Used to be some great Blues clubs in Chicago (where I hail from) but anymore
the few remaining are over-commercialized jokes and the others have become
Starbucks and cookie shops (per the wording of Kramer in reference to the
mom-and-pop shops going away).

<sigh> If only there were someplace to get out *to*... maybe
Bubba and Billy Joe are slugging it out again at the Silver
Dollar... that's always a good show.

We used to have some very cool, dark, smoky blues clubs
around in the 80s... then blues got popular with Gen-X-ers
and it all moved downtown to clean, glitzy, neon-infested
juke joints...

I might point out that some off-topic threads have gone
private and ended up being the beginning of more than one
new friendship...
