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
