Friday at the Fish N Pig
Let the good times keep on rolling! A cruel trick was played on us by having July Fourth fall on a Thursday and then we have to go back to work on Friday before we start the weekend. Well jokes on you, whoever made this years calendar! Southern Persuasion is bringing their good time country music to the Fish N Pig on Friday. Enjoy good food, cold cocktails and a nice breeze on the deck as we keep the celebration rolling. All ages. 7:30 p.m. Free admission.
Friday at the Hummingbird Stage and Taproom

Without a doubt its whiskey fueled and full steam ahead. Call up your friends and get them all together for a night of foot stomping and dancing! 21 and up. 10 p.m. $5.
Saturday at the Hummingbird Stage and Taproom
Carrolltons Mile Train plays music that fits perfectly in a dark, smoky room. While rock n roll is undoubtedly an influence on this young band, their love of the blues runs deep and they wear it on their sleeve for all to see and hear. Their blues guitars and traveling man lyrics should be enjoyed with a smoke in one hand and a whiskey in the other. 21 and up. 10 p.m. $5.
