Sun Spots: Chillin' at Summer Breeze (2010)

Summer Breezin'

Wednesday night was another perfect night to enjoy the summer breeze at the 5th Annual Summer Breeze Jazz Concert Series!  If you come to Summer Breeze, here's what you'll find:  a mature crowd.  Truly.  Ages range from the 30s probably into the mid-50s.  Seating is pretty reasonably available, although, with some acts, if you get there late, you'll definitely be on your feet.  Aside from "The Pit" in front of the stage, seating is open.  That means, no reserved seats, no bottle service requirements, no bar completely devoid of bar stools.  As I said, this is a mature set!

Folks stone-cold chill at Summer Breeze, taking full advantage of the outdoor seating area.   In fact, well after the music has ended, you're likely to still find people lounging outdoors, enjoying conversation and cocktails.  Situated in the West Loop, parking is relatively easy to find and there are plenty of restaurants in walking distance from the venue.  This means that, while pizzas are available at the venue, you can leave your car in place and enjoy some al fresco dining between sets or after the performance!

The Details:  Summer Breeze takes place at Red Kiva, 1108 West Randolph, on Wednesdays through July 28th (with a break on 6/30) from 6-9pm.  The first set is at 6:30pm.  Admission is free!  View the upcoming lineup!
