After Work Pick of the Week

This week's pick for an after work jazz treat is Katerina's on West Irving Park Road.  Nicole Kestler and pianist Brian Ohern are scheduled for Friday evening from 6:30 to 9:00 pm.  No cover.

I plan to make the After Work Pick of the Week a regular feature.  Let me know if you have any suggestions!
