I’m sitting at a Southwest gate at Eppley waiting to board a silver dart to Gotham after having spent a lovely weekend in Fresno. Yes, Fresno. My only comment about Fresno is that it’s a lot like Omaha, except flatter. Fresno’s Tower District is Benson on steroids. Lots of palm trees. Lots of street people. Something tells me drug dealers are kept busy if not with clientele then with the myriad of cops that cruised every street. Little known fact: The ’70s dance craze commonly known as “popping” evolved in Fresno. Thank you, Wikipedia.
Anyway that explains why there was no weekend report yesterday. And today’s travels will explain why I’m missing Baby Tears at The Barley Street Tavern tonight with Worried Mothers, Just Folks and Kid Little — a stellar show that gets started at around 9 and probably will set you back $5.
Oops, that’s my call. Gotta go…
