Vic Stewart's Restaurant, one of the Bay Area's most beloved independent steakhouses, has reached an agreement with Jim Hudak for three weeks of lunchtime piano performances next month. Starting December 3rd, Hudak will perform between 11:30 AM and 2:00 PM Monday through Friday at the legendary East Bay restaurant. This will be the fifth December in a row that Hudak will weave holiday music into his own unique selection of songs on the piano at Vic Stewart's. The family owned restaurant operates as strictly a dinner house for 11 months a year, but opens for lunch on weekdays in December until Christmas. "Ostensibly, they hire me to play lots of Christmas songs and help create a festive atmosphere in the restaurant," Hudak said recently. "Which I'm happy to do, of course. But they also give me the freedom to work in my other songs, from originals to jazz and classical and yes, some rock and roll, blues, and even some country. You know, the crazy mix of stuff that I always play. But after all, it is the Christmas season, so the emphasis is on Christmas and Holiday music. It's a fun gig, and I'm delighted that they want me back again this year." Vic Stewart's is located in a building that was the original train station in Walnut Creek. It has special seating and dining available in a railroad car, and also features several private rooms for banquets and parties. The restaurant books hundreds of office Christmas luncheons each December, and also provides shoppers from nearby Broadway Plaza a nice break for lunch. Located at 850 South Broadway in Walnut Creek. Vic Stewart's phone number is (925) 943-5666. Reservations are highly recommended. Happy Holidays, and see you at Vic's!
