Chilly fall evenings have driven us indoors, where coziness and hospitality welcome us into The Drunk Brush Wine Bar on Grover Alley in beautiful greater metropolitan downtown Quincy, California. The libations are superb, the laughter infectious, the conversations rich. Word on the street is that the music is also not shabby. Shaggy, sometimes, but not shabby.
I’ll play two sets, (unless I play three sets or one long set), for this October edition of my Ongoing Solos 2018. Folks seriously into listening to songs have been taking over the far/star end of the room, while those who seek easy conversation hang at the bar end of the room. There’s room between for people who like to have one ear on each of both ends of the room. This is defined as “win, win, win”, AKA “a real good deal”.
On Thursdays fine sandwich and other fare is available until 6 p.m. from The Knook, which adjoins the scene.
If you find yourself wanting to stay over in Quincy, a contender as one of the coolest small towns in the USA, consider the Quincy Courtyard Suites, which offer efficient walking distance access to many of the town’s delights.
