession is bike gloves.
