late on Saturday

Late on Saturday nights, there is an open mic venue at Bill's Music in Richardson. Sometimes when we are winding down at The Oak Cliff Circle of Poets (around 10:00), and if we have had enough coffee, a few of us will pile into a couple of vehicles, and head North to Bill's. It's about a 20 min drive, but they don't usually get started until nearly 11:00. The crowd is mostly younger, and it's a cool change of pace. The downside is that it's pretty tough to wake up on Sunday mornings.

All of the below photo's were taken on a couple of Saturdays in April 2003.
