Sharon is 62 and came all the way from Ashtabula, Ohio just to see Paul McCartney.  “Well, and my son,” she added.  (“I’m just a bonus,” her son said.) Sharon was among the first dozen of people scurrying across the south end lawn and she ended up just shy of the front row.  The only thing between her and Paul now is two very tall men.

In what could turn into a case of careful what you wish for, Cheesie’s is saying “Show us yours, we’ll show you ours” as they serve up their “Sexy Tots.”

A big pile of tater tots, covered in bacon and cheese sauce, it will help replenish any sodium (and then some) Lolla goers may lose in sweat.  

Cheesie’s Pub and Grub is located in Chowtown North for Lolla and then in its food truck around town.  More info at their website here.
