Tulips on Troost Avenue - Beyond the Blues Benefit, 6/11 at BB's Lawnside

As regular readers may recall, I'm a fan of Troost Avenue, the historic avenue that scrappily holds on to her beauty and vitality, despite a Kansas City that sometimes wants to forget her like a former lover.

I'm also a huge fan of BB's Lawnside, the greatest road-house blues joint in the state of Missouri.

Next Sunday, you have the opportunity to support the ambitious Tulips on Troost project (can you picture 100,000 tulips in bloom on one avenue?) at the same time you are enjoying great blues music at BB's - all for only $10! You'll see the legendary Danny Cox, as well as Tut and the Soul Sensations.

Who's in? I'll buy the first bucket of PBRs.

(Update! The show runs from 4-7, and you can buy advance tickets here. Father's Day is the following weekend, so the show won't interfere with your time to make a collect call home . . .)

Don't think I will be making a collect call, but the 3 of us are in. What time are you showing up?

They don't open up until 4 - so that's about the time I think we'll show up.
