Out for a date night recently, my hubby and I went to a new place that we haven't been to before, Rucker Place, for Jazz on the Porch. It's in a beautiful historical home that was built in 1900.
Of course, I loved taking pics of it and enjoying the ambience of it all. It has 2 huge porches stacked on top of each other that wrap all around the house in the back and they have jazz there once a month.
I loved this big bay window with the shingles on the outside. So pretty! They also do weddings and receptions, as well as lots of other events here at the house.
Peter and I enjoyed our evening.
Wouldn't you love a porch this big?
Backside of the house. I loved this door and the brick.
You can see the two tiered porches here.
Shingles on the house were very unique. Birmingham has some beautiful architecture.
I ordered a BLT wrap and it was very good. It was served with a little bonus of boiled peanuts. You haven't lived til you've had boiled peanuts. Not sure, but this just might be a Southern delicacy. Anyone else have boiled peanuts from other parts of the country? I grew up eating these and my mom still makes up batches of them at home. YUM!
Normally, they have the jazz group out here under the pergola, but because of threatening rain, they had to move them inside for this night. Unfortunately, we didn't know to call and make reservations for inside and couldn't hear the music out on the porch where we were sitting, but it was still a fun atmosphere.
They put tables and chairs out here on the lawn and those seats are reserved (first come, first served) and then anyone else can make themselves comfortable up on the porches.
An arbor goes to the back door.
Next time we'll know to call and make reservations and then we'll enjoy a little more jazz on the porch.
My meeting with my new client went very well and I've already been shopping for her yesterday. It's going to be a fun little redo and she will allow me to share pics, so YAY for that. She will need a few accessories, rug, pictures, lamp, etc. so this will be very fun. I'm going out Tuesday to install it all and of course, I'll share with all of you.
Also the Birmingham Newspaper came out on Thursday to photograph our patio project for the paper. It will be running in the next 2 weeks, so I'll be sure to give you all a follow-up on that. They will also be printing my website link and I hope to get some new business from it. After a lengthy discusion with the reporter covering this redo, she found out all about my yardsale obsession and asked me if I'd like to do an article featuring yardsale tips and before and after projects. Would I?! That's a definite yes! She's coming back out next week to do that article. Y'all have a great weekend.
