You gotta love summertime. The heat, the humidity, the mosquitoes, and all the great concerts and shows that always seem to hit the road throughout the summer months.

The other day I was snooping on the web, to see who is out and about this summer, and stumbled across an 80s icon that is going to be in our own backyard this August.

Do the songs "Rich Girl", "Maneater", "I Can't Go for That", "Private Eyes", "She's Gone", "Out of Touch", and "Kiss on My" List ring a bell? They should, because they we all over the radio as the duo Hall and Oates blanketed the pop music charts with hit after hit from the mid-70s through the mid-80s.

Half of that legendary duo is planning a hit stop just two and a half hours south of Sioux Falls this August.

Daryl Hall, of Hall and Oates, is playing the Omaha Performing Arts Orpheum Theater on Tuesday night, August 15th at 7:30.

Joining Daryl that evening will be special guest Todd Rundgren. Todd's coming along to say "Hello It's Me" and "Bang on the Drum."

The pop duo of Hall and Oates had six number-one singles from six different multi-platinum albums throughout the mid-70s to mid-80s. They were the shiznick back in those days, and I imagine Daryl Hall will be belting out most, if not all of those big hits that night down in the Big O.

Tickets for his Omaha, Nebraska performance are on sale right now.

And should Daryl get the itch to "Make Your Dreams Come True" anytime soon here in Sioux Falls, we'll be sure to let you know right away.

Dives Worth a Drive in South Dakota, Iowa and Minnesota

Almost every small South Dakota town has a watering hole. It’s where the locals go to kick back a few brews and engage in conversation.

Some of these establishments are located in buildings almost as old as the town itself. There might be a fresh coat of paint on the walls or new vinyl on the booth seats, but the ambiance is still reminiscent of a good ol’ dive.

If you think a "dive" is all about the sketchy clientele, the smell of the Devil’s lettuce, and stale Grain Belt, you’d be wrong. Not every dive has a bad reputation.

What makes a dive, a dive?

A dive has character. Neon beer signs and local memorabilia adorn the walls.

You might find a pool table, dart board, and a few video lottery machines.

The bartender knows the regulars by name and they know what you drink.

Some dives don't even serve food except for bags of chips and pickled eggs that sit in a jar of brine on the bar.

Dives aren't fancy. You might see 70's-style wood panels on the walls and wobbly tables leveled with a folded napkin.

Finally, the bathrooms. The bathrooms in dives are in a class by themselves and could be a whole topic on its own. 

There are several small-town dives in our area with friendly faces, cheap booze with a burn, and even really good food! We use the term "dive" in the most affectionate way.

Here are some of the best and why you should go there.
