I would take BB King to Adventure Park, to play some ski ball with, or laser tag. You cant really play the blues, or play the blues better after a good game of laser tag.

If B.B. were to come with me, I’d take him to a dinner place fit only for a king– my dining room. Give him some of that good home cookin and then head out to Soundstage, a LOCAL music store, and all of us, staff and Legend himself could have a good ole blues jam sesh. Talk about dying happy

I’d take him to Visalia’s Fox Theater to see the show. AND, I’d make sure he was up close to see Strange Vine—a fine example of some of the best Fresno has to offer. (Though, if I *really* got to hang out with B.B., I’d probably wanna take him to some of the places people mentioned above. I has been too long since my last Chicken Pie Shop visit!

A dinner fit for a King.

He’s the King. He’ll know what to do! :)

Hanging at the Fox Theater is just Fine. So much history there! Awesome architecture and I’m sure he’d feel comfy there!
One of my other favorite places I’d like to share is Mooney Grove Park! (or Mooney’s Grove as the locals call it) I’m sure he would Really Enjoy the Museum, the pond, the peacocks and the beautiful fall weather we have here in the Valley!
Pick Me! My Husband and I are big B.B. KING Fans and I <3 STRANGE VINE!
