On her one night off from the current run of The Trial of Ken Gass, multi-talented performer Jessica Salgueiro will spend her evening singing (and cooking) for 20 patrons for Saudade, a music and culinary experience. Salgueiro will be singing songs in the Fado tradition, telling stories, and helping the folks at Knaves Kitchen serve food over several courses, in a back room at Lula Lounge. Seating for the evening is capped at 20 people, and reservations are required.
This listing originally gave the event’s location as Lula Lounge; in fact, the event will be taking place at N/A collective, which is located behind Lula Lounge.
