Miranda Lee Richards & Speranza

Dinner and a show.
A rarity for the Mr. & myself- we are very much homebodies, and like to have friends come over, rather than go out. Last night though, we broke the pattern with the intervention of our friends David & Kelly, and had a beautiful meal at a little place in Silverlake called Speranza. Really good, authentic Italian food, the seating is mostly outdoors (the best kind in So. Cal).The prices are so reasonable (cheap, really) for the quality of the food you get-handmade pasta-! They have a BYOB policy, with NO corkage fee.
You heard me right...NO corkage fee. The vibe is accordingly bohemian...I swear we were seated next to Gregory Corso & the gang circa 1959 last night.

After our amazing and affordable meal, we were treated to a free show at the Silverlake Lounge- Miranda Lee Richards. Her voice is so beautiful, and her band is great. She's a wonderful singer- songwriter, and she was flawless live. I look forward to enjoying more of her music in the future.
