There was a suggestion that we should take a trip to Missouri because Chuck Berry performs in a bar(?) there (somewhere) every Sunday night - we could get to MO maybe via Cleveland and the Rock and Roll hall of fame! I feel a road trip coming on. Someone added Graceland and I am sure that we could find an excuse to go to Nashville too.

What are the ingredients of longevity? What does it take to be amazing at 76 (Cohen) or 84 (Berry) - a song, a dance, a significant presence. How can we translate that into knitting? I know that there are some patterns out there that have an amazing following and there are designers who list thousands of fans. Is Kaffe Fassett still a major player in knitting and will he be doing shows and creating amazing work into his 80's - I wish he would come back to knitting - the quilters have had him long enough!
I think that designers, such as, Debbie New - "Unexpected Knitting" and Elizabeth Zimmerman are the innovators and entertain us in their own way - but we also need the equivalent of "song and dance." Who are the Cohens and Berry's of knitting?
Dinner? Maybe some tapas. This is bar food with a difference. Extend any of these recipes and you have a whole meal.
