Blue Jay Listening Room held a soft opening event Aug. 12 in Jacksonville Beach with a night of drinks, stories and live music by country artist Kyle Jennings. The evening began with an emotional speech delivered by owner Cara Burky, who thanked friends, family members, donors and contributors who helped prepare the venue for its soft opening.
