The sun shines, a breeze stirs the leaves. It looks and feels like perfect weather for spreading out in the open air and relaxing to the sounds of live music while sipping a hearty Wisconsin brew.
But this is today. What about Saturday, June 20, when BIG WES Turner’s Trio is scheduled to perform at Tyranena Brewing in Lake Mills? Our fine forecasting friends rate the chance of a scattered thunderstorm better than even. When will we know for sure? Probably sometime Saturday afternoon. This is just the way it is. The Trio will be ready for our 6 to 9 pm gig, and only a downpour will keep us quiet, so check with Tyranena on Saturday to be sure.
Tasty Tyranena beers are sold and served out of the patio-side service window. Dr. Anthony Fauci would approve of Tyranena’s expansive patio and grassy knoll area--plenty of room for physical distancing. Bring your own food or sample tasty fare at the Cafe Costa Rica food cart. (Muy bien!)
If the rains DO come, fear not. Plan for the next big event at Tyranena—Friday, July 17, with none other than The Birddog Blues Band (featuring Mel Ford on guitar) playing the patio. Same hours: 6 to 9 pm. Same great beers. Different food cart: Doyle’s Dogs (authentic Chicago-style hot dogs and sandwiches). Same disclaimer: (Shine? Yes. Rain? No.)
And, as long as we can keep winning the weather lottery, consider visiting Vintage Brewing in Sauk City on Thursday, July 23. The Sparks Band revives 60s hits and wonders on Vintage’s spacious deck overlooking the Wisconsin River from 7 to 9 pm.
