We're returning as special guests to Cara Lippman's Tuesday Blues Jam, for a set at about 8:45 or so. It's free, they make great cocktails there, it's a nice joint, and Cara and her outfit are aces. This scene's as social as it is musical, so stop by and catch up with old friends and make new ones.  And come early to hear Cara's own set at 8 p.m. You'll be glad you did. And if you want to jam, ask her for the sign-up sheet. It's at 110 28th Avenue North, just a block from the West End Ave main entrance to Centennial Park.
