Known for a blend of jazz, pop, and rhythm and blues, the "Eddie Butts' free concert at the Whitnall Park golf clubhouse, 6751 S. 92nd Street, this Friday, July 17th at 6:30 to 8:30pm is going to be one of the top performances of the summer, especially when one considers the beautiful views overlooking Mallard Lake, 150 free State Fair tickets given away with the purchase of a fish fry ( baked option available) and an opening show compliments of the "Seniorgee Dancers" at 6pm. The fish fry is served from 4-8pm and reservations may be made, though not required, at (414) 425-1810. Enjoy!
Though I've never really seen a live air show, I think I would really like to take the kids and go see this one starting at 10am until about 3:30pm on Saturday or Sunday. Of course I'll invite the wife, but I honestly don't know if that's her cup of tea or not. (She gets motion sickness everytime she flies.) I think just to view the top-notch U.S. Air Force Thunderbird Jet Demonstration Team and U.S. Army Golden Knights Parachute Team would certainly be worth the effort. I mean the price is right and there's even a "Kids Zone" with inflatable rides, bounce houses, and games. I understand numberous vendors will be on hand if we get hungry or thirsty. Bradford Beach will have live music going for the 5th annual Bradford Beach Jam starting at 5pm on Friday, July 24th and running through 5pm, Sunday, July 26th. Come to think of it, if I take my kids to the Air Show maybe one will want to be a pilot someday or maybe even an astronaut.
