DogTrekker.com visited Sausalito’s free music celebration “Jazz & Blues By The Bay” last Friday evening and were amazed at the number of pups in the crowd. Breathtaking views of Angel Island and San Francisco are the backdrop to this weekly musical celebration that features different local jazz and blues performers each week.
Jazz & Blues By The Bay takes place every Friday night during the summer (May 31 – August 23, 2013) at Gabrielson Park in Sausalito. Food and refreshments are available for purchase from local non-profit groups, or you can bring your own picnic for you (please shop at local stores, deli’s and restaurants) and bones for Fido.
