Checking Out

Chicago, Chicago that toddling town
Chicago, Chicago I'll show you around
I bet your bottom dollar you'll have some fun in Chicago, Chicago
the town that Billy Sunday couldn't shut down

On State Street that great street I'd just like to say
They do things you won't see on Broadway
You'll have the time, the time of your life
I saw a man who danced with his wife
In Chicago, Chicago my home town

So tomorrow I'm heading to Chicago, AKA the Windy City, AKA Chi-town for a little R & R. While there I'm planning on hitting up a few spots, including the brick and mortar store front for online record store #1 Dusty Groove and the old Chess Records building, currently being lovingly maintained by the Blues Heaven Foundation. Of course I'm not gonna leave all you out in the cold (although I'm sure I'LL be cold in Chicago), so keep your eyes open this weekend for some appropriately themed music. I'll kick it off a day early with some Sinatra. Here's hoping you're right Frank!

Frank Sinatra - Chicago (live) : Sinatra And Sextet: Live In Paris
