On January 5, Bob Popescu, founder and co-owner of Catalina Bar & Grill Jazz Club, died at home of a heart attack. Bob, who always operated behind the scenes and out of the limelight, was instrumental in the conception and development of the Tasty Tuesdays series at the club. He helped launch and nurture countless music careers. On behalf of the entire Tasty Tuesday family, we share our grief with everyone whose life Bob touched.

The funeral will be held Thursday at 1 p.m. at Hollywood Forever Cemetery, 6000 Santa Monica Blvd. (at Gordon) in Hollywood.
