The $9.00 Martini. Or, I Got to Hear Some Great Music!

So, I managed to make the trip out to Mt. Prospect to see Taggart. And it was definitely time well spent. He's just so much fun to be around, and his stage presence is infecting with as much fun as he *obviously* has while playing that guitar and singing his bluesy heart out.

But, really people? A $9.00 martini? Eek. And that was the cheapest one on the list. Of course, I HAD to try one. And while I'd definitely partake of one again - I would *not* spend a whopping $9.00. Uh uh. Nope. C'mon, the only alcohol in it was some sort of citrus stuff and Midori. The rest? Pineapple juice & OJ.

Maybe it was the fact that they had the actual cop car from The Blues Brothers somehow precariously suspended high above us that made the drink so expensive? Or the endless supply of other movie paraphenalia? Hmm.

Anyhow, it was a good time. He still, amazingly, looks the same (minus the tangle of curls down his back) - which, with the haircut? Makes him look like Vincent D'Onofrio. Honestly.

Am I the only one who SEES this resemblance?!? Hehe.
