You'd never know it was just past season at Mercato.  Popular reggae band Jahgape had a healthy crowd up and dancing throughout their sets. There was even a small contingent of both adults and kids demonstrating the Hula Hoop to the sounds.   Several in the crowd said the combination of great live music along with food and drink specials at the restaurants made for a great night out.  Keep an eye on Mercato the first Thursday of the month for upcoming live music and specials.
