DEAR READERS:  
 
WHAT HAPPENED AT AJ'S LAST SATURDAY: 
 
It was pretty much a sold out audience, even though the number of singers was only half what we usually have so we all got to do more than 2 songs if you stayed. What did we sing? Well JOEL BAKER sang "It's A Grand Night Of Singing", Only A Paper Moon", "Night And Day", and "My Favorite Year", I did "You Can't Take That Away From Me", "I Could Write A Book", "Love Me Or Leave Me", and "Old Friend". MAX MITCHELL dropped in just to sing "It's Much Nicer In Nice", GEORGE LOUIS did "Lady In Spain", BARBARA FRANTZ "I Took A Trip On A Train", "Love Potion #9", "I'm Beginning To See The Light", and "Mean To Me", LINDSEY OUELLETTE "Too Close For Comfort", "The More I See You", and "Time After Time" with "Just In Time", RAFE CORRELL "Day In Day Out", "Come In From The Rain", LESLIE TINNARO "Don't Rain On My Parade", "The World Goes Round", "I Could Have Danced All Night", and "Over The Rainbow", JASON HULL "All You Get From Love Is A Love Song", "We're Alone", "I Wish You Were Here", "It's Getting Better All The Time", and "I Think I'll Write A Song", NONI LAMBERTSON "A Very Precious Love", "Almost Like Being In Love", and "Summertime, JIM our server "What Are You Doing The Rest Of Your Life", and "Don't Take Your Love Away From Me", TONY our host "God Bless The Child" and "When I Fall In Love". So that was it for another fabulous night of talent. This coming Saturday we will have one of the desert's foremost pianists and musical directors filling in for Joel, the one and only DENIS MOREEN. He works with numerous singers around the valley as well as symphonies and choirs and has played for us many times and is always a treat. So come out and sing or just come for the show. 
 
And remember:  
 
RESERVATIONS FOR DINNER ARE HIGHLY RECOMMENDED -
call 760-202-1111 DURING BUSINESS HOURS: Breakfast, Lunch or after 5 PM.
 
DO NOT LEAVE A MESSAGE ON THEIR MACHINE

GREAT NEWS:

AJ'S ON THE GREEN was recently awarded BEST LIVE ENTERTAINMENT VENUE for 2017 by THE DESERT SUN - the second year in a row.

And now it's time for the annual PALM SPRINGS LIFE MAGAZINE "BEST OF THE BEST" FOR 2017.
This one is a little different because there are no choices to be made. Instead, you pick the city, then the category, then just type in the name and click VOTE. To make it easy for you I have included the direct link to vote for BEST OF THE BEST - CATHEDRAL CITY. There are a lot of categories that AJ's qualifies for so vote for them ALL! For some very odd reason there is not a LIVE ENTERTAINMENT category?? But you can vote for best burger, best cocktails, steakhouse, breakfast, etc.

PLEASE, won't you YELP US and tell your friends too that we have the best singers in town and we do it LIVE!  EVERY YELP HELPS
 
AJ'S NOTE: There is a HUGE parking lot just past the front lot on your left. Remember to make reservations and see you next time.

    Flatten chicken breasts between sheets of plastic wrap or waxed paper to 1/2-inch thickness.

     

    Dip chicken into egg mixture, then coat with Bisquick mixture. Place on pan.

     

    Spray chicken with cooking spray.
