Labor Day Weekend-- Part 2: About Those Bar Dogs
SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 3
On the internet in the early morning and found out that Illinois evidently had our own ribbon highway, like that one stretch of Oklahoma's Route 66. And it went from DeKalb to Waterman, Illinois.
Enjoyed Bob Stroud taking his listeners, the Stroud Crowd, back 40 years to a summer I remember well, 1977, on Chicago's WDRV, 97.1 FM from 7 to 10 a.m..
We had planned to go to Cabana's on Pistakee Lake to see the band, but it was way too crowded, so we went to Oak Park Lounge nearby on the same lake. This is an original bar on the Chain of Lakes, dating back to the 1890s and a favorite of ours. We also got to see (and feed) the bar dog, Bomber. If there is another more spoiled animal in the world than a bar dog, I'd like to know? He has us all trained well.
We then went to the PLAV (Polish Legion of American Veterans) in McHenry for Bloody Marys and last stop was at Sunnyside in Johnsburg.
