I finally broke away from the daily grind of working and enjoyed some New Mexican entertainment of dinner and live music last night. My girlfriend and I started with Del Charro’s Saloon and restaurant. A favorite among locals, this rustic, western-themed watering hole serves Tex Mex grub, margaritas & cocktails and is in the hotel bar for Inn of the Governors.
After our palates were pleasantly satisfied, we walked about a block over to the newly opened “The High Note” on 132 Water Street. The place is small and cozy and we managed to get there a few minutes early to get good seats. They do charge $5.00 cover. We were there to listen to Gwen Spatzier, who recently starting performing again with an amazing band-featuring Soul, R&B, Blues, Rock and Original songs. Her gig started with honoring David Bowie and just got better from there. If you get the chance to listen to her music, I highly recommend taking time to do so.
Furthermore, now I know why this city is called “The City Different” I am used to seeing women get on the dance floor with each other and dance but this was a first for me in seeing men enjoying each others company as well. Go Men!
