    There will also be live jazz at Salty’s tonight in the Cafe Bar from 7 to 10pm, featuring me singing and Edward Weber on the piano. No cover! Great music!

    the pancakes were yummy and the residents were awesome to talk to – and having my 8 year old donate his change was unexpected.

    Thanks for a great morning.

    Error? Byrd Ensemble website schedule, and the Youngstown website schedule, do not have the Afterlife performance on again for this Sat, Feb 25. It was only on the 18th.

    Is it really offered again? Looks interesting.

      Yes, it looks like an accidental copyover from last Saturday. Thanks for pointing it out, and my apologies. Happens once in the proverbial blue moon. – TR
