Get your New Year’s off to a GREAT START, and join us at Chuy's in Uptown!

Chuy's is a FAMOUS Tex-Mex restaurant originating out of Austin, TX. And that means only one thing, mmm...mmm...good! For our VEGAN members, there are choices for you too - go here to see the menu -Vegan Menu

 Have lunch with us! Grab your uke and come out to start your New Year off right!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


We will have New Years Hats, noisemakers, goofy glasses -- All the things to celebrate the New Year!

Not only will you get to play your favorites on the ukulele, but Chuy's offers terrific Mexican food, and are BEST KNOWN for their Margarita's which are all made with freshly squeezed lime juice. Choose from on the Rocks, Frozen, Strawberry,or the Swirl or Dot. (Pictured below) YUMMY!

Or try the TEXAS MARTINI, made to order, hand shaken and served with their special jalapeno-stuffed olives. If none of that gets your gizzard, they have a FULL BAR with an extension scotch and gin selection and can make anything you desire.

Enjoy hand rolled tortillas, and fresh salsa which is made every hour.

    Tons of fun. I'm so glad to have finally made an event. And next time I'll know that if I'm wading through chairs to race for a CD that I need to start the jumping/falling/lunging sooner! ;)

    Now that we have closed our restaurant we should be attending
    more events. I might even have to break down and get a ukulele Instead of just come and eat.

      Hi Jill. I'll have an extra one or two with me if you want to sit in. The chords are printed out on each page. I just bought the Jumping Jim's Daily Ukulele and I'll be bringing that as well.

    Parking is easy behind the Crate and Barrell, at the corner of
    McKinney and Knox St - caddy-corner from Chuy's!
    (Try not to get destracted while walking by the Apple Store...)

    Leslie the Jumpin Jim's Ukulele is a songbook. It has a yellow cover and contains 365 songs. It can be purchased online or at one of the local music stores. Hope this helps...

    • LESLIE L.

      Thanks so much! I thought it was one of those maddening things where you're looking right at something and don't see it (which is par for the course!)

      December 26, 2013

  • Suzie R.

    What is the parking situation there?? Thanks, sz

    December 26, 2013

  • LESLIE L.

    I can't seem to find Jumpin’ Jim’s Daily Ukulele in the files. I must be overlooking it. Does anyone see what page it's on? Is it under another name? Thanks.
