Our next session will be from 6 until 8 PM on December 16 with Fred Vigorito, Russ Whitman, Noel Kaletsky, Charlie Freeman, Art Hovey, Bob Bequillard, Joel Schiavone, Tom Artin, and vocalist Cynthia Fabian. Known since 1993 as the best Mexican restaurant in the greater New Haven area, Aunt C's is located at 3931 Whitney Avenue, just a couple of miles north of Sleeping Giant in Hamden, beside the golf course. Seating is somewhat limited; please call 203-230-4640 to reserve a table, or just come anyway and sit at the bar. There is no cover charge, and no minimum.
