The Twelfth Jazz Festival of 2010 is nearly here!
We're talking Sunday, December 5th, 2010!




For those of you who don't know... There is a FREE Jazz Festival held on the FIRST Sunday of EVERY month on the Riverwalk in Fort Lauderdale. Depending on the weather there can be between a few hundred and a few thousand people in attendance.

We set aside a special meeting place where fellow POFers can meet, spend some casual, low pressure time getting to know one another. This is a GREAT way to spend a Sunday brunch relaxing and meeting other singles in an intimate, calm and friendly environment!

This event is a pot-luck so PLEASE bring something to share.

For ideas read users comments starting in Msg 2!


Check out this lineup!!
December 5
EP - Valerie Tyson
CH - East-West Fusion
PC - Peter Betan & Marc Berner
LO - WT Heck


Here are the directions and details:
Address for mapquest:
Broward Center for the Performing Arts
201 SW 5th Avenue
Ft Lauderdale, FL 33312
Directions from I-95:

  1. I-95 to Broward Blvd., Go East.
  2. Turn Right (south) on to SW 5th Ave.
  3. Go to the first and only stoplight at the intersection of SW 5th and Himmarshee St.
  4. At the stoplight where SW 5th Ave intersects Himmarshee St.. (Himmarshee St. is also called 2nd St.) you should see the IMAX (Museum of Science and Discovery) on your left and the parking garage on your right. The drive up to the Performing Arts Center is straight ahead. Note: While stopped, look out your window at about the 10:00 position you will see an open grassy area, a sidewalk just to the left of the drive for the Performing Arts Center and to the left of that sidewalk a HUGE tree. We are under that tree. Look for a red balloon.
  5. Take a left on Himmarshee St. and start looking for parking.

Parking in the garage is $12 while prices vary among the lots along 2nd street - expect ranges between $5 and $10. There are meters along 2nd street but you'll need to get there around 9:30a to get one. The later you arrive, the further away you have to park or the more expensive parking will be.

NOTE: Some people have had trouble finding our ONE red balloon so I will attempt to give clearer directions so that all may find "the tree".
Marker: If you were standing in front of the main stage looking towards the street you'll see two things that look like BIG satelite TV dishes pointed at each other, we are under the tree behind the dish on your left. WE ARE DIRECTLY ACROSS THE STREET FROM THE MUSEUM OF SCIENCE AND DISCOVERY.
Video reference: If you need a visual marker (or proof that we actually do this) you can click here!

If you plan on attending, bring something to sit on (chair or blanket). You will also want to bring some bottled water and if you want, some mimosa material, bloody marys, wine or what ever else you enjoy. Some people turn this into an event while others bring nothing. If you want to pack a picnic basket, feel free to do so or stroll around with other POFs and grab a bite from one of the street vendors or eat in one of the numerous restaurants. Your choice!
I will be there from 9:30 until at least 2:00p (unless it rains). The band plays from 11:00a until 2:00p and most POFers start arriving around 10:15 with stragglers showing up as late as noon. Dress is VERY casual.

RAIN CHECK: If the weather looks iffy you may call the Broward County Parks and Recreation Department at (954) 828-5363 to obtain information about the event including cancellations. Press options 3 for info on the Jazz Brunch and then option 4 for status re: weather. I will post a weather notice around 7:30a but in April the waited until 8:30a to cancel the event and I am already enroute by then.
In case of rain we will meet for Bloody Mary's at the outdoor resturant at the Riverside Hotel on Las Olas (just a few blocks from where we would meet at the jazz festival). The Riverside is located at 620 East Las Olas Blvd., Ft. Lauderdale, FL 33301 and their phone is: (954) 467-0671 For directions click HERE


DON’T FORGET SUNBLOCK!!!
If you need more info, either send me an email or drop me a note here!

You might want to bring your out of town family to the Jazz Fest. They may enjoy taking a stroll along the New River.

The POF portion of the event is a potluck for singles of all ages.
The Jazz Fest draws a large variety of people, their families, and their leashed puppy dogs.
