Diner’s Agenda loves thunderstorms.
Wednesday, August 8
•Seriously, how is today Wednesday? Shouldn’t it be Thursday by now? If you’re as anxious about this as we seem to be, why not take in some relaxing jazz? The Cava Cocktail Lounge at The Ivy hosts JRO Jazz tonight from 7pm-11pm. The best part? No cover. [The Ivy]
•If you’d rather not schlep downtown for your jazz fix (tonight is, after all, probably going to be riddled by thunderstorms), make your way to UpStairs on the Square after 9:00. The Monday Club will be hosting hot jazz from local bands. There’s a $5 cover for non-diners, but why not make an evening out of it and get dinner first? [UpStairs on the Square]

•Alone In The Kitchen With An Eggplant, a collection of essays about the challenges and pleasures of dining alone, has been generating great buzz. See why people are getting so excited at 7:00 at Brookline Booksmith. Editor Jenni Ferrari-Adler and writers Steve Almond and Laura Dave will be there to read and discuss. [Brookline Booksmith]
