CHANGES…

Manager Kirk Hampton says the lunch hours were dropped to keep the focus on the dinner menu and the contemporary jazz acts presented nightly. For information, call 214-823-2725.

A TIME TO GIVE…

It’s easy to be charitable Wednesday nights at Tiger Bull’s Family Restaurant, 362 Abrams-Forest Shopping Center: The restaurant is donating 15 percent of your meal’s cost to the church of your choice. Owner Mark Russell says: “Everyone wins doing this. We’ve been successful in the community and like to give something back. “The restaurant also partners with neighborhood schools and school organizations for a similar deal on other nights.

MUSIC IN THE AFTERNOON…

Jazz lovers can get their fix without staying up all night by checking out the Sunday Afternoon Jazz Series from 2-5 p.m. at Galveston Island Seafood Restaurant, Skillman at Royal. Manager Dick Wisenbaker got the idea from growing up in Boston, where the afternoon shows offered an alternative for those who couldn’t get to the big clubs. Galveston’s has sponsored the shows every Sunday for almost 10 years. This month’s line-up includes local artists Phyllis Emert Nov. 9, Tommy Loy Nov. 16, Henry Munoz Nov. 23, and Jack Allday Nov. 30. For information, call 214-348-8844.
