Manitowoc is so small, convenience is a given.  Lookin' for a few amenities, reasonable price.

Hey to those in the Midwest, and on a tight budget....
if you want an INSANELY cheap bus ticket from Chicago to Milwaukee (and other points from the Midwest....) Read the article below.  Amazing fare. about $38 from Detroit to Milwaukee!

*************************************

No-frills line does Midwest on the cheap

Bus firm gets many to Chicago for less than $30, some for $1

Fellow travelers, they arrived at the Downtown sidewalk in ones and twos: a student, an architect, a social worker, a married couple.

There was nothing to greet them: no majestic terminal, no blue-suited conductors, not even a ticket counter. Yet, these travelers promptly showed up to this designated spot when the schedule said they should -- lured by a new online-based company promising bus fares as low as $1 to cities throughout the Midwest.
"You can't really beat the fares," said 25-year-old Trisha Logan, preparing to return to Chicago after spending a recent weekend with her parents in Indianapolis.
Logan paid all of $2.50 for her roundtrip ticket.
Meet Megabus, a line headquartered in the United Kingdom that began service here last month and hopes to shake up the industry by applying a discount-airline approach to intercity bus travel.

You got it!

Meet & Greet?  Let me know about it.  (That last line sounds much better in Steve Martin's Wild & Crazy Guys voice)

Due to playing the last two weekends in Wisconson and Rockford, I'm staying home with my two daughters. I would love to see the band play again. I've be anxious for a House of Blues or Hard Rock show in Chicago. If the people that run Rockford's On The Waterfront were intelligent they would book The Romantics, but I'm sure tomorrow that we will find out they hired the thrid drummer from the fifth version of the Guess Who for 60k to play the festival.

Pat Benatar, Cheap Trick, Lonnie Brooks, Ted Nugent (Main Stage)

All the smaller venues haven't been announced, they are usually not all signed up until mid july and even early Aug.

That's the Big Line Up for Rockford's OTW festival.

Right now we have a High Pollen count in Rockford that is casuing Havok on my kids allergies, but that should pass before Waterfront. I left out Dicky Betts for all of you Almond Brothers fans. He didn't get a main stage, but can still make the 6 string sing.
