In honor of our having met the 6 year mark in terms of dating, Joel and I enjoyed a night on the town last weekend. We dined at one of the few Italian restaurants in town called Cin Cin (pronounced “chin chin”) where I had the best tender, succulent lamb EVER–braised in a red wine reduction sauce with roasted vegetables and couscous. Joel had spinach ravioli filled with gorgonzola. That was pretty tasty too.
We then proceeded to a jazz concert (which, thanks to Joel’s schmoozing powers at the Times-Standard, was free) featuring legendary pianist most famous for being John Coltrane’s keyboard man, McCoy Tyner. He played with a drummer and a stand up bassist, who definitely stole the show. This guy had a bow, the back of which he used to tap the strings for a dramatic, percussive effect. It was rad.
