Chris, Kellie, and I had a meeting with the coordinator of Fresno’s JazzHop, to-day. It looks like Fresno Swing Dance will be dancing the night away at future JazzHops! Ideally, we would like to dance outside of the Tower Theatre or at Revue Cafe.
We’re hoping this will boost the atmosphere of JazzHop and attract potential members of Fresno’s Lindy Hop community. The community, here, is still in its infancy stage and there are a dozen regular dancers.

This is like no other event in Fresno. Jefferson Beavers, board member, introduced me to the organization. Thanks to him, my friend and I attended the viewing of Oscar-nominated shorts, back in March. It was an amazing event! And it was my first time at the Tower Theatre. It was an amazing opportunity!
Fresno Filmworks does a great introducing independent films to Fresno. This is something organizers felt was lacking in our culture.
Nowhere else would a giant teddy bear eating a hot dog tacked to a wall make sense.
But it does at the newly opened Brown Bear’s Hotdogs, a little stand at Herndon Avenue and #Fresno Street, just north of Chili’s restaurant.

There were college students at Silver Dollar Hofbrau, again. They came at the end of the live swing music and dancing and hung out at the bar.
Almost here! Three more weeks till they’re mature enough to harvest! /squeal

If you take a Music Appreciation class, at Fresno State, you are required to attend a live jazz event. This is from my understanding. /shrug
Well! There’s only one weekly jazz event, in Fresno, and that is Tuesday Night Swing at Silver Dollar Hofbrau. This was one of those weeks when the bar was crowded with Fresno State students fulfilling their obligations. Most of these students weren’t thrilled to be there. It was obvious.
