Monday, 21 October 2013: Bebop over to Down House

Posted by john | Meetings | Posted on October 21st, 2013

Down House SignOn this day in 1917, John Birks “Dizzy” Gillespie was born in Cheraw, South Carolina.  Gillespie would go on to help create the jazz form bebop and make some waves in the Bayou City along the way.  There’s no record of where (besides the Music Hall and the police station) Dizz visited while he was here, but we bet if it were there at the time, he’d have enjoyed a visit to Down House1801 Yale St. Join us there at 8:00 PM for a cocktail or beer, and grab some good grub if you’re peckish.  DH is in the dry part of the Heights, so make sure you bring your I.D. so you can join their club for the night (or your existing club membership card if you’ve been there recently).  Also, they have more parking on 18th half a block west of Yale, if the main parking lot is full.

This list may or may not reflect the actual list of beers you could select from.
