Monica, let's just be honest with each other and admit that this could be the secret rendezvous we've been dreaming about :2hearts: .

It's time to come clean!. Just you and me, dinner, Einadi concert and, well you get the picture ;\) :3hearts: !

Good luck to anyone planning to attend. I'll have to wait it out for something a bit closer to my neck of the woods (which will be without leaves and likely dusted with snow a few times by Nov 20.)

Let's just say I'm running into a little resistance on the home front, when I asked my hubby if it was okay for me to fly to SF for a couple of days to attend a concert at someplace called the Bimbo Club[/b] with a mr_super-hunky[/b]. \:D

Actually, the problem is that hubby has a major coin show he has to attend those same dates. So I need to find somebody (a) I trust, who (b) is willing and able to stay with the children for two days.

I'm going to go ahead and order a ticket for the concert now, though, just so I don't get shut out. Worst case scenario is that I can't go and end up wasting the fifty bucks.

Okay, I'm now the proud owner of a ticket to the Einaudi show!!

It's general admission, so if I'm going to all the trouble of flying out from Lexington, Kentucky, I'm gonna be in line five hours before the doors open to get a good seat.

Hooray, Monica!

Will this make you an official Einaudi "Bimbo"?...very Einaudi of you.

I'm sure your hubby remembers the Madonna arrangement. :p

I'll be happy to serve as a chaperone for you and the Hunkster, if you believe it necessary. \:D

Enjoy your trip, the concert, and your shoeless bare feet once "settled in". :rolleyes:

I don't, but the hubby might. \:D

Seriously, if anybody from the forum is going to be there, we should arrange to get together and grab lunch or something before getting in line for good seats. I haven't made my flight reservations yet but I'll probably arrange to arrive the day before just to allow for Delta to screw up the way it always does. :rolleyes:

If it does, Mr. Super-Hunky may be disappointed. "Bimbo" means "little boy." Of course, it is San Francisco.

Mr. Bimbo was still alive when I first went there, although his son-in-law ran it then. Now his grandsons run it.

It is one of the most elegant night clubs in San Francisco.

No offense intended as this banter is all in fun, but you may wish to check-out Dictionary.com definitions of "Bimbo"... especially No. 3.

I know that your observation about the elegance of Bimbo's 365 club is correct.

Have a great day, \:D

BDB, have you been to concerts there? Do people sit in rows of seats or is it more of a table/chairs setup? Are people quiet during the performances or do people talk and eat throughout the show?

It is tables and chairs. How quiet the show is depends on the show and the audience. There are drinks, but no food.

You probably will not have to get there really early.

Parking can be difficult. You may want to take the Muni. The 30 bus and the Powell-Mason St. cable car stop within a block. The 9X, 47 bus, F streetcar, and Powell-Hyde cable car are a bit farther away. (There are others, but I am restricting myself to lines that run at night.) The two cable car lines start at the same place, so if you want the Mason line, check the signs, as tourists often just take the first car to come along. Cable cars are $5 each way, everything else is $1.50.

Works fine for me. Actually, I thought you would know about it. With a name like Super-hunky, I would suspect you would be there October 3 or 4. \:\)

BDB, for some reason I still cannot get your link to work as it just comes up "network error".

I have a pathetically slow wild blue (they suck) satelite internet connection which is broadband so maybe the problem is with my provider.

Monica, thanks for providing the link as that comes up fine. Now I've got to try and see if I can make it for the show but I'll have to bring my wife as she does'nt trust me alone; especially if she knows Monica will be there \:D !

Guess now it's my turn to be jealous of you all!!

America is out the question, and I don't live in England anymore, so journeying to London is a bit much.

Ludovico, if you are reading this, scrap these other concerts and come back to Scotland instead ;\)

Okay, so I debated this for a couple of days and asked if it was worth many hundreds of dollars to indulge a mini-midlife crisis, and I finally convinced myself that the year I am on sabbatical and not teaching might be my best--perhaps only?--chance to go see Einaudi play, so I just bought (nonrefundable) plane tickets for SF. I am REALLY going to hear Enaudi play LIVE!!

I'm going to bring along my Einaudi sheet music books too in the hopes I can get an autograph like Euan did. \:\)

Monica that is SOOO cool for you . You'll be representin girl! haha \:D .

I know cameras are not allowed but maybe we can rig one up on you anyway. Maybe a lapel pin cam or something. Then you can sell the bootleg tapes, make millions and buy everyone nice new grands \:\) .

Please do it.

Oh Wow! Some PW members coming to the Bay Area-an opportunity to meet other members! Any Bay Area residents willing to host a piano party? My better piano is out in the shop(regulation work) and my Kimball is certainly not party worthy...Any takers?

In a similar vein, are there any piano stores that sell Steingraebers or Faziolis in SF? Those are two brands I've never tried but am very eager to do so. I'll have free time Thurs. during the day to window shop and/or meet up with anybody.

Steingraeber, Sauter, and Fazioli concert grands are right across the bridge from SF. Piedmont Pianos carry the Faz and the R.Kassman's in Berkeley carries the other two.

Could I get a count of how many are planning on attending the show? I might be able to arrange something. No promises, though.

You know, this got me thinking. If Einaudi is willing to perform at a smaller club (as compared to a large capacity venue) for $50.00, could'nt we all just literally hire him to perform for us at a mutually agreeable time/place/location?.

If you think about it, it would be a win/win situation. Einaudi has an opportunity to possibly make more money (by having more attendies) as well as perform for his target audience (people who will buy his albums, sheet music) and all of us who are willing, can go see him perform live in concert.

Who wants to broker this deal?
