Sweet Basil & The Big Easy BenefitSweet Basil
is my favorite $$$$ restaurant in Vail.
Summer mountain operations for Vail is shut down. Gondola access to the mountain is no longer operating for the Summer Season. It's typical this time of year since it's the start of the shoulder season. Snowmaking crews will be hauling hoses and mountain winter ops is starting to gear up.
But your timing might turn out to be really good if you're going to Vail this weekend. There is an impromptu benefit this weekend at Vail's Ford Amphitheatre. It's being called BIG EASY BENEFIT
It was orginally a Voices Of The Wetlands CD Release Party
that was scheduled in Louisiana. Since Katrina, there are no more "wetlands" no pun intended
. So, the show has been moved from Louisiana to Vail
This is going to be a pretty good show:
Big Chief Monk Boudreaux
Tony G and Friends
Jumpin' Johnny Sansone
This isn't on the Vail website since it's a last minute switcharoo. $30 bones for General Admission ...$45 for covered/reserved seating ...$250 for a private evening show with Dr John on Sunday evening with food, wine and beer incl.
I'll be there.
