Rockin' at the roadhouse

I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that the just-completed Happy Fun Weekend began with a rollicking show by the Jim Dyar Band at the nearly-famous Klub Klondike in Lakehead on Friday.

A roadhouse with dollar bills stapled to the ceiling. Steak and rib dinners. A beer on tap called “Leon’s Freon” in honor of the owner. Wood floors that have seen a lot of beer and tears spilled over the years. A poster in the men’s room featuring the backsides of four women in string bikinis in the back of a pickup with “Haulin’ Ass” underneath. A pool table and a shuffleboard table.

And – of course - the musical stylings of the Jim Dyar Band.

“What, no love on the ThomG blog?” Jim Dyar asked Monday.

I was simply waiting for photographic evidence of the good time that was had by all.

And a good time was had by all (photos courtesy of Big Kat Lou).
