I will be in Washington DC on September 8th with a free evening on my hands. I haven't decided to hit the jazz clubs yet so in case any of my readers in DC or thereabouts are interested in meeting up for a beer and/or dinner I would be more than happy to organise that!
Let me know if you're up for it, preferably by email. I have no ideas about venues, but these things tend to sort themselves out. I'll post closer to the date if it happens with details!
