There’s a brand new venue in town called Your Mother’s Living Room that certainly lives up to its name. Located at 8001 SE 72nd Ave, just two blocks south of Flavel, it is indeed as comfortable as a living room. PE&D writer and friend Lauree Carlsen joined this writer to check out the new spot.
Dining room tables, a TV/stereo, a nice hutch with glassware, books, artwork adorning the walls and a small stage for performances combine to welcome you to the quaint space. And the interesting twist is, if you like any of the items you see, you can buy it because it’s a thrift store too!
If you’re hungry, just ask what’s for dinner, as it’s whatever “mom” is cooking that night! This particular evening, it was delicious home-made spaghetti and meatballs, with garlic bread, served piping hot with parmesan cheese. It was quite a generous serving with enough left over for a couple more meals! The wine was also divine.
Donna and Michael Beaudin recently opened the new venue that features live, local low-volume music. This night, Donna performed her outstanding vocals with the fine Erik Burch on guitar and vocals. This duo sounds like a match made in heaven. Even though they just started playing together, you would think they had made music together forever!
