It's almost time for Music in the Park to start up again every Wednesday starting July 10th from 7pm-8pm. I like to get there early, set out my chairs, pick up my raffle tix, and hang at the Urban Onion for an hour or so beforehand for Happy Hour. Do one or both and/or even possibly join us for Open Mic Music night at the Pig Bar just 5 blocks down Legion.
Here are some links with more information:
You can Google the bands or find their Facebook pages to hear examples of their music, but why not just go? It's in a beautiful setting (Sylvester Park) and is free; they hold free raffles which are fun, and the music is great. Sometimes there is even dancing!
Afterwards, we might head over to the Pig Bar (at South Bay BBQ just down the street at 619 Legion Way SE) for Open Music Mic Night where beers start at $1.50 a draft ... if the weather is warm, the music is outdoors, too! You'd be surprised at the local talent!
Here is a snippet on the July 10th Music in the Park: "Who are the R & B fans out there???
