Thursdays Doings: Jen's Open Mic at Riley's Irish Tavern

Posted By on Thu, Jun 13, 2013 at 4:29 PM

There are some great things happening in the Moldy Pueblo tonight, but one highlight is sure to be Jen McDonald's open mic from 6:30 to 10:30 p.m. at Riley's Irish Tavern, 5140 N. La Cholla Blvd.

Remember Jen? She was the owner of the late Glass Onion Café, a Beatles-themed sandwich shop that cultivated a following for its open-mic nites and eclectic music offerings. Jen is now doing her thing at Riley's: open mic, terrific musicians and some of her fine food, too.

Tonight's special guest is Darren Gallagher, but we have it on good word that the special friends involved include some great local blues and Jazz folks Malik Alkabar, Glendon Gross, JR Rodrigues and Tony Morrata. If you have something to offer—as a musician or singer—you can sign up to sing or play your songs, too.

The other good word out there is Jen's good food. Every Thursday she brings in several different cheesecakes. (I understand strawberries and chocolate are going to be on one of those cheesecakes tonight.) And according to the Facebook invite, Jen is also cooking up some porknbeef meatball subs, steak fajita, grilled chicken with fresh basil and tomato quesadillas, beef n bean chili with cheese and onions and super nachos and build-your-own quesadillas.
