After Preview Night: Dinner and Dancing at Croce's Restaurant and Jazz Bar in the San Diego Gaslamp District

After Preview Night closed at 9 p.m., the Big Wow Art group was ready for dinner and entertainment.

Doug and I (far left) enjoyed both at Croce's Restaurant and Jazz Bar, located a few blocks from the Westin Gaslamp Hotel at 802 5th Avenue in the Gaslamp District.

Croce's, a popular landmark featuring live jazz nightly, is a tribute to singer-songwriter Jim Croce, who died at age 30 in a small commercial plane crash on September 20, 1973.

The food was delicious - in fact, it was so good that Doug and I had dinner a second time at Croce's; the music was awesome! Sue Palmer - the queen of Boogie Woogie in San Diego - was a fantastic entertainer whose 2009 album "On Air" was nominated for Best Blues Album by the San Diego Music Awards.
