This will be the 47th consecutive year the longest-running free jazz concert will occur in downtown Hartford's Bushnell Park. Concerts will begin July 6 and occur every Monday night through August 10th.  Also, the 24th annual Greater Hartford Jazz Festival will be held on July 17-19th.  A full feature including an exciting Hartford Girl FUN post is coming soon!  Soon the Hartford Jazz Society will update their website's jazz schedule here.
 
 
I must state the obvious: Music and food are recipes for an event run well. Offer great music and great food and folks will have a damned good time. This Hartford Girl FUN feature is brought to you by a love of live music and good food. My music-loving significant other will celebrate his big 3-O in the company of three wonderful live bands at Hot Tomato’s. Yes, this is the same restaurant that I decided to highlight via the Hartford Girl EAT feature. This event is FREE, features local (and not-so-local)artists, and is located at a wonderful establishment. I don’t know about you, but this one screams one of my favorite words: COMMUNITY. I’d be crazy not to share!
