Ellwood Thompson's summer health classes; Musselduck's Restaurant has the lock on great dinnertime jazz 

Tastemakers

The folks at Ellwood Thompson's love to talk shop. And it's always about getting healthy. If they're not trying to convince you of the benefits of detoxification through juicing, they're giving a dissertation about the wonders of cooking with natural herbs. One thing's for sure: If you just made your 10th trip to the ice-cream parlor this week, one of ET's summer health classes might be the perfect guilt remedy — a new start, a clean slate, an excuse for trip number 11.

Whatever your reason for attending, you might want to make reservations because classes are small and fill up fast. Here are some highlights coming up in the next couple of months — "The Basics of Natural Foods Cooking" June 28 (Bellgrade); "Introduction to Herbs and Herbal Cooking" July 10 (Bellgrade); "The Art of Juicing and Detoxification" July 26 (Carytown). 897-5300.

on Harrison Street near VCU has the lock on great dinnertime jazz. During a recent trip we found Ras Mel subbing for pianist Kevin Teasley. Mel's jazz guitar was low-key but sublime. As the sly notes floated over the tables, they helped our wine create a buzz and made us sure that a return trip was in the future. Musselduck's offers jazz Thursday through Saturday. Ras Mel appears often — call ahead for reservations and information. 411 N. Harrison St.
