Quick Hits

- Poco reunited last weekend at the Stagecoach Music Festival in Indio, CA. Original members Richie Furay, Jim Messina and Timothy B. Schmit took the stage for the first time since Messina split to join up with Kenny Loggins and Schmit migrated to The Eagles. Ironically, Schmit's "other" band, The Eagles, was the headliner for this country festival last year. This year's marquee performers were Brad Paisley and Kenny Chesney. (Note: Chesney is scheduled to appear at the Sprint Center in Kansas City, MO on May 9.)

- One of the best restaurant values in Lawrence, KS is Jefferson's. This sports bar-like eatery is on the west side of Massachusetts Street between 7th and 8th. In addition to great bar food, it features decorated dollar bills stuck on the walls and ceilings.

- Only four hours remain in 24 on FOX. The series, which definitely re-found its stride this season, will conclude with a two-hour finale on May 18. A relocation to D.C. has helped the show, which was based in Los Angeles during the first six seasons. Next season's show will take place in New York. No word yet as to how Jack Bauer will find his way to Gotham.

- Another print publication bites the dust. This time it's Portfolio, Conde Nast's entry into the business magazine genre.

- Is there a more beautiful prime time show on HD than CSI: Miami? Each week the show makes me want to get on a plane and head to South Beach.
