Urban Onion Happy Hour, Music in the Park, and Maybe? Open Mic at the Pig Bar

Several of us enjoy Music in the Park on Wednesday evenings. The next one is August 14th. This week's band is Longstride - Reggae/Rock - Yay! Should be some good dancing music!

Here are links for Longstride:

It's nice to get there early (5:30ish), set out chairs/blankets and then hang across the street at the Urban Onion for an hour or so beforehand from about 5:30-7 for Happy Hour.

Urban Onion Happy Hour til 7: Beers start at $2/domestic. Be ready for most folks to make a mass exodus to the Park at 7 sharp!

Music in the Park 7-8: We are usually already set up right in front of the stage right next to the sidewalk where folks dance. It's in a beautiful setting, is free and the music is great.

Open Mic at Pig Bar: Afterwards, we can always head over to the Pig Bar (at South Bay BBQ just down the street at 619 Legion Way SE) for Open Music Mic Night hosted by Scott Lesman where beers start at $1.50 ...
and the local musical talent is really great!

5:30ish-7 Urban Onion
7-8 pm Music in the Park  (Sylvester Park downtown)
8:30ish South Bay BBQ Pig Bar - Note! Music starts after 9 pm

Don't be shy, show up and join us at any time of the evening!

    Too bad I didn't know ya'all were still going to get together even if not for the music in the park. Oh well.

      Nah, not now. I'm down for the count. Coming from Tac I need to know a little sooner. That's ok. I'll play with my new Samsung Galaxy S4. :)

      Sorry for the miscommunication. Apparently Music in the Park is always rain or shine! Urban Onion is still a 'go' on these nights either way. We did stand in the lite sprinkling for a few minutes, the music was great, but then we wimped out and headed over to the Pig early and had BBQ while we waited for the music to start. Hope to see you in the future!

    I had a really good experience for being a newby. Looking forward to next Wed meetup so I can experience the pig. :-)

    Also due to any chance of rain, the Pig Open Mic will move inside, which is still a cool experience ...

    Correction, I will leave work at 6 (sorry - am stuck here) and will be at Urban Onion shortly after. I'm wearing blue jeans and a maroon long sleeved Oklahoma Sooners peace sign shirt and, as usual, birks.

    Hmmm, it's raining ... I'm not sure about the turnout for the Music in the Park part of this event ... I'm still stuck at work, too ... For sure I will be at the Pig. Am trying to get to the Urban Onion by 6. Is anybody there wandering around aimlessly?

      I saw weather was starting to sprinkle here in Tacoma so I opted to stay home and not venture south because I didn't know if others were going to do the other stuff regardless.

      August 14, 2013

    • Mark O

      I am planning to show at the park. So maybe see u then.

    Sorry, but I'm just unable to attend most weekday Meetups; my job has me traveling outside the state during the weeks

  • Jeff

    I hope that this night I'll actually be able to attend. Last several events I was a no-show. Need to do something about that!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
