ABQKeet and I will be there.

Who will be the surprise guests, I wonder?

It will be nice to go back to the island ... I know we can't recreate ALL the magic of Hoot Island, but I'm glad to visit there again. I love the venue. So many great concert memories there.

sadly- I don't think I will make it. Middle of the week is hard, but on top of it all, the 21st is one of our biggest fundraising events for the MS society. it would be hard for me to get off from work....
There's this one particular harbor.....

We will be there!!!!
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body,
but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up,totally worn out, and proclaiming,
“Wow, what a ride!!!”

I'm looking for a deal ... there are several motels near where Bill lives. Not as close as Market Center, but not too far.

Wherever ya'll stay, go EAST and NORTH ... not SOUTH ... There really are no places I'd recommend close to/within walking distance of the venue. Remember this is the state fair grounds ... while the area is a lot better than 10 years ago, it's still not the safest place in the city. Just sayin'. :-)

I've called a couple of downtown hotels. They're supposed to get back to me. We'll see.

Your pal,

In November, I stayed at the Magnolia Hotel in Downtown. It's close to the venue and they have a full breakfast each morning.

Terri, they may give a group break.
