Won't be windy in St. Louie

Meet me at Schlafly's Taproom, east of Chaifetz, 2100 Locust, and I'll have a brew or 2 with you!
Wine afficionados will enjoy vinyards and tastings southwest of town along the Missouri river.

I really dont think that my first 2 dead shows could have gone any better. I would just like to say thanks so much again to all the people that helped me out up there and helped make this experience so wonderfull for me. Thanks to ch1narider for helping me out with rides and a place to stay, and to Grayfolded for the ticket for 5/4. Thanks to Darkshire for being so awesome and giving me your extra 5/5 ticket so I could miracle mine, and for staying with me until I got back on the bus to St. Louis on 5/6. I hope to see you again very soon (and I think I will.)

Im sure that I will see you all again, hopefully sooner than later. Lets all hope for another tour very very soon.

Peace and Love,

THANK YOU! for a real good time!

Had a great time at the two shows in Chicago...Rosemont's finest seemed much more tolerant than the last time (93) I was there, cept for the EXTREME pat down at the gate the first night...basicly patted me down as though I was about to be arrested...all the way down the leggs etc!
Even though I had an excellent time, the venue itself pretty much sucks for accomodations (bathrooms, vending, acoustics, etc.) but has a great bunch of business around it, liquor store, target, 24 hour restaraunts etc that I didn't have to drive anywhere after arriving on the 4th.
Hoping for an outdoor ampitheater tour!
