nice work. to complete the pilgrimage you should have a few at the CC Club and head over to the uptown bar to see if bob stinson's mom is working.

Favorite memory of working at the Uptown: The first night the Replacements played at the Uptown. I was under the impression that my sons [guitarist Bob Stinson and bassist Tommy] just played in a little band that practiced in the basement. But that night, it was so busy that they had to stick me in the back door to make sure no one else was coming in, and I just thought, "Oh my god. I had no idea." Daisies were Bobby's favorite flower, and he brought me a big bunch of them. That was the first time that I knew they'd made it.
