I've just come in from dinner at the Thirsty Monkey and listening to blues singer, Billie Rose here from Vicksburg, Mississippi. Wow, what a night! How great it is when you have NO expectations and get blown away.
The owners of this restaurant have another one in South Texas and one of them is from New Orleans. I grew up in Louisiana. Give me a bowl of GOOD red beans and rice and it is manna from heaven...............this was the BEST I've had in 10 or 15 years.............whenever I was last in New Orleans..........Lord they were good!
Top that off with this off-beat woman who could sing husky jazz and then blues and then some deep south music and I was "swooning" as they say in the south.
If you're reading this in San Miguel - Billie Rose - the singer is only there on Friday and Saturday from 8-10PM (darn) but she's trying to get together another "gig" somewhere else on another night. I can't wait to go back and hear more good music.....and probably eat red beans and rice...........
