Bob the Bottle's Boy?

Dear editor:

On behalf of Chicago's music community, I'd like to congratulate Bob Mehr for being named the Reader's new Empty Bottle correspondent [The Meter, February 20]. The Bottle has been sorely underrepresented in the Reader (Peter Margasak promoted it only every other week), so it's refreshing to see Bob give the club its due in his first two columns. Now that he's secured the perks that accompany the Bottle beat (free beer, I'm guessing), I hope Bob will read the ads beginning on page two of Section Three and visit a few of the hundreds of other fine music venues in the Chicago area.
