Jazz On the Eastern Front

We’ve lived in Carlsbad for a while now. More than many, less than some. And it’s rare that we venture in past El Camino Real, let alone all the way out to Rancho Santa Fe.

Img 0181-2Tonight we ventured to Stagecoach Park for TGIF Jazz in the Park and what we found was a warm lawn-covered bowl filled with more Carlsbadistanians than we’ve ever seen congregated. Couples sharing a picnic basket, kids going crazy on the jungle gym, teens making out behind the old Stagecoach Stop, and boys charging through the underbrush on the wilder edges of the park.

Meanwhile, on stage Sue Palmer “San Diego’s Queen of Boogie Woogie” had a quarter of the crowd up and on their feet. After the initial shock of seeing so many attractive Southern California’s in a place that wasn’t sand, surf, or a stadium wore off we realized that these TGIF events are pretty cool even if they have outgrown all our little Village parks and now occur way out on the Eastern Front.
