Any of you know if they have an evening cover charge? *never been*

I don't think they do.

Ha--Kansas! I graduated from Salina High, myself. I still miss the fireflies ...but not the chiggers.

I hope you guys have fun, wish I could be there.

Hototogitsu--if they have a cover, they won't start collecting until 10 or so and it's usually only a couple of dollars (not to mention easy to not pay if you've been there since 8 or so).

See ya'll there.

Oh, and y2karl, interesting that you're from KS as well. Chiggers are horrible, no doubt about it. Are chiggers "chiggers" everywhere, or is that just a midwest term? I guess I'll have something to do at work today after all.

I spent the last two years of high school in Kansas. Can't say I'm from there, though....

I'm sick (and the hangover doesn't help, oops). I doubt I'll be able to go tonight. Have fun, take lots of pictures.

Thanks for the link, but now what will I do at work? And I'm guessing that moving into Kansas for the last two years of high school is a hell all its own. At least it was a "city." I'm guessing you've heard of Blue Heaven and APO Records. If not, it's a fascinating place, probably not worth a visit to Salina, but cool either way. And the owner is an interesting guy.

the best thing for sickness is lots of vodka... or not. Sorry you can't make it.

Wish I could be there. Lawrence was always a good time.

Ah, Larry, the Austin of Kansas. If this had been 5 years ago, I'd be there.

hototogisu: I've been to the Taproom many times, there was never a cover. I don't think they even have a place for any bands to play. Be sure to check both upstairs and downstairs for people you know.

("upstairs and downstairs" meaning: ground floor and basement)

Looks like it is three nights in a row at the Taproom for me. I went to the Pink Nasty / Danny Pound show last night (fleacircus - bands have played there both upstairs and downstairs since before it was even the Taproom), MeFi meetup tonight, and I am working there tomorrow night. My poor liver.

Dang it, I'm just down the road in Manhattan but I missed the orginal meetup post and now it's too late to change plans. Please, somebody, if you do this again, drop me a note. If anyone's going to the show at the Granada next Friday, I'll be there - my cousin is in the band....

I hope someone is planning on a sign or something...Looking for "nerds" is only going to get me so far...

Rocketman will be wearing his metafilter shirt. We'll try to get there a little early and grab a big table.

Also, I have blond hair w/sideburns, and I'm already half in the bag, so I'll probably be loud.
