What is a power (%^# cover band? Is this part of gay pride?

BTW, apparently I can’t spell ^)@& out like you can because it won’t post.

Why the double standard?

OMG, I’m laughing so hard (no pun intended). I think he meant power-Rock, but I could be mistaken, especially if they’re going for the more butch-lesbian crowd. It is Iron Mullet, after all.

I’m certain he meant power rock…..The sad part is the lack of proof reading before posting.

Mr Watson, you are paid to submit content as a professional. Please live up to that standard. If you can’t, I will gladly take your place……At least then I can give the readers a reason for giving glowing review, but only 2 stars.

I didn’t realize Atkins Park was making it even more scary with their latest health inspection score of 70. =:o I love Atkins Park, but they really need to step it up from that. Seriously.
