We waited out the rain yesterday morning and by 11 a.m., it was nice enough for the first Concert In The Plaza near Seventh and Maine. It was a great turnout and thanks to everybody who showed up, much fun! Here is WGEM's video.

We do a different level of business when Gus is here, but that's OK. I cannot be impartial about it - I've known Scott McNeal, the founder, for more than 25 years and I worked seven summers for Gus. It can be a challenge for the downtown community when Macker rolls into town. All I know is that we have more fun than should be allowed on the Dream Court.
The addition of registered officials on every court should help, too.
Don't forget - The Cheeseburgers play Saturday night just around the corner from Mackerville at One Restaurant. We woke up before the sun rose this morning and played this morning for the KHQA morning show, and again it was a blast.
So. Have yourself a safe Memorial Day weekend. When it's over, I'm sleeping until Wednesday.
