We’re celebrating Mardi Gras this month!  Plan on some gumbo, Etouffee, dirty rice, po boys, and other tasty treats.

Also look for fresh shucked fried Gloucester Massachusetts Belly clams on the specials menu.  Very rare to get here on the far left coast but we’ve got seafood people in special places.

Keep your eyes peeled for home made Bresola. Cured & air dried beef like cappacola! Our version was soaked in Belgian quad after the cure, then dried again  It’s a 6 month process but well worth the wait.  You’ll find it this month with some rustic toast and beer honey.

Myrtle Lane

A group made up of four moms and two dads, who juggle their parenting responsibilities with the time it takes to create music together. They enjoy playing at events around the San Francisco Bay Area. Expect a fun mix of folk and Americana music, with the occasional original tune, and special emphasis on vocal harmonies.

Wednesday March 15th


B3B4 is a long-awaited musical conversation between four Bay Area jazz veterans, combining the soulful growl of the Hammond B3 organ, the resonant bite of the tenor saxophone, the bluesy fluidity of the electric guitar and the propulsive groove of the drums. The quartet is heavily steeped in blues and bop, featuring a repertoire including works by Jimmy Smith, Billy Strayhorn, Neal Hefti and Miles Davis, in addition to their own compositions. Their performances range from mid-tempo blues to warm, intricate ballads to driving up-tempo barnburners, and they reveal the fluency and experience of the group’s members in a wide range of genres.

Wednesday March 22nd

With the Whiskey Family Band, Jason teams up with singing sensation Samantha Vigil and longtime friend and musical collaborator/poet Ed Flores (as well as PMW members past and present) for an exploration of musical styles ranging from Country/Americana to Psychedelic Blues and Jam. At the core of the Whiskey Family Band is a commitment to original songwriting first and foremost..although the project is also a vehicle to have some fun and pay homage to the influences that have inspired the band.

Wednesday March 29th

Kate Gaffney Band
The Kate Gaffney Band consists of singer-songwriter Kate Gaffney, guitarist Jeff Miller, keyboardist Phil Ferlino, drummer Marty Ylitalo & bassist David Russ. Kate honed her skills in her native Philadelphia, jumped from coast to coast and toured everywhere in between. She laid musical roots in Northern California, building a strong base in Sacramento and then found her niche within the fertile Bay Area music community. With High Sierra Music Festival & Hardly Strictly Bluegrass performances under her belt, she is thrilled to bring together a new band consisting of some of the bay area’s best local, touring musicians. Guitarist Jeff Miller and keyboardist Phil Ferlino are members of local and nationally touring band, New Monsoon. Both musicians also perform with The Contribution, Knights of Saturn, and Sunshine Garcia Band, in addition to their duo project PA Furnace. They are longtime Marin locals, also with roots in Pennsylvania. Drummer Marty Ylitalo is a former member of New Monsoon with a performance resume of great variety. He currently plays drums with Sean Lehe’s Family Practice Band and recently performed as part of the Blue Man Group at the Venetian in Las Vegas. Bass player David Russ, also a Marin local, plays with Phil and Jeff in the Knights of Saturn. David has toured nationally with Reggae band, The Shakers, and plays locally with blues bands, The Blue Devils and Deluxe. With each musician adding a unique sound and soul to the songs, the Kate Gaffney Band is excited to bring their refreshing style of folk/groove/roots/rock to the stage.
