This weekend has plenty going for it: Halloween parties, spooky theater productions, a hallow's eve burlesque fest. But before we know it Monday will be upon us. Here's something to keep in mind for when the weekend is just a distant memory.
This week: Jazz night at Brooks and Browns
Atmosphere: On a recent Tuesday night, Brooks and Browns exudes the sedate, undiscovered milieu of your average hotel bar. The lighting isn’t quite what you’d call dim, but the air is thick with the tonal swagger of blues guitar and the juniper scent of Tanqueray. The place is more getaway than downtown destination. A seat at the bar prompts a little light chatter with the bartender, Arlin. He says the jazz night—now about two months old—is usually pretty busy here, 30 to 35 people. Summer was hopping, with music on the patio and listeners on blankets in the grass. Tonight it feels more like something from the pages of a noir novel.
