Ramblings From The Road
Happy Fall. So, I've been on the road with the wonderful people that make up the crew and musicians of "Matters of the Heart"... minus my beloved Dick Gallagher. Get better, Dickie.
We've been to Columbus, Ohio and Minneapolis, Minnesota. While Columbus had some very fine restaurants and wonderful audiences... the hotel left much to be desired. Nice people but I'll leave it at that. Minneapolis on the other hand is a vital, vibrant city. Such an active downtown. My houses were smaller than Columbus but the people were equally as enthusiastic about the show. And, the hotel was sublime. The Crowne Plaza Northstar. The bartender Jim is well worth a drink in the bar.
You know, the women of Minneapolis kinda look like farmer, hippie, intellectuals from Berkeley. Why in the tundra are so many women wearing open toe shoes? Those shoes being Birkenstocks. All in all I had a wonderful time and would love to investigate the central north of America. It has a pretty interesting vibe. We did have one sour moment in a Bucca da Beppo. The hostess was a controlling condescending ignorant ex-cheerleader, punishing us for being late by 15 minutes and not seating us for half an hour while our table sat there empty. I complained bitterly. So don't bother with the Bucca da Beppo in Minneapolis.
Anyway, I urge you to vote. That's it for now.
