This Friday night (May 25, 2012)
Dinner begins at 5pm and the concert starts at 8!
I previously reported that it started at 8:30 but I was wrong! It starts at 8!
Samirah Evans is a jazz singer from New Orleans who I used to go see in the clubs there. I was first introduced to her because I had a short-time boyfriend who was a professional jazz guitarist and she was his favorite singer. He was also his own favorite person in the whole world, so my relationship with Samirah lasted a lot longer than the relationship with him did. He was a really great guitarist though!
So I remained a fan of Samirah’s and here she is now! Coming to play at Elmer’s! She understands my need for New Orleans music and is helping me out. Here’s a recent clip of her: http://youtu.be/RbVUY-8jfyc
That is this Friday. I know we don’t usually do shows on Friday nights, but it was the only night she had open, and so we’re doing it on Friday night. It is by reservation, as we do, so call us up for your reservation. (413) 628-4003.
We’ll be serving dinner that night as we do anyway, and our dinner will be
Crab Cakes (Very New Orleans!)
with red onion and caper tartar sauce
With Sweet Potato Hash
With local asparagus
Asparagus and Potato Crepes in a béarnaise sauce.
And Black bean burgers
But, you say, “Wait! On Friday night I’m going to the play at Town Hall, but I wanted to come for dinner at Elmer’s beforehand!”
No problem at all. We figured this out yesterday. You call us up for reservations too and we will feed everyone!
