Cookin' in the Kitchen

I just stumbled upon these pics from almost four years ago on Rob Halper's blog.  Go to Rob's Blog to check out his vid from Bob Dylan's birthday last week.

Studio 12 regular Rob Halper is a long time member of the Church Street pit band, going back at least four generations in the evolving music scene here. Rob just punched his pit band card again Friday night at Tapastry Restaurant's first Troubador's Stage. In addition to being a talented singer, guitarist, bass player & jnj video macher, Rob also provided half of the genetic inspiration for Studio 12 regular pianist / singer Zach Halper.

Who knew that Rob is such a shamelessly self-promoting  blogger?  I have no idea who took the pictures, but I do know that Carrie Cantor was in the room.

Tapastry is Open

We're back in the saddle again!


The dog ran out on Tuesday & on Thursday we opened Tapastry Restaurant featuring the Classico Espanol cuisine of master tapas chef Gonzalo Fernandez. Everyone at our Cuatro de Mayo event is still talking about his Datiles con Tocino and Raxas con Patatas!

We'll have live outdoor music all weekend from Friday night til Memorial Day Brunch on Monday afternoon featuring our good friends Meg Beattie Patrick, John Finnegan, Carrie Cantor, Bob Cannon, Malcolm Marsden, Carl Croce & brunch special Pancakes O'Malley.

Studio 12 will remain, of course, on the second floor every Wednesday eve.
