Darlene, Angie and I made plans to see Big Tobacco & the Pickers, a six piece country band that play "hurting essential country ballads and old time honky tonkin', hard drinkin' classics". They were playing at the Dakota Tavern.
We met at Darlene's (she lives in my 'hood). Here's her 21 year old kitty, Rover.
We had supper at Squirrely's on Queen Street W. I had curried chicken and rice.
Here we are ... me, Angie and Darlene.
After we ate, we walked to Dakota's.
The band started about 10:30. They were really good, playing old country songs by the likes of Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard, Ray Price, etc. plus original tunes. I'd check 'em out again.
The place was jammed! We got there just before the rush and got a table.
