MICHIGAN WINTER BREAK
It is February and spring is just around the corner. However, nobody has told the weatherman
It looks like Detroit will have high temperatures in the twenties this coming week, Your car and house windows will have an icy glaze that would scatter the suns rays if only we had sunlight in February. This can be depressing.
Bears gather up some stuff and climb into holes for the winter.
Bears also tend to be grumpy.
We do have some better choices. We are an active people and being holed up usually doesn’t fit our nature.
DON’T BE A BEAR, GET OUT.
We need to get out. We don’t want to become grumpy and feel hemmed in, but we need a pretty good reason to leave our warm home and navigate the icy roads. We need to find a place that will get our juices flowing again. We need to get warm to our bones.
Just yards from where your car is left for the Dirty Dog Jazz Café’s complimentary valet parking is one of the warmest places in town. The warmth comes from the heating system, the music, the food, the pub like atmosphere and most of all a genuinely pleasant staff.
On these cold winter evenings the Dirty Dog assembles a staff that has rid themselves of any winter blahs. These are the folks who will welcome their guests into a serene and uplifting experience. This process begins long before any patrons shows up. The management sets the tone and their respect and good-natured work ethic is contagious.
I have had a chance to watch the staff prepare for an evening’s upbeat event. They go about their tasks with a great deal of independence and purpose. Tables were prepared while the kitchen started to hum. The service at the Dirty Dog is a team effort and so is the preparation. This kind of service is not an easy task, and success is not an accident. Gretchen, Tom, André, Willie and all the staff seem to like being around each other. The Dirty Dog is a warm place even before the guests arrive.
Once they get settled visitors to the Dirty Dog Jazz Café often find a smile sneaking across their faces, especially this week when Vincent Chandler’s music and good nature can be counted on to pick up their spirits.
Detroit gives talent a chance to shine. Come on in out of the cold.
THIS WEEK AT THE DIRTY DOG JAZZ CAFÉ
February 7 – 10
Vincent will probably arrive early to the Dirty Dog just to warm up a little. After that the only worry we will have is if he overheats the place. With his reputation he tends to attract some hot cats to play with him. There might be some customers shifting to cool drinks.
