Gypsy jazz in a basement lounge on a fine spring evening, you ask?
We're happy to report the sound carries nicely through the double
doors onto Bar Reis's lovely back patio. Please join Franglais for our
weekly set and hot club jam session this Wednesday,
May 7th. The schedule is as follows:
8 pm-ish: one set by Franglais (Ben Wood and Bobby Sexton on guitars,
Piruz Partow on bass,
Eve Seltzer on vocals and Monica Smith on violin)
9:30 pm-ish: jam session for whomever cares to join us
11:30 pm: push-up contest (contingent on participation)
Park Slope's Bar Reis, located at 375 Fifth Avenue--between 5th and
6th streets--is accessible by the F, M, and R trains at 9th Street and
4th Avenue. The bar has a nice selection of draft and bottled beer,
some good wine, and talented mixologists (Wednesday nights we have Mo,
who in keeping with the spirit of Franglais, has changed her name to
Meaux--at least on Wednesdays). No kitchen, but they do have an
impressive collection of take-out menus.
Hope to see you there!
