Friday, May 8th, 2009
Three signs of spring will be visible next week: Trillium, Morels and LEGS INN opening Friday, May 15, to begin the 2009 season. This year marks the 23rd year for George and Kathy Smolak of Leg’s Inn to serve guests at their historic landmark. Sons Mark and Christopher are also participating in the management.
This season is also historic in respect to the music. Legendary Jelly Roll Blues Band (a favorite with local folk May 24, and July and August Sundays) and local folk artist Kirby (Fridays in July and August) will perform this summer for the 20th season. Special artist Allen Gerber from Chicago, sponsored by Blissfest Organization, will perform on Saturday May 16. This is boogie-woogie of the highest order that will make you jump on the dance floor, so get to Hearthside Grove and enjoy the trillium-lined scenic drive to Cross Village and have some fun.
