Location: Manor Steakhouse, 830 Memorial Drive, Oakland, MD.
Description: Christiana and Mike Gellar are returning to the beautiful Manor Steakhouse in Mountain-Maryland. Last time, we were a hit, and we definitely want to live up to that again. Oh, and the food alone there is worth the trip. Make a reservtion, and ask to be in one of the rooms where you'll hear the live music. That will be our intimate Jazz Duo, with Standards, Bossa Nova, Bebop, Samba, and the Blues. No crying in your beer until the last set. No cover.
