Diane and I will be hitting up what just has to be one of the longest running weekly parties in Des Moines, the Work Release Party at Gaslamp. I’m not sure when this event began, but it was decades ago with Chicago Rick being the house band in what was then the Blues on Grand. Jesse brought in soul food and from 4:30 to 7:30, the blues party was on. Chicago Rick passed away and the party was called the Chicago Rick Work Release Party. Today, local legend Bob Pace and his Dangerous Blues Band carries on the tradition. This is such a gem. Get down there and shake off the work week and get in your weekend mode properly. See you there!
