Meet Stan. / by Thomas Nguyen

Stan is one of the Russian table tennis players  at Club JOOLA.  And even though he is Russian, I swear he eats even more Vietnamese food then I do.  I always see him at Pho Hoa Binh and have even joined him (as you can see in the photo)

Stan is a very personable guy and always fun to talk to.  He's local Jazz musician and plays the saxophone.  He use to play with the Naval Academy, but now has his own group, The DC Jazz Connect.  Currently he plays on Thursday nights at the Paper Moon in Georgetown.  However starting next year, he'll also be playing at some hotels as well.  I'll keep you posted.  But in the meantime, check him out when you get the chance!
