On Thursday night, Steph and Ayesha Curry delighted the folks at Black Cat with an impromptu jam session at the Tenderloin jazz club. The couple attended Hamilton earlier in the evening before heading to Black Cat for bites and drinks. According to SFist, the Currys enjoyed oysters, kale salad, meatballs, and the saffron chicken. The manager, Khalid Mushasha, shared a video of Curry playing a tambourine, while Ayesha posted one of her playing the piano.
