A little less ... Live jazz in ROC, November 8-14

The jazz jam series at the downtown Hyatt, announced on this blog here, is either on hiatus or has been cancelled. While I hope it returns, it may be just another in a long line of attempts to bring people downtown for jazz that just couldn't overcome the perceptions that prevent it.  I wish it had more of a chance to get established before the rug was inevitably pulled.  If you have thoughts on what needs to happen, please hit the Comment link at the bottom of the post and share them.

Unexpected Denim Pieces You'll Want To Add To Your Fall Wardrobe

It happened with mom jeans, cropped denim jackets, high-rise midi skirts, mini skirts, flares, skinny jeans and more. But for the first time in what feels like forever, we're getting a glimpse of some mint condition trends in the denim department.Brands are, at last, m...
