Listening to music while eating is the best way to keep ears from getting jealous of tongues and making all your dinner partner's words sound like sad trombones. Keep your ears happy with today’s Groupon: for $69, you get an evening of jazz and dinner for two at Birdland Jazz Club (up to a $195 value). The evening includes:
- Two tickets to any performance (up to a $50 value each).
- Two house salads (a $12 value each).
- Two orders of southern fried chicken, blackened Louisiana catfish, Cajun jambalaya, or vegetarian platter (up to a $23 value each).
- One half bottle of wine (up to a $25 value).
A hotbed of jazz since 1949, Birdland Jazz Club burnished its stage with the brass of legendary performers such as John Coltrane and Charlie Parker, a stage that today supports the talents of modern musicians who continue to immerse audiences in the jazz tradition. After stepping through the door and into a venue tinted with smoky voices, smooth saxophones, and four-legged tables, guests settle down for an evening of ear-tickling harmonies and taste bud-tickling flavors. Arrange note-shaped lettuce leaves into an edible symphony before succumbing to the southern rhythms of blackened Louisiana catfish or Cajun jambalaya in a prix fixe meal that pairs beautifully with spicy trumpet solos. Guests can raise a glass to the drum-driven sounds of the Birdland Big Band on Friday nights, or wait for the arrival of mid-September to catch the free-flowing jazz of Lee Konitz & Tomasz Stanko Quintet. On Wednesdays, visitors can tap their toes to the rich notes of the Gully Low Jazz Band as they pay tribute to the aural sculptures of musical pioneers such as Louis Armstrong.
