Old Friends in New Places

What a night I had last night! My former boss (Mr. Grateful Dead) from Houston was in town, and I had the honor of joining him and family and friends to watch his son's cabaret show at The Metropolitan Room. The venue was small and full of character (and characters - the original Gerber baby, now pushing 90, was there), the lighting was dim, the martini's were strong and the company was a delight. I bored them with my stories of moving to the city, and we all took turns being impressed by Mr. Grateful Dead's progeny. The show was a two-person cabaret act, taking the audience back in time to enjoy jazz songs from the Prohibition era. With great music and a little bit of history thrown in, I was in heaven!
