Priscilla loves, loves, loves all that Jazz! Jazz clubs are great, but festivals are even better getting to explore different styles of Jazz. This was a weekend event and one of the largest and best Jazz festivals on the West Coast. Blocks and blocks of food, music, promotional events, shopping, wine tasting, and dancing. Lots of red, white, and blue for the fourth of July holiday, but no visible fireworks with the fog in San Francisco.
The best part of all of this besides the food-the Calimari, the garlic fries, the smothered clams, and "Sky falling down" while eating a chocolate ganache cupcake-as usual
The PEOPLE made it all worthwhile>>>>>
A local SF girl of Vietnamese descent who owns her own jewelry business and just recently came back from a convention in Chicago. This girl comes to the Jazz festival every year.. for one reason... to see if this 75 year old man is alive...He is a living and breathing example of enjoying life to the fullest. His face lit up and with every dance and every woman:). She never asks for his contact info. rather she just makes sure he is still shining .......
-A lovely young couple from Oakland with a strong, intelligent beautiful woman and a man appreciate for it all. She drops marriage hints and I hope he is smart enough to put a ring on it. I was distracted by hearing about her baking of Peach cobbler and Banana cream pudding. I asked, "Can that be shipped via Fed Ex?"
And then there was Leroy-living his purpose and living for Jazz. After thirty years, he still gets stage fright. Since I'm now a Speaking professional(not), I gave him some tips for that stage fright. Who knows if they worked?
