All That Jazz!!
Yes, everyone, it was suggested and as such it is happening. We are going to see the ALEX DEAN
QUARTET at The Pilot
for an afternoon of Jazz! One of our original centrally-located-rain-hail-or-apocalypse hang-outs which we have sort of neglected for about 2 years. Wow, time flies!
Mind you, their Jazz afternoons are an institution that has been there for at least since I have been going there which is about 12 years. Albeit it could be even more since the bar has been open since 1945! Sign up quick as space is limited!
So, the only tricky part is this, the music starts at 3:30pm but I would like us to get there by 2:30--2:45pm to get a table and make new friends! Now, we can either try to get a table near the actual quartet or we can one in their side room, where you can HEAR the quartet but also chat and socialize although due to the angle we would not have a direct line of sight. Also, come early, the later you come the lesser the chances of you getting seating. Can't be helped as the place does not take reservations and it can packed. So POST
what you prefer on your RSVP comments.
Either, it will be a great time if you are a fan of Jazz.
Remember to look for our mascot Leo The Loon (I am serious, ;-), in case you can't find us!
See you there,
