The days immediately after Christmas always give me a bit of post-holiday-depression. After weeks of chaos, it’s time to unwind from the relentless schedule of holiday cheer with pianist Cole Thomason-Redus at the R3 Hotel piano bar. Thomason-Redus is a San Francisco native classical capable of entertaining audiences in any setting, from the theater to the symphony hall, to the casual crowds of west Sonoma County. This special holiday weekend of music is the perfect chance to enjoy a cocktail and swoon along, when Cole Thomason-Redus tickles the ivories on Friday and Saturday, Dec. 26–27, at R3 Hotel, 16390 Fourth St., Guerneville. 8pm. 707.869.8399.
