    Is it possible to subscribe to your Out to Lunch calendar with my smartphone (iCal)?

    If not, it would be a great capability…

    Wondering who the surprise guest is this week and if there have been any changes to the lunch concert series!

    Thank you for out to lunch concerts. Pokey LaFarge was wonderful – and Pearl Django as always.
    Very impressed with Vintage Trouble (except that Ty’s smooth voice was drowned out by his musicians most of the time – he’s reminiscent of Sam Cooke with a little James Brown thrown in.

    I was disappointed that their venue was Occidental Sq. Pioneer Sq. is dead on early weekday evenings. There were so few passers by and the audience sparse. Vintage Trouble deserved better. Wish they’d had the Harbor Steps. I hope he agrees to come back after that paltry attendance.

    Possibly a noontime concert at Occidental Square would have filled the audience better than evening?

    Thanks again for all you do.
