Manilow-On the Road Again

Once again, the Manilow entourage will pack the trucks and head east for two concerts scheduled for Rochester, NY and Pittsburgh, PA. Another benefit (among many) of living on the east coast. Those of us living in the deep south yearn to be close to the hub of the Manilow action, or at least have the Manilow action come to us.

So here are my top ten reasons why Barry should venture down below the Mason Dixon line:
  1. The food-You can't beat that down home cookin' and Barry could benefit greatly from some chicken fried steak and mashed potatoes, grits and biscuits.
  2. The people-Southern hospitality is second to none.
  3. The accent-Not that we have one of course, although some would argue.
  4. The sweet tea-Every restaurant in the south serves sweet tea with unlimited refills (none of that green tea or bottled tea)
  5. The music-Some of the greatest musicians in the world hail from the south and would provide an opportunity for some killer jamm sessions.
  6. Yardsales and flea markets-These are great places to find some bargains and tons of fun (much more fun than shopping in Beverly Hills).
  7. College football-You can't beat college football in the south. It's an experience everyone needs to add to their "bucket list" (even if you're not a football fan).
  8. Front porches with swings and rocking chairs-There's nothing more relaxing that sitting on a front porch with some sweet tea on a Sunday afternoon.
  9. The smells-At any given time you can smell the jasmine in bloom, the cedar trees, fresh cut bermuda grass, and gulf breezes.
  10. Barbeque-Every southern state has it's own specialty, sauce and technique; it's a treat that you can only find in the south. Mmmmm good!

As Paula Deen would say,
"Come on down here, y'all!"
