The Insiders: Catch some swinging live jazz

With the new year just a mere four days away, it’s not too early to start thinking about those good ’ol resolutions.

It is never a good idea to head into the final hour of the year without one in mind because then it turns into a rash decision and no one wants to stick with a poor choice for the next 365 days. Trust us, we are speaking from experience. Sure wish that resolution from 2003 had been more thought out.

So if you are like us and have no interest in going to a store or seeing a single person outside of your house, then sit down with a pen and paper and start brainstorming. Some of you may want to shed a few pounds, others may want to gain a couple. Do you want to stop biting your nails? Or do you hope that a diet made up of only fruits and vegetables is in your near future? Well now is your chance.

The new year brings so much promise that the possibilities are endless, but just make sure whatever you select will last more than a day. It sure will embarrassing next December when everyone else is looking back at their successful resolutions and you’re sitting in the corner with a look of failure all over your face. Again, trust us.

So get thinking about those resolutions and remember it is never too early to start. Do you really want to be part of the crowd that waits till Jan. 1 to get things started or would you rather have an advantage over the competition? We think the decision is an easy one.

And if your resolution has anything to do with seeing more live jazz music, then you are in luck. The Swunk Brothers will perform tonight at 7:30 at Hermanos Cocina Mexicana. Thankfully they did not choose the Skunk Brothers because people could be expecting to see the first and only band made up of a family of skunks. And wouldn’t that be a disappointing way to begin a night of sweet jazz music.
