Our next Sunday at Aunt Chilada's will be from 6 to 8 PM on April 16 with Fred Vigorito, Noel Kaletsky, Russ Whitman, Charlie Freeman, Art Hovey, Joel Schiavone, and Tom Boates. The GJB has performed monthly at Aunt Chilada's (usually on the third Sunday of the month) since July of 2009 with the exception of the Covid year. Known since 1993 as the best Mexican restaurant in the greater New Haven area, Aunt Chilada'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 a seat at the bar. There is no cover charge, and no minimum. We'll be there again on May 21.
