We have a special Thursday night planned: we will be visiting the
Bluebird Cafe for a night
of "In the Round" musical entertainment (and dinner).
Shuttle buses will run from the 3 conference hotels (Days Inn Vanderbilt,
Courtyard by Marriot Vanderbilt, and Loews Vanderbilt Plaza) and return
you to these hotels after the show.
Opened in 1982 as a casual restaurant with some live music, the Bluebird
Cafe has become a music club first and restaurant second.
It has gained a reputation worldwide for presenting the
best original acoustic music seven nights a week. An important part
of the Bluebird tradition is the "In the Round"
format. Four talented writers sit in a circle and share songs, stories,
and inspiration. The audience is given a unique opportunity
to hear great original material from four different points-of-view
in a casual, comfortable environment.
