One of my part-time consulting trips took me to Chicago this week. Last night, I went to The House Of Blues. The music was absolutely great. If any of you folks find yourself in Chicago with a free evening on your hands, you might want to check this place out. Who says you can't have a little fun while earning a little extra spending money.

Chicago has some really great blues places. Of course, everybody is entitled to their own opinion, but I wouldn't think the House of Blues would be the best Chicago has to offer. It's kind of the equivalent of a chain restaurant, like Planet Hollywood or the Hard Rock Cafe. They're good and maybe even great, but usually so crowded and so focused on show that the atmosphere is less than the best. Try Kingston Mines the next time you go. Or do what we did; ask a cabby to take you to the bluesiest, not the best, the bluesiest blues place in the city.
