Trying to decide on what to have for dinner I grabbed my camera bag equipped with my Canon 1D Mark IV bodies along with my awesome 85mm f/1.2L & 35mm f/1.4L lenses. Now you are probably wondering why I would take my photo equipment to go eat, well I wanted to get some shot’s of piano legend Jimmy Binkley while enjoying the best burger in town at Sky Harbor Steakhouse. A longtime friend and former baseball team mate Daryl Klusendorf and his family operate one of the best restaurant’s in Peoria. Treat yourself to a fabulous evening of fine food and listening to a true Peoria icon. Trust me when I say you will have the time of your life. Jimmy entertains on Wednesday and Saturday nights from 7-11pm.
