non sequitur Friday

Here are two by a promising young local singer who I saw at last weekend's Hyde Park Jazz Festival.

If you want to learn a little more about her, check this one out. Her appearance starts about 2:00 into the video. Next year she'll be performing at the Montreux Jazz Festival.

a new place in the neighborhood

There's a new place on Howard St.: Jenny's Gourmet Restaurant, 1642 W. Howard (just east of the Howard "L", across the street from Jamaica Jerk), featuring Thai, Vietnamese and Chinese specialties.

I hear that she prepares her meals fresh, on site, with no oil. There are options for both meat eaters and vegetarians. I'm looking forward to trying it soon. It sounds like a great addition to the neighborhood. Already been there? Please post comments to share with others.
