Not to mention all the food!

"Taste of Polonium" would be a great name for a sushi restaurant at Picadilly Circus, London... you'd attrract plenty of Russians ;D

Crap jokes aside, it sounds like a good gig!

these are not big budget shows, but they are good though.
i guess what im getting at is that dont expect a big 4th of july show.
sunday nite has the biggest budget.
none of the shows will go for longer than 15 minutes.

I was there the past 2 years, what are you talking about??????

i was told not to surpass 15 minutes per sponsors request for this year. (im sure that will change). the sunday nite program really needs about 18 minutes, i dont like to shoot shells on top of each other.

last years saturday nite show went almost 13 minutes, sunday was about 18-19 minutes and monday was around 15-16 minutes.
there was a really bad accident there last year with kids racing.
some people sitting on the sidewalk got hit by the mustang that lost control.

I`m sorry man, I read it wrong..duh
15 mins isn`t bad at all, thats about all Navy Pier gives you on Wednesdays?

I wasnt around when that happened but I can believe it, there always racing on and off the highway in that neighborhood.
I`m sure theres going to be alot of cops this year.
