Summers are hot in Yuma but one of the very coolest places you can be is Lutes Casino for the Lutes Summer Jazz Series, featuring the Yuma Jazz Company Quintet and some captivating guest performers.  Also featured will be the venerable restaurant itself.  This much-loved historic establishment has great food, friendly service, and a collection of memorabilia (artwork? artifacts?) that has to be seen to be believed! It all adds up for some exciting and memorable evenings.
