Just took the Jazz to Laughs tour Friday. My girlfriend and I are huge jazz fans and we thought about hiring a driver to take us to the Fillmore but couldn't afford it. We'd been asking around for a tour company that had what we were looking for at a better price and found Road Trip: San Francisco Walking Tours totally by accident. Or maybe it was fate! Man, what a great time. The restaurant, Gussie's, the Jazz Heritage Center and John Coltrane's church all made the music we love so much come alive. Then how the owner, Mindy, tied in the culture to the Off Color Comedy show in North Beach just blew our minds. She really knows the nitty gritty of the city! Really fresh. We'd do a tour with her again in a heartbeat.

I just took the Jazz to Laughs tour this past Friday and it was great. As a hip hop artist I wanted to know more about the roots of this music and I learned all about it at the Jazz Heritage center. I had no idea how many famous musicians lived there and that there were still so many great clubs keeping the tradition alive. Think I'll write a song about the experience. And the chicken and waffles at Gussie's was amazing. And I'm still laughing at the jokes from the comedy club in North Beach. Stayed late to enjoy the dancing. Mindy is a recent transplant from New Orleans but knows San Francisco like she grew up here. Took us around like a local, which is what I wanted. Can't beat the experience for the price. Check her out!
