HAPPY BIRTHDAY - PETER MORGAN & KATE O'NEILL

Newcastle on Sunday - who needs New York? (Bobby Darin reference)*

How's this for a super Sunday? Lunch at the Cherry Tree Restaurant in Jesmond where a pianist - probably Jack Cowan - provides a jazzy background to the superb cuisine. Take a leisurely stroll - or a bus or a Metro into 'The Toon' for the Jam Session at the Jazz Café. It kicks off mid-afternoon with Pete Gilligan on piano and a whole host of players queing up to jam. Around 7-7:30pm, take a leisurely stagger across to the Bridge Hotel where the Sunday evening Splinter @ the Bridge series commences its winter season of concerts. The Mark Williams Trio are this week's band. Indeed it is within the realms of possibilty that Mark could show at all three venues!
