Live Swing Jazz,socializing @The Drake

  • Dec 21, 2013 · 8:15 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

We are going to take you back to a nice place that is good for socializing. The drake has been around since 1920 and is the home of their 2nd floor lounge called The Palm Court.

There is a nice swing jazz band that plays there every two weeks called THE FLAT CATS.

Here is a sampling of them playing "hit the road jack"

They have been known to make people feel like they can dance.

Sometimes they mix their swing genre type music with other music as well.

We will get together on Saturday Night December 21st for a night of swing jazz, socializing and hanging out with some friendly people. We will start to gather at 8:15 PM. The band will play shortly thereafter.

They usually play 3 musical sets with breaks in between. We will have about 60 spots reserved for us. Please take turns sitting down.

This will be in the area to the right when you first walk into the palm court.

There is a dress code. Please dont wear gym, torn jeans or wife beaters.

The drake has a coat check

which can be found at the front desk.

They have told me we can only have a specific number of RSVP's and once we get there I must close the attendance and put people on a waiting list. I must comply with their rules.

Come ready to socialize and have fun.

There is no drink special.

Drinks are at their normal prices

RSVP Limit 140 as per request of venue

    In my communication with sr levels of management of the drake, they asked ne if I want to make people wait for a table when we already have a reservatoon and some other stuff I care not to share. I dont appreciate that and so to avoid a fiasco I will go meet with them to get their shit together. If they are still being idiots we have a backup plan that still involves live music
