The weather was chilly. I wore little black dress and heels. Anything from jeans to a full suit is appropriate. Not cold in restaurant..

Latin Jazz concert at Pampas Grill. The food was terrific, the jazz was wonderful, and a great time was had by all of us. Our 89-year old grandfather even got up and danced -- what fun!

More Information


In the midst of the growing popularity of Latin music, Caballero Music offers some of the finest authentic entertainment. San Antonio-born trumpeter Bill Caballero and the high-caliber musicians in his Cuarteto Caballero will play a wide array of Latin instruments. With Cuban transplant Ignacio Arango now on guitar, his usual part of electric bass will be played by San Diegan Kevin Freeby. On percussion is longtime San Diego percussionist/drummer Pablo López.
