If you want a wonderful Sunday morning, tune into the Sunday Brunch on WDCB or stream it live while you go about your day. If you want to have a marvelous Sunday, get dressed and go to the Sunday Brunch at Waterleaf Restaurant. Absolutely grand location, inside and out. The view is glorious. Floor to ceiling glass all around brings you as close to glorious landscape as possible. The décor is modern, yet warm and comforting. The wait staff is friendly and accommodating. The food is fabulous. We were treated to the music of the Bryan Lubeck Trio, a guitarist extraordinaire, while feasting.
It’s easy to find the other Smooth Jazzers seated around you. They’re the ones listening intently, keeping time with the music or chair dancing, all the others are ordinary patrons. I was seated next to Yvonne, a lady I know well from the Chat Box. She recognized me by my finger tapping I think. It was wonderful to put a face to the messages. When I thought it couldn't get any better, our host, Rick O’Dell, showed us to a large table populated with many of my other chat box friends! I sat next to ArtB. I was close enough to talk with Kelikamea and blow air kisses to CynC, CoraP, nikki, MargieM, and AngieS, but I missed out on meeting Retta and Cynthia. It was the like attending Bill Cochran’s Dinner Party on a Sunday afternoon.
My advice, the next time you see a Sunday Brunch date, make your reservation fast. It’s an amazing experience.
