Held every Thursday from 6-9pm, enjoy free live music on the lawn. We’ll be serving wine, sangria & Madhouse beer by the glass ($5) as well as grilling up burgers & brats ($6). We’ll have regular appearances by the Chocolaterie Stam gelato cart – yes, you can even have a wine or beer gelato float – as well as the Gusto Pizza truck. We will have some chairs/tables, but it’s not a bad idea to bring some chairs or blankets as well. As a reminder, all ages are welcome but please leave the pets at home. And since it’s a free event, please celebrate the evenings enjoying our wine and beer (other alcoholic beverages will need to stay at home). Yay for summer!
