Music: Live Jazz on Monday nights (no cover)

This is a nearby joint and I'm really not sure why I don't come here more often. It's always a relaxed atmosphere inside and there's nothing in the neighborhood that even comes close to competing with the free jazz offered on Monday evenings.

Last Monday I stopped by for a Maker's on the rocks and listened for a short time. Good tunes. Didn't catch the name of the quartet (else I would mention them specifically,) but they were good and the it was a nice place to be.

I didn't eat then, but I've been here before for grub. Always tasty. I typically just come here for a drink or two — it's a great place to bring a date, or a single friend or two for conversation. Once I met Mr. Wikipedia and his wife here. He had dragged her along convincing her it doubled as a juice bar. Unfortunately is was not. But it is both a great bar bar, as well as coffee bar — and restaurant.

Lucky to have it up here. Lucky to have it. Now if only the could make outdoor seating in the summertime happen, the place just might be perfect.
