I’d like to thank John Nemeth for joining me at the Union Mission in Memphis. It was a dream come true to jam with this guy.
A gig at a Chicago homeless shelter reminded me of why I am a musician. It also reminded me about why I play the blues, and it enabled me to kick some at Fitzgerald’s the next night. Here we are stirrin it up. It’s been a labor of love over the years for the Fitzgerald family. A great room with a whole lot of musical history.

You know those favorite places you go to eat when you get to town? The best steak, burrito, seafood, pad thai, bbq, spaghetti, sushi, catfish or mullet. What ever floats yer dietary boat, the place you think of, as you ease into town? The PLACE?!? Know what I mean? Well, the PLACE for me in Chicago is the Cho Sun OK Restaurant. I know what yer gonna say “WHA? Chicago has the best steak houses, spaghetti and pizza in the USA!” True. But in Lincoln Park, these guys have been dishin out the most authentic Korean food for 30 years. And judging by the line out the door, they have got it goin on. I like the raw skate, swimming in a super heavy asian bbq sauce that would make Mr. Stubbs jealous. This is a journey into a culture that glorifies rotten cabbage. It don’t get no better than that.
Next time I will continue my research for the definitive pizza. Who knows?

“Serving The Finest Corned Beef Since 1954”
Sixty years of schlepping briskets, and smoked fish, and bagels, and chopped liver, and all things kosher, into this delicatessen and onto the pallets of midwesterners, has made Protzel’s an oasis. Their story reads like a hard working fairytale. This place is downright lovable. Got us on the road to Colorado!
So St Louis is a dozen hours from Denver. We did the math and we were seized by the ubiquitous wild hair. A last minute gig near Boulder was a good enough excuse spend a week long adventure in the Rockies. How bout some Rocky Mountain craft beer to get things rollin?
Caught the wild raspberries at just the right time
Healing Waters of the Great Spirit
With palms, bananas, and a huge rubber tree? In Colorado? Yup. Under a big ol greenhouse in Idaho Springs, Colorado is the so called Indian Hot Springs. The main pool is sourced by 105 degree mineral water coming out of the pipe in the corner. There’s also caves with small pools with water temperature of 114 degrees. This was sacred ground to the natives who called it Healing Waters of the Great Spirit.
I have been curious as to the cannabis shops in Colorado and how it all works. Pretty straightforward and simple. Flashing your ID gains entry to the “commissary”.
Of all the stores we went to, each had about a dozen strains ($80-$120 for a quarter oz.) and a smaller selection of concentrates. (Shatter or oil $40-$50 a gram). They also have lotions, creams, and a bunch of marijuana munchies.
In the first five months of 2015, the state’s pot-funded excise tax that collects money earmarked for school construction projects brought in $13.6 million.
Colorado begs to be walked upon and swam in.
Eldorado Canyon and Springs.
The water at Eldorado Springs is 82 degrees when it enters the pool. It takes 10,000 years for it to travel from where it falls to where it comes out of the mountain.

And that ain’t the half of it…
