Deco Features: Jazz and Lunch at Coral Gables
Soflo has some amazing places where you can grab a bite to eat, and we've got some amazing places to see a concert Deco found a place that combines them both.
Forget dinner and show now you can serenaded during your lunch break The City of Coral Gables and the Miami Jazz Co-Op are jazzing up your hump day.
MARI GALLET: "We're promoting jazz in the Gables to get folks out of these beautiful buildings at lunch time and enjoy this beautiful weather, and we are also inviting visitors to come to Coral Gables and enjoy everything we have to offer."
Jazz in the Gables is a mid day lunch break happening once a week from 12:15 p.m. to 2 p.m.
MARI GALLET: "Very wends from now till March. We are going to have a different act. Today we have Nicole Henry, but we are going to have different acts come up.
NICOLE HENRY: "I think its all about being introduced to new music and new artists. I don't think you have to be a jazz aficionado to enjoy a lot of the music."
Who says the best things in life aren't free? Jazz in the Gables won't cost you a dime.
MARI GALLET: "One of the great reasons we can do this for free is that we are involved with Miami Jazz coop a non profit organization a lot of these artists don't have any gigs at lunch time-so they come out and we can offer this for free."
We know it's lunch time so you can buy food there or brown bag it, as long as you enjoy the show.
NICOLE HENRY: "I think its a great way to community together and infuse some jazz and some musIc into your world."
If the only thing you know about jazz is, jazz hands don't worry you're still gonna have fun.
NICOLE HENRY: "Get an opp. to do something different with your lunch break. Mix things up it brings art into peoples lives where sometimes they don't make the time for it."
Who knew a nooner could be so cultural?
