Time to lighten things up a bit here .. so I met up with the boys at …. where else but Portillio’s. Then we hopped in the van and made our way to Zanies in St. Charles. One of my favorite comedians was there tonight .. Emo Phillips. He’s a little off the wall .. but that’s what I like about him. Dan had never seen him before .. so I knew he was in for a treat. My brother was with too .. and we see Emo every time he’s in town. The show was lot’s of fun .. and afterward we shared some time with Emo .. that’s when the real fun begins. You see .. Emo is originally from this area .. so I’ve got to know him over the years. I had a couple of things for him to sign .. and then a special request. My good friend Greg .. who now lives in Vegas, is a huge fan. So .. we dial up his number and have Emo sing “Happy Birthday” to him on the voice-mail. I’m not quite sure what his reaction was when he got the message .. but I’m sure it will be something he’ll remember for a long time ..
