Wine & Jazz on a Summer night

On a warm summer night, a glass of Wine and soulful Jazz could be the best option of winding down from a long day at work and in the company of other fun members a fun evening. We are going back to one of our favorite Jazz venues.

On the historic U Street Corridor, JoJo restaurant and bar features live nightly music and a menu of classics that can be paired with an extensive wine list. This place has a vibe that is reminiscence of the hip 1920s with a contemporary flair.

Flavorful cuisine, a relaxed quaint vibe and nightly live music set the tone, which provide a refreshing escape from the mundane and monotonous.

We are going back again to this U St gem, where quiet relaxed evenings slowly morph into a vibrant scene, as night descends, and some of DC's best known Jazz groups stop by to perform, which makes a long tiring day of work feels adequately compensated and re-energized.

The Jazz band on the night will be the Colie Williams Show. Colie’s musical style uniquely blends sounds of sultry jazz and classic R&B.

Due to limited seating available for our group at this venue, Please manage your RSVP responsibly. (There is no extra charge for the Jazz, and each one only pays for their drinks and dinner)

    A great night, with a fun group of music lovers. As always the music & vibe at Jojo never disappoints and it always ends up as a relaxing day after a long day at work.

    Thank you Rodolfo. One other question = are the 14 people listed "waiting" shown in the order that they requested a reservation? Sorry for all the questions, but I am new to this group.

    • Rodolfo

      Donna, If you are viewing the list using the meetup mobile app, then the order is by alphabetical names. If you are viewing the meetup website through a web browser the order is by the date the reservation was requested, which is what matters. It is a Good question because the mobile app makes it confusing to know the order on the wait list !

    How does the host of this event handle getting people from the wait list to "going" status? If I haven't heard anything by now, does that mean I will not be able to go?

    July 15, 2014

    • Rodolfo

      When a spot open ups the next person on the wait list is moved to the "going" list. If a person on the wait list has a consistent history of dropping out closer to the event date or being a no show, I would prefer to pick others who have been more responsible in managing their RSVP or a New member. If there are any late cancellations today or tomorrow, I will post a comment for those on the wait list to let them know of the open spot knowing that many wait listed members may have already made other plans on may not check their email.

      We had 3 members drop out today, which I do hope have genuine reasons for dropping out given that there have been so many others on the wait list wanting to attend this event.

    I have send a confirmation reminder to some members that would be attending their first event with our group as we have a large number of members on the wait list and therefore, We would like to minimize any late cancellations and avoid no show. Thanks to those that have responded, and those who haven't I would assume your interest of attending may have changed and hence give your spot to someone else on the wait list.

      My friend sherry and i are attending. I responded yesterday but didnt know whether u got my message

      July 11, 2014

    • Rodolfo

      Steve, Looking forward to seeing you and Sherry for your first event with our group.

      July 11, 2014

  • Rodolfo

    The usual reminder to all those members that have RSVP'd, Please update your RSVP if your plans of attending has changed, or likely to change as we do have a lot of members on the wait list who would like to attend. Late cancellations or no shows, would deny a spot for others on the wait list to attend.

      Rodolfo, thanks for the reminder and give my spot to anyone . I can attend the next one. I was out of the country and now in NY and I am afraid that I will be too tired on wed.
