Please join us for another great evening of Wine, Jazz and Soul at CJ's
-- The live jazz will begin at 7 PM and run until 10-10:30 PM, and so it won't be too late of an evening.
-- The live jazz performance will feature the great vocalist Sandy Dowe with the Tony Campbell Jazz Surgery band and other musical guests.
-- CJ's will be unveiling some new summer menu items in addition to the normal menu which includes everything from steak/chops, fish, chicken, wraps/burgers, and soul food.
-- There will also be some new wines and specialty cocktails, including a variety of mojitos perfect for the summer!
-- Of course, it is also fine if you prefer beer or not drinking at all. You'll still have a great time meeting new people while enjoying live jazz.
And if you're relatively new to Meetup, this would be a nice event to attend to meet lots of people -- regardless of how long you decide to stay.
This event brings different Meetup groups together -- as we also welcome a number of new people to their very first Meetup!
CJ's is located one block from the historic Klavon's Ice Cream which began in 1923. Klavon's is open until 9 PM on Wednesdays during the summer. And perhaps we could arrange some groups to go over together. So if you've never been to CJ's or Klavon's, you could hit both in one night.
With so many people in the Meetup, sometimes it can be challenge, especially for recent members when attending busy art galleries, arts festivals, and performances at large venues such as the Benedum and Heinz Hall. So this 'Wine, Jazz, and Soul' series seeks to bring lots of people together which would also help with spotting members at future events at busy venues.
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 may be pre-ordered for this special Meetup event! 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 although there will be some new summer menu items.
We hope everyone will be able to make it for some great jazz, food, wine/cocktails, and conversation. Of course, it is also fine if you prefer beer or not drinking at all. You'll still have a great time meeting some new people while enjoying the live jazz.

Parking CJ's is located in the Strip District near 29th and Penn Avenue, about one block from Klavon's Ice Cream. CJ's has their own parking lot and there is also plenty of street parking in this area of the Strip. Also, many Meetup members will be arriving before the usual CJ's customers, so there should be no problem parking.
