spa-contest=labordayThe contest continues tonight. Come out and see the best of the best! But first, you have to come in at lunch (11am) and try out Jackie’s delicious Chicken Salad Plate. Chicken Salad, Potato Salad and Pasta Salad piled high on a bed of lettuce. This is good folks. Come early before she runs out! Don’t forget Sam and Lisa will be teaching a workshop on The Fat Man’s floor at 1pm. There will be 2 separate classes. One a 1pm and the other at 2pm. The first is Intermediate Together Steps and the second at 2pm will be Intermediate and Advanced Turns. $10 per person, per class. Come and get your shag on with one of my favorite Juniors shaggers from 25 years ago. I love you Sam West! We are hoping to get our hands on the old videos from when Sam, Matt, Little David, Lisa, Leslie, The Caruso boys and many others performed back in the 80’s at Harold’s Across the Street. Keep your fingers crossed and stayed tuned. I have them in my head but that won’t do any of you any good will it? Come out tonight and see some mighty fine dancing. DJ Butch Metcalf will be in the booth playing the music and Janet Harrold will be directing the contest. If you just don’t get in to contests and we know many of you don’t and would like to dance yourself all you have to do is head to the back room for libations with Mama Brenda and the excellent music of DJ Eddie Baker. We aim to please, something for everybody. Tomorrow night (Sunday) DJ “Jammin” Jimmy Buffkin will bring on “Steve Owens and Summertime” at 9pm. Jimmy starts playing at 7pm so get here early for a table and a few cocktails and spins around the floor to set the mood. It’s going to be a FUN night. Hope to see you at The Fat Man’s House! Peace, Love and Sandy Feet! Love YOU, Mean IT!



blackwater-rbThe club opens at 11am for lunch, then we are on our way to Happy Hour. Just when you think you’ve had enough, DJ “Jammin” Jimmy Buffkin is going to strike up the music and Jeanette is going to invite you to the floor for Free Line Dance Lessons and at 9pm we have Blackwater Rhythm and Blues for your enjoyment. NO COVER. Just come and party. These guys have more energy than the bunny himself. They have established themselves in the Carolina’s as a premier Party Band. They play every song that you know the words to and if you don’t watch it, you’ll have a microphone in your face singing with them. Greg and Dale can be kind of sneaky! We welcome my hometown boyz to the stage at 9pm. Come show them some love cause they are gonna love all over you! That’s how we do it in the swamp! They have a great horn section and their vocals are gonna WOW you! We will see you tonite at The Fat Man’s House! Peace, Love and Sandy Feet! Love YOU, Mean IT!
