fat harold 2It’s Thursday and time for some FREE Line Dance Lessons at 7pm with Jeanette Stanley. You don’t need a partner, just come on out and learn some of the dances that when you feel the spirit hit you and your partner will not budge, you can get up and do your OWN thang! The club will open today at 4pm for Happy Hour. The grill WILL be opens for the best Cheeseburgers and FF on the beach. Not to mention those blackened Bologna sandwiches. I am drooling now. Oops, NO breakfast! In the booth tonite is “The Shadow”. When you finish your lessons you can shag until your feet drop off, that is if you can keep “The Shadow” on his toes. He’s got all of the music, just ask him. Tomorrow we open at 11am with the return of The Pork Chops. Miss Amy can cook em up as good as Lulu. Don’t know what sides she will be using but come see. The Sweet Tea is the bomb too. Later on in the evening is Friday Nite Dance Party Nite with DJ “Jammin” Jimmy Buffkin. Let’s rock this joint! We will open again at 11am on Saturday and the beer will be real cold. When you have had enough sun or your just “HOT” walk on down for a good cold brew. Happy Hour is 4 until 7pm daily, except on Wednesday. It lasts ALL DAY LONG on Wednesday. Saturday nite, you are in for a treat, when our Entertainment Director and Head Honcho DJ returns to the booth. DJ Gary (Jerry Franklin) Bass will keep you moving all night long. Get prepared for a fun weekend at the Fat Man’s House. By the way, he told me to tell you once again, “THANK YOU” for all of the cards, flowers and messages that you have been sending him. He IS getting everyone of them. He just smiles real big everytime I tell him that so and so has asked about him or the mail lady comes in with a hand full of cards. He has a dream and I for one think it is going to come true. You have to BELIEVE! Got to get to work but just thought I would cover the whole weekend while I was at it. I have a hard time leaving my yard in the cool morning hours to get on a computer on the weekends. So here you have it. Please come see us, if only for a little while. You never know who you might run in to in the World Famous Fat Harold’s Beach Club. Love YOU, Mean IT!

Woo Hoo, It’s Friday!

tgifHave you had a long week? Do you have SHAG FEVER? Is your liver doing the quiver? Then we have the cure for you right here at The Fat Man’s House! Come on out play tonite and cure all of your ailments. The Shag City Grill opens at 11am and Jackie is cooking up some Pork Chops, Mashed Potatoes w/gravy, green beans and cornbread, served with some good ole Southern Sweet Tea! I am making your mouth water, aren’t I? Then come on down for some lunch. Stick around for Happy Hour from 4 until 7pm. We have music going all day long. You can still dance even if there isn’t a DJ in the booth. We play really good music during the day. Speaking of DJ’s, you will dance to the music of DJ “Jammin” Jimmy Buffkin tonite. He cranks it up around 7pm. Come early and get a table. Friday nights are huge! Next Saturday nite is The Sandra Schwartz and Dewey Kennedy Mixed Doubles. There will be a show prior to the contest of todays dancers impersonating the dancers of yesterday. This was so much fun last year we decided to do it again this year. For those of you who didn’t know Sandra and Dewey, you missed it! They were two fine people and excellent Shaggers and missed very much in the Shag World. The sign up for entering the contest is 7pm with Dancing starting promptly at 9pm. Guest DJ Butch Metcalf will be your DJ! Get those applications in now for New Years Eve. They are literally pouring in like hot cakes. Looks like a PARTY brewing to me! For those of you who have purchased already, you may pick your cards up starting Dec. 2nd. I will be on vacation next week but cards will be ready to pick up on Monday Dec. 2nd! Your little red Christmas Party passes will be available then also. I might check in sometime during the week but I have someone who promised to keep the blog going while I am out. If I see it is not being done, then I might check in a few days. If you have questions about how to purchase your NYE tickets please give me a call and I will explain. It looks as if there might be a bit of confusion for the flyer and application on the website. If you email or send a message that you wants tickets and don’t fill out the form which is under the flyer (you must scroll down) I can’t print your tickets. All tickets must be paid for in advance unless you are purchasing them at the door the week of New Years’s and they might be gone. So get yours today and play it safe! Got to go now, I will be back with you in a few days! Love YOU, Mean IT!
