Best Resurrection Of Tradition: Victory Grill

When this venerable Eastside legend re-opened over a year ago, we were thrilled. We're even more thrilled to see the venue thriving with its emphasis above and beyond music. In the past year, the Victory Grill has hosted poetry readings. book receptions, dance performances, and art exhibitions, plus the kind of blues and jazz that are at the heart of our town's musical tradition.
