    I’m not sure who shared the information that Joe’s bar was open for Happy Feet on Xmas but when we stopped by a little before 9p they were about to close and the dance floor was dark.

    • Hi Caroline,

      Ah sorry, they said they would be open for Christmas but didn’t say when they’d close.

      Best,
      Brian

      • Caroline Sam

    There are lots of choices for things to do next Saturday (Dec. 16th) in the L.A. area, but only one of them is a selection of swingin’ works from the Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn treatment of the Nutcracker Suite, something almost no one has actually had the opportunity to see performed live, all at the low low cost of completely free of charge. Come join the L.A. Swing Barons put on this holiday classic, live at Clifton’s Republic.

    https://www.facebook.com/events/1941671126098263/

    • Hi Adam,

      Will this be swing-danceable?

      Thanks,
      Brian

      • Adam

        Of course. I mean…it’s Clifton’s so the floor isn’t the largest/best, but the music will be our usual swingin’ stuff. I selected the movements from the Nutcracker that are the most swinging too, to keep the energy up.
