THE THIRD WEEK of a packed house at Blue Fire Supper Club made for a more relaxing evening. You see, I feel responsible for everyone having a good time. There is one thing I found out, and that is, if you don’t mention something that you may not be happy with, then it can’t be corrected and you may end up with a negative opinion.
Marshall, the owner, has made everyone happy if told of any displeasure. They will bend over backwards to please their patrons. That’s one of the reasons I enjoy the place. The other reason is really good food. Really good food, did I say that already. Well it deserves a second mention. Now I’m not just saying that because I’m booking 2, maybe soon-to-be 3 groups there, but everyone feels the same way. They have been open for about 4 months as Blue Fire Supper Club, and are really trying to make the place an upscale supper club with reasonable prices and great entertainment.
I want to thank everyone who came out to support Live Jazz in Summerlin last night. Thanks Jerry Jones, Bill Fayne, Tommy Deering, Grant Griffin, Nik Mastrangelo, Allan, Cynthia, Rose, Ginny, Judy and Bob, Gail and Mort, Rose, Pasquale, Vic, Ruthie, Dan and Pearl, Joann, Patty and all the others that packed the house. Thank you Great Bar crowd. Can’t wait for next Thursday night. And starting Tuesday August 7th Evan Davis Jazz will be presenting Skip Martin and Friends at the Blue Fire.
