Last month, we went out to dinner with friends at The Spot in Pasadena. The featured entertainers for the evening, a quartet called the Fuzzy Logic Boptet, opened their first set with a jazz tune. I heard the front man wailing away on the saxophone. I looked up to see that the front man was a woman — Robin Rader.
Rader's mop of curly dark hair glinted in the spotlight as she swayed. Her cheeks billowed out; she blew the horn as though her life depended on it. What a show! Every Friday and Saturday evening, The Spot hosts a live band between 7 and 10 p.m.
Tapping our toes in time to the music, we perused the menu. Our friends chose tri-tip. Bob had catfish and I went with crawfish etouffee. The food was solid, carefully prepared and mildly spiced. Salads, sides and starters are sized for sharing at reasonable prices.
