Jazz weekend

Saturday, as part of my weekend birthweek debauch, snuck into the Underground Wonderbar just before 8 to avoid paying cover charge. I was pleasantly surprised at how good the band was - played 2 hours of classic jazz standards. Recognized Thelonious Monk, Charles Mingus, Charlie Parker, and at least one tune from John Coltrane.

Jazz club
your humble narrator having a celebratory birthday smoke (bummed some Drum tobacco from the bass player). Yeah, yeah, so chastise me. I enjoyed smoking it nonetheless. I've always been a sucker for hand-crafted objects, whether furniture or cigarettes.

Afterwards, stumbled over to Le Colonial for some French-Vietnamese appetizers.
