Corned-Beef-and-Cabbage-300x224It’s that time of the year again and Jack is in the kitchen with the Corned Beef and Cabbage and, yes, you get to eat it tonight! Compliments of The Fat Man himself! We’ve always served it up the Wednesday night before St. Patty’s so we can show our appreciation for your patronage, and this year will be no different. Come out and wine and dine and take a few whirls around the dance floor with us tonight! Dinner will be served sometime between 6pm and 7pm. It going to be real good so get here early. The club will open at 4pm so come on out and get tuned up. We’ll be seeing your Irish smiling eyes when you get here. Don’t forget the Benefit for Jeppy White on Thursday. Sissy Patti is coming in all the way from Charlotte to fix her award winning spaghetti for you. Dinner will start at 6pm. There will be a $10 admission with all proceeds going directly to Jeppy to help battle the bills of cancer. He hopes to be there and join CWB on stage at 8pm for a super show. It will be one of the last for CWB as The Craig Woolard Band before Craig and the band go on to bigger and better things. This will be one for the record books ladies and gentlemen. I can almost feel the tears in the beers right now. Please make an effort to be here and support Jeppy and his adorable wife Susan. This will be a farewell show for CWB at Fat Harold’s since the rolls are changing. SO BE HERE! We have some awesome silent auction items and there will also be a 50/50 drawing. If you have anything that you would like to donate for the silent auction please bring it by the club on Wednesday so that we can get it all together. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Love YOU, Mean IT!

steve-owensIt’s the last official day of Mid-Winter Break. From the looks of it you have had a pretty large time. We are glad that you spent most of your time at The Fat Man’s House. We tried our best to make it a great weekend for you all! Those who like to just dance, those of you who like bands, those of you who like to drink, eat and just sit back and gaggled with your friends and those of you who like to watch our future grow with our wonderful dance “The Shag” in our youth. Great things are happening at Fat Harold’s and will continue to do so as long as we all shall live! Don’t listen to anything that doesn’t come out of our mouths for it may not be true. WE love you all, whether you don’t drink (maybe you can’t), whether you bitch all the time (maybe your bored) and whether you just don’t like us (maybe you have lost your ever loving …). We still love you and cater to you just like everyone else. There will always be complaints and criticism’s. Some we actually learn from and some that we dump way out in the beautiful ocean that attracts all of you to this area. We are HUMAN. We, make MISTAKES. BUT this weekend we’ve hit a home run. We want you to leave here with love in your hearts for The Gang at Fat Harolds, The Shag, North Myrtle Beach and all of the surrounding business establishments. Without YOU, there would be NO US! But before you pack up and head out we are opening at 11am so you can get that last bloody mary or blackened bologna sandwich. (We will fix to go orders so you can have one for the road)! IF you are not leaving please join us at 4pm for one of Beach Music’s newest stars, STEVE OWENS & Summertime. A crowd pleaser for sure. Steve once said to me, “If I can’t play live music, I’m not gonna play”! So come on out and listen to them play. You don’t get to hear them every weekend or every other weekend like you can some of the other bands so join us for some last minute FUN, FUN, FUN! Their music is sooooo shagable. Have I created at new word this am? Guess I better get my buttocks to work. See you in a minute. Love YOU, Mean IT! PS. There will be no cover charge today!

Bring cash cause you are going to see some stuff even you wish you could do! Many thanks to these kids who are keeping the tradition. Can’t wait and will see you there!

harolds-cwbIt’s here! Are you ready to party. We are. The club opens at 11am. Come down and get some of those good ole blackened bologna sandwiches or cheeseburgers to get your day started. We have an array of DJ’s through out the day and at 9pm our good buddies CWB will hit the stage to entertain you. We just love The Craig Woolard Band and hope you will join in the fun! Get those SOS cards so you don’t have to pay a cover charge at any of the clubs on Main Street. Check out the calendar on the website for a line up of everything going on for the next 4 days. I will keep you posted the best that I can. Have a wonderful day and if you would like to made a donation for Jeppy White, the singing trombone player, who is beating Pancreatic Cancer please do so. Debbie Woolard or Craig will take the donations to them or you never know, Jeppy just might show up. Make checks out to Susan or Jeremy White. All donations will be greatly appreciated. Jeppy had no insurance at the beginning of this horrid ordeal and let’s just say if you ever have had something of this magnitude happen to you a little help goes a long way. Have a safe trip to the beach and we have the music and the libations ready! Love YOU, Mean IT!

What a wonderful way to end a year. Paying it forward to a talented musician with a smile as wide as the Mississippi River. It will be much appreciated, I know. Been there, done that. Just a different C-word. Along with DJ Jimmy Buffkin in the front room, DJ Milton White will be knocking it down in the back room. Let’s fill The Fat Man’s House with love and fun this evening.
