Riley and I enjoyed a relaxing, entertaining evening as we were in attendance for the first Mandays of the summer at Franchesco's in Rockford.

What are Mandays? It's an event designed with men in mind (though women are cordially invited). Every Monday through the summer, $10 gets you on the patio to enjoy a sampling of a fine line of alcoholic beverages and hor d'oeuvres with fine cigars also available for purchase. Riley tried two of the three, as did I. No cigars for either of us last night. Maybe down the road.

The sampling this week was from the Beam family of bourbons. Those in attendance also got an education on the creation and production of the spirit and exactly what technically makes bourbon.

Good conversation, great weather and game 3 of the Stanley Cup Final on the big screen. We also were handing out WROK 90th anniversary swag as well. A nice evening in all.
