Come join us for the inaugural Jazz & Wine Club Party celebrating our first Club Sampler release. Our partner, Stark Wine Company, will host the festivities at their 439 Healdsburg Ave. tasting room. They’ll serve their wines to accompany food from Bravas Bar de Tapas, as lively jazz from the Mark Levine Quartet plays. For all that it’s only $25 – free if you’re a Wine Club member. More information here or to purchase tickets, go right here.
Invite your Friends to Join: We want everyone to know what a good deal the new Healdsburg Jazz & Wine Club is, so we’ve put together this PDF. We urge you to download it and send it to your friends, or just tell them to visit their site to learn more!
Sinatra Sings to Packed House at Manor
It was a terrific Tribute to Frank Sinatra on Nov. 20 with Bay Area entertainer John DeMers at the Madrona Manor. He sang all the hits and then some, following a memorable dinner from Chef Jesse Mallgren at the celebrated Michelin-starred restaurant. Our newest fund-raising opportunity proved as popular as we hoped it would be – and everyone seemed to have a smashing time!
Jazz Dinners Return to Dry Creek Kitchen
The popular twice-weekly Jazz Dinners return to Dry Creek Kitchen the first week of December, to continue every Monday and Tuesday (except holiday eves) through March. Duos featuring Brazilian and other jazz music, from 7 to 10 pm nightly, make a perfect accompaniment to your Charlie Palmer dining experience. A special three-course Jazz Dinner is available for just $36, or $51 with paired wines. Two dollars from each meal will be donated to the Healdsburg Education Foundation. It’s great food and good music served up as only Healdsburg can! Musicians list found here.
Jazz on the Menu 2014 Date Announced

Plus the annual Celebration Concert at Costeaux will return as well – all on Wednesday, February 26, 2014. Participating restaurants will be announced soon, and you can find more information on this page.
