An hour of magic with the late (and more than great!) Bobby Short at the fanciest of fancy Carlyle Hotel on 72nd Street in New York City.
Lester the Nightfly – Meet Mr. Bobby Short.
Your host, PJ Ewing (aka PJDJ) brings you some personal stories of nights at the Carlyle. And we have a special guest… yep… mom! Mary Sue Ewing shares how a family fascination with “all things Bobby” came about back in the early 1970’s.

You get to join us for an evening… then we can meet at Bemelman’s Bar afterwards to pretend we own railroads or diamond mines… and hobnob with the regular snooty (but fun to appreciate) wealthy patrons. I’ll have a $25 vodka gimlet (just one!)… what will you have?
