The Mane Event - 2009 Remembered

Here's what I wrote last year about the Mane Event - You can tell the weather was a lot cooler then than it is this year.

Another year gone by and here I am again at the Mane Event, the big block party in Arlington Heights the night before the Arlington Million. We sat on a ledge in back of the stage and could definitely hear the band.

In honor of the event, I wore my Arlington Race Track cap and an Arlington Million tee shirt under my jacket. It was a little chilly for August, but the weather has been strange lately.

The DH and I had a great time singing along with the music, even dancing some. On my menu was a pulled pork sandwich, a slice of cheese pizza, pop and a huge chocolate chip cookie.

What kind of doings are in your neighborhood lately?

PS - We'll see what's on my 2010 menu.


  1. LOL! Next to none!
    Our town does a downtown jam twice a month, but the people that go are scary...

  2. Later this month my town of Ypsilanti holds an annual "Frog Island Festival" with blues and jazz bands, ethnic foods all over the place, peeps dancing & having fun. It's a blast.

  3. Last weekend was the Italian Festival (La settimana italiana)in Littel Italy, Montreal and I volunteered to sell books for a publishing house ;) Met lots of authors, poets, and interesting people. And of course, FOOD! great Italian red wine and dessert, yum!
    In the summer we have lots of festivals and events. ;)
    P.S. love your short & to-the-point posts (Mine are not that short).
