Sweet Indulgence Highlights from March 10th at The Turquoise

We did it! We had our second Sweet Indulgence event at The Turquoise on March 10th and it was a wonderful. Not only did we have the lovely duo LOVE AMOS perform an early set, we also had Esencia Jazz Ensemble perform and several guest musicians arrived to celebrate during this evening. Local artist True Delorenzo created a patio full of his lovely paintings, with the assistance of David Goff; Hillary Young and Quentin Anderson created live art on-site as well as featured their latest works. Daniel Hardison showed his work for the first time at this venue -- several canvases filled with his beautiful vision and Richard ChauDavis took his blurry pictures and experiential photography to an entirely different level!

Local Pacific Beach business, Sugar and Scribe, featured edible art in the form of delicious cupcakes, tarts and truffles.

The Turquoise has delicious food -- salads, appetizers and an extensive selection on the dinner menu. We tried the Risotto (which was vegetarian) with cheese, anise, and delightful flavors. You'll also want to check out the tapas menu (which are on special for happy hour -- 5-7 p.m. daily).

The next Sweet Indulgence event will be on Thursday, April 14th at 5:30 p.m. with Steve Harris (of The Styletones and Stevie and the Hi-Stax) performing an early set. You will not want to miss this evening of soul, rhythm and blues and jazz by Esencia Latin Jazz Quartet!

Look forward to more amazing local talent with LIVE art and LIVE music for our delight. The ultimate love experience.
