Let's expand our musical horizons with an evening of dining, drinking and listening to Cincinnati institution blues man Ricky Nye with The New Orleans Jazz. I've already reserved a table in the Canal Room where the band is playing.
The Musicians: Ricky Nye and The New Orleans Jazz
Place: Canal Room in the Washington Platform Saloon, just around the corner from the Music Hall.
Cost: $10 food and beverage minimum
Time: The band starts playing around 9 pm to midnight. I'll be there at 8:30 pm and will have dinner there. I hope people will join me.
Parking: Free parking after 5 pm in Court Street Center, directly across Elm Street. Here is what the Washington Park Garage manager told me (The garage is at 1230 Elm St., right across from the entrance to the Music Hall.) "There is a CSO Performance going on at Music Hall that we will be at a $10.00 rate from 5p-8p.It is very hard to say whether or not we will have additional parking after the symphony performance starts as we do normally reach capacity for the majority of Music Hall events. In the event that we are not, we will be going to a $3.00 flat rate after 8 pm. The price for parking from 8:15p to midnight would be a flat rate of $3.00. Unfortunately I cannot guarantee whether or not we will have parking spaces by that time, but those will be the prices we will be at for the day."
Dancing: Not this time. I checked with the staff, and this is a "performance only" event.
Accessibility: The Canal Room is on the first floor and is fully wheelchair-accessible.
