(College) Kids Say the Darnedest Things About Famous Jazz Venues

Earlier this week, I was talking with some students at the college about my gig tonight. I explained that the annual event recreates the atmosphere of the famous Cotton Club, with lots of people in period attire, highly skilled swing dancers, and so on... KID: I want to go to the Cotton Club! ME: Well, I'm afraid you'd have to do some time travel and snag a flight to New York City in order to do that. KID: It's not in Dallas? I thought the Cotton Club was in Dallas. ME: You're thinking of the Cotton Bowl.
