Friday, October 8, 2010, I presume ... :think: :think: :wink:

Perhaps Cheryl could use her 1-800-CALL-Oprah for us and get us tickets .. :shifty: :wink: :P Afterall, Oprah sure gives great gifts away on her show ... Perhaps, it will be a marathon show and great Nike Schwag give-aways ... :shock: :shifty: :pray: :pray: :pray:

And, yes, when asked about who's your running club on the registration ... I put down ... http://www.runningmania.com ... :shifty: :P :wink:

I'd love to go to a Jazz club...wanted to go last year, but was chicken of the big city.
We are staying until Tuesday, so maybe in our plans this time.
Will everything (shopping and clubs) be open on the Monday (Columbus Day)?

Jill

This is a blues club (http://www.kingstonmines.com/flash/main.html), not jazz, but I can tell you it is fantastic and one heck of a good time.

See you there Andy! Though I think I'll be seeing you numerous times in between - Mississauga, ATB.

Oh, did you decide on the Travelodge?

I tried the Best Western, but it was booked Sat night - so the Travelodge it was!
