Wine, Jazz, and Soul ... at CJ's

  • Jan 23, 2014 · 6:00 PM

Please join us for a fantastic evening of Wine, Jazz and Soul at CJ's

While the live jazz with the great Roger Humphries' band normally begins at 8 PM, CJ's is putting together something special for our group so we can all get together beforehand and enjoy some great food and wine specials.

And as a special bonus, Courvoisier will be sending a promotional team to do an interactive presentation featuring Courvoisier Rose & Gold with complimentary tastings and giveaways. This is a new product, so we'll be 'testers' for these unique drinks which have been a generating a lot of interest:

"Courvoisier Rose - a first of its kind cognac innovation. An elegant blend of Courvoisier Cognac and premium French red wine grapes, its refreshing and smooth taste makes it perfect for any occasion."

"A first of its kind, Courvoisier Gold is a light and exquisite cognac experience that is crafted with a delicate blend of Moscato wine from the South of France and Courvoisier’s signature cognac."

To enhance the exclusiveness of the event and the time we have before the lively jazz begins, CJ's will offer the group a special 6-8 PM menu with items that could be quickly served such as salads, sandwiches, and finger food.

Please note that after 8 PM, the usual CJ's customers will be there for the great live jazz so all of the food will be off the normal menu.

In terms of the great $4-$6 wine/glass specials, this is also fun and exciting. As CJ's considers the possibility for expanding their wine list, this is our chance to offer some thoughts.

And a number of these suggestions will actually be pre-ordered for this special Meetup event!  Ideally, CJ's would like a couple new whites, zinfandels, other reds, or moscato. So there could be 6-8 different wines ordered in advance for this event based on our suggestions.

So if you have any great value or unique wines in the $10-$15 per bottle range that you'd like us to consider, please let us know. To offer any suggestions or thoughts on wines for this event, please visit the Discussion board http://www.meetup.com/Art-lovers/messages/boards/thread/[masked]

The current CJ's menu includes everything from steak/chops, fish, chicken, wraps/burgers, and soul food. Check it out http://www.cjsinthestrip.com/page6.html

We hope everyone will be able to make it before 8 PM for some mingling, great food, and the Courvoisier presentation before the live jazz begins.

Please note that the first jazz set featuring the great Roger Humphries runs from about 8-9 PM while the second set runs from about 9:30-10:30 PM. And the live jazz continues until midnight.

Also, for music and background about the great Roger Humphries (who has played all over the world with Ray Charles, Horace Silver, Dizzy Gillespie, Stanley Turrentine, George Benson, Freddie Hubbard, Nancy Wilson, and many others) who will be performing, please visit http://rogerhumphries.com

    Really neat doing the Courvoisier sampling. The staff did their best to try to keep up with all of us. Terrific jazz, really enjoyed the musicians on the open stage. Sitting at a table with friends yet mingling with many gave us all a chance to party. Thanks, Mark, for a winner of an idea.

    It is 8:30PM on Thursday Jan 23 and I am at my desk and received an email about tonight at CJ's.I am so sorry but I thought it was next week and we were on the list. We were really looking forward to tonight. I am so disappointed and so sorry and I hope everyone got to attend that wanted to. I really am sorry about this. We always go if we RSVP for something. If only I had looked at my email earlier.

    Ok thanks Mark. I'll just plan to come for the 8 pm show. See you there. You are doing a great job putting all of these wonderful events together!

  • aimee

    I won't be able to get there until a little later-how long will this run?

    January 23, 2014

    • Mark

      No problem, Aimee ... the jazz runs until midnight or so. The first live jazz set runs from 8-9 PM and then there is a brea before the second set from 9:30-10:30 PM. And there should still be people from the Meetup although a few may leave after the first set. So you should be able to find people in the group. Or you can ask one of the waitresses or bartenders to point us out.

      January 23, 2014

  • Mark

    We still have a lot of people on the Waiting List, so please take a moment to update your RSVP if you don't think you can make it.

    they have a small parking lot but can we park on the
    street if there is an over-flow?

    January 16, 2014

    • Mark

      Yes, there is free street parking in this section of the Strip District which isn't generally as busy so people should be able to find parking within a block or two of CJ's. For anyone using public transportation, buses 54,86,87,88,91 all have stops near Liberty & 29th or Penn & 29th within a block from CJ's

  • Marti

    I'm on the wait list...Hope I get lucky!

    January 17, 2014

  • Mark

    To give a little update, we now have people on the waiting list. This is our first event at CJ's and we expect to be announce a follow-up event at CJ's in the near future which would involve another winemaker/company with drinks for us to try. Since this is our first event at CJ's -- where they are doing something special for the Meetup in the 6-8 PM timeframe which includes bringing in extra staff, etc. before the usual customers come in -- we'd like this to be fun and successful. We have people on a waiting list, so if for some reason you can't make it, please update your RSVP.

    January 16, 2014

  • Mark

    because everyone so far has said they'd rather order off the menu, we won't have the buffet this time. While the full CJ's menu is available after 8 PM, the 6-8 PM special menu for our group will consist of lite bites, sandwiches, and other things that can quickly served before the Courvoisier presentation and live jazz. Then if people are really hungry, they can order off the full menu later on.
