Gitcher Ya-Yas Out!

Tomorrow, Sunday 1-10-16, is the second Sunday of the month and therefore, the South Bay New Orleans Jazz Club's monthly meeting from 1 to 5 p.m. at the Knights of Columbus hall, 214 Avenue I, Riviera Village.  Free parking in the Wells Fargo bank parking lot.

This is nothing new - the jazz club began in 1962!  That's 54 years ago for those, like myself, that like someone else (in my case ANYONE else) to do the math. 

Good, lively music, dancing and a no-host bar with reasonable prices.  Non-members pay $9 admission and go try to see a movie for $9.  I think they're more expensive and what goes on at the jazz club is often as interesting (or more so) than a movie. 

I think of our resident Dancing Fools who take to the floor like professionals...I remember how Lou used to drag Bernie out on the floor and twirl and show off while he basically shifted his weight from foot to foot ... I remember the pair of visitors who put a great deal of pep into their appearance; she would slink up to him, their belt buckles would click together (magnets?) and off they'd go, pelvises locked together,  fox trotting away. 

As if all of that is not enough, the club also sells hot dogs, chips, homemade baked goods and coffee at reasonable prices. 

And to think all of this excitement only happens once a month - the second Sunday which is tomorrow.  Be there or be square!

(We generally get there at 2 p.m. and would welcome you.)
