RAGTIME WILLI SEZ:6/25/14
The Ragtime Willi Band takes on a new venue this Friday - sort of. We'll be returning to our favorite river-town bistro, Shank's Tavern, but for our first-ever outing on Shank's patio. It has all the great food , drink and corner-bar feel of the tavern, but with a great outdoor ambiance. Check it out atwww.shankstavern.com. Music starts at 6 and runs until 9. And no cover, no minimum. How can you lose?
Then on Saturday we'll return to Building 24 in Wyomissing for yet another evening of music, starting at 6:30 and going until 9:30. Lots to eat, lots to drink, and lots of tunes. And again, no cover, no minimum. Details at bldg24live.com.
