Weekend Dancin' in Mount Vernon
Fri/Sat, July 14-15, 2017
Angel of the Winds casino has the usual evening & weekend live music offerings in their Watershed Lounge, but they also feature live music every Monday at lunch, from 11:00am to 3:00pm! This kind of thing happens all the time in Vegas, Austin, or Nashville, but this is Arlington. How cool is that? They hired a new chef in 2017, and the food is really good. Even if you're not a "casino" person, they have one of the best stages and sound/lighting systems around, with full-time sound engineers on staff. It's a great place for live music, whether you're on stage, on the dance floor, or lunch-listening. There's more: you can win prizes if you sign up for their rewards club. They have a $50 drawing on the hour from 11am to 2pm, and a $100 drawing at 3pm. If nobody claims one of the $50 prizes (which happens pretty often), they add it into the 3pm drawing. We've been playing music most of our (longish) lives, and this is one of the weirdest, coolest gigs ever. If you eat lunch on Mondays, enjoy good live music, and maybe want to dance a little instead of going to the gym, you should check it out.
The Big Lake Bar & Grill is an authentic roadhouse. Every weekend since forever, they have featured live music and fun times for East Mount Vernon and environs. There's an actual automobile on the stage. Part of one, anyway. It is also one of the few places (other than casinos) that hire bands for more than one night (or hour!) in a row. The food is good, they have prime rib every Friday, and there is always a good crowd of happy people there, for some reason. Go figure. We'll be there on Friday and Saturday.
