Anonymity and Intimacy
Finding a needle in a haystack might be easier than finding these two things in D.C. It is a small city where you know the "who's who" and everyone has an agenda to accomplish. The combination makes our nation's capital ambitious and passionate. Yet, sometimes, it is dysfunctional and impersonal.
So, the fact that this secret location has not one, but both of these traits...is a big deal.
Here, the love may not spread far but it spreads thick - like the hot air and the glow of an orange fire in a wood paneled room or the sweet melody of gypsy guitar wafting alongside a heavy dinner and stiff drink.
That was our experience in this place and we want to share a piece of it.
Michael Joseph Harris and Donato Soviero play the best gypsy jazz in town. Seriously. Take a listen to these two fellas and you might fall in love with their music like we did. Here's hoping we see more of them and their friends (who also play) at our spot, The Tabard Inn, on Sundays (7:30-10:30 PM), Mondays and Tuesdays (6:45-9:45 PM).
