Do you enjoy jazz music? You’re officially a grown up.
There’s something about a seductive saxophone and thumping bass line that screams “adult.” I’m not fighting this label — I’ll embrace it with open arms and a Ron Burgundy-style jazz flute solo (for real, my husband and I both play the flute).
Fellow grown ups can celebrate the genre at an intimate jazz show at the Varanese restaurant in Clifton next week. Musician Jeff Sherman and his students will perform at the restaurant on Thursday, Nov. 27. The concert is free, but reservations are recommended and can be made by calling (502) 899-9904.
I put this event under the Treat Yo’ Self category because Varanese is fancy, y’all. The entrees will set you back between $17 and $28. But if you’re on a budget and love some jazz, I suggest you eat dinner at home and order a dessert like the chocolate lava cake or mocha creme brulee, which are all $7 or less. Add a $3.50 cup of espresso, and you have yourself a nice evening.
