    Jon and Daitra told us that they were looking for a quick little getaway. They’d gotten a babysitter lined up, and were looking for a place close to their home in St. Peter.

    They did a Google search for live music in southern Minnesota, somehow found the New Moon Trio website, liked the sound of our third set, booked a room at the Archer House, ate dinner at The Tavern, caught our performance at The Cow, and were last seen heading to the Rueb-N-Stein. Heads on beds accomplished.

    So, are there lessons for the CVB in this story? Hmmm, I’ll follow up with Hayes over a beer. I will note that Jon and Daitra said that Northfield could use a place that had dancing on Friday and Saturday nights.

    And Jon, I have four words, or phrases, for you, “Partick’s”, “John Meyer”, “minnow”, and “Big W”.

    Wow…. do you mean to tell me that one little blog entry brought tourism dollars into town? That’s a measurable impact!

    Tracy- Does this mean we will have to pay a commission to post here, now, since the blog is now a documented advertising firm for Northfield?

  4. OK, Ross. St. Peter, a big deal. But I am waiting for St. Paul–then you will know you have made it!

    Susan –

    Frankly, I’d be happy to have hundreds more visitors just like Jon and Daitra. They were enthusiastic, appreciative, and a lot of fun.

  6. Reminds me of when Jesse James’ great-grandson, Judge Ross, came to Froggy Bottoms, fortified himself with Scotch and sang karaoke for the first time. Visitors can have a lot of fun in town and I am glad Jon and Daitra enjoyed their stay.
