#141 Chicago Blues Scene

My original itinerary called for visiting three Blues Clubs, two after full days of site-seeing, and one for lunch.  Ultimately, though, we only made it to Kingston Mines.  (The other 2 were Buddy Guy's and House of Blues.)  


We hit up Kingston Mines after Hamilton, on a Friday night.  It was dark, it was loud, it was crowded, and it was Blues-y.  Anyone who knows me, knows why this ended up being our only stop on the Blues Tour.

Kingston Mines has a kitchen, and I did eat some really good Mac 'n Cheese, since we hadn't had dinner yet.  But ultimately was too loud and crowded for me to really have any kind of fun at all.  I am not a club kinda girl.  That said, next time I'm in Chicago I really want to hit up House of Blues for dinner, and Buddy Guy's for a lunch show!
