There's always good and bad with finding that perfect place to dance or simply listen to tunes.
A spot might be too cramped. It might not serve food. The cover charge might be seriously steep.
But then there's the Original Farmers Market, the one at Third and Fairfax, the one that your grandmama shopped at and you probably do, too. They've got the best dancing sitch in the city come summer time, courtesy of the famous Summer Music Series.
The 2010 Summer Music Series opens on Thursday, May 27, and happens every Thursday and Friday through Friday, September 10.
So, let's mark it off. The dancing is outside (okay, it can get tight, but only because so many people are having a good time; you can make your own space to swing, promise, even if it is off in a corner). Food is served nearby, of course. The best food, and the best variety. Chili fries and Korean barbecue and dark ales to boot.
And there is no cover charge.
