Champaign Rock

After a riotous affair at The Hideout it was time for BITH to venture outside the comforts of Chicago. We picked up, packed up, and ventured out to Champaign-Urbana and the lovely campus of the University of Illinois. Which was inviting, endearing, and comforting. Oh how we were jarred and tossed back to memories of the good old college days. Fast food, fast women, fast brews, and short-term memory loss. Oh those days.

After settling at the Red Roof Inn...

And testing the beds...

We rolled into town early to grab some beers and spread the word.

The Illini Bar...

Then it was off to Mike N' Molly's, where our pals The Fresh Kills were up first.

Then we were up. The stage was a view inches off the ground and very intimate. Which we adore. We want to get to know the audience by sweating with em, dancing with em, and overall interacting with them.

Billy noodlin' while I look exhausted.

JigGsaw was last up. So fun! 

After the show we headed back to our room for some libations...


Then Makers Mark dreams.

And finally after having a wonderful time in Champaign-Urbana we headed to the Cracker Barrel on the way home...

Cracker Barreled.

Off to Milk Town, Wisconsin for beer, beer, LCD, beer, beer, and Bully.
