Back Patio Open! / Live Music Mon & Tue! / New State Limitations
WHAT DOES SPRING BRING?
More room for walk-in guests, live music, and new state-imposed restrictions.
THE BACK PATIO IS NOW OPEN ON SUNNY AND WARM DAYS
These (currently) non-reservable tables allow us to triple the number of outdoor tables “reserved” for walk-in guests on predictably sunny and warm days.
Jazz with a Bluesy, Funky Backbone…
Internationally acclaimed guitarist Chance Hayden returns to Tavern On Kruse Monday with keyboardist Michael Elson and drummer Tyrone Hendrix who are featured on Hayden’s latest album “Grab & Go” released this past November on Atlanta Records. Hayden’s guitar delves into the jazz lexicon while equally steeped with blues, funk and soul.
Masterful, Original Jazz…
Dingus is Machado Mijiga’s Portland-based jazz trio with a strong sense of groove. Dingus describes themselves as “a lil’ bit o’ this, and a lit’ bit ‘o that; a hodgepodge of different genres rocking a jazzy pair of shades.” Helmed by drummer Machado Mijiga, Dingus features original music from Mijiga, Stefan Jarocki on bass, and keyboardist Dario LaPoma.”
Because we have covered and heated tables outdoors this time around, we will not be limiting table reservation times or changing happy hour and brunch times like we did to survive the first “25%” reopening. What you’ve seen over the last few weeks is what you can depend upon.
Happy Hour remains 3pm – 5:45pm, available in the bar or on the patios for walk-ins only (no reservations).
Weekend Brunch runs 11am-3pm (rather than 11-2 during our initial reopening).
The Back Patio (we call it “The “Lounge”) will be open on warmer days only. The tables and chairs might look available, but staffing it on cold days won’t be a reality.
Live music will start at 6pm from now on, wrapping up around 8pm through the spring and 8:45pm as we get closer to summer (fingers tighten and strings go out of tune if it they get below 60°)!
Please consider making reservations at ALL your favorite restaurants through the next couple weeks. Tavern is blessed with a 70-seat patio; not all restaurants are so lucky. Here are some other “mom-and-pop” L.O. restaurants to put on your list if you are unfamiliar: Aji Tram, Five Spice, Nicoletta’s, Chuckie Pies, Riccardo’s, Jefe… they all are doing good work and are run by really good people.
