harolds-cwbThe grill opens at 11am so come on out and meet your best buddies for some lunch and libations. Happy Hour starts at 4pm and ends just in time for DJ “Jammin” Jimmy Buffkin to get you warmed up for The Craig Woolard Band also affectionately known as CWB. They get cranked up at 9pm. We are dedicating tonite to one of CWB’s cast of characters, Jeppy White, who has been battling Pancreatic Cancer. He is doing well but has some chemo to get through. If you would like to help him and his wonderful wife Susan with their considerable amount of growing bills you can make a check out to Jeppy White and give it to Craig or Debbie and they will see to it that it gets to Jeppy and Susan. 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. It don’t get no better than partying in The Fat Man’s House. “I’ve Got a Feeling That We’ll Be Seeing Each Other Again! 😉 Now it’s time to say goodbye to my rainy swamp and hit the road to the roaring waves. See you when you get here. Love YOU, Mean IT!

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!

HOT TODDYI was going to say there is a chill in the air but, it’s plum COLD out there. I even saw a trace of snow in the swamp this morning. Freaked me out, as always, so I took a couple of pictures so everyone wouldn’t think I was telling one of my tales. Don’t let the cold weather stop you from coming to the Fat Man’s House sometime today or tonite. Jackie opens the grill at 11am. She surely has something that will warm you up. This is Happy Day so come on down and grab a Hot Toddy to warm those bones and get them loose so you can dance the night away. It’s customer appreciation so come and be appreciated. DJ “Jammin” Jimmy Buffkin is in the both tonite. He will work up a sweat, that’s for sure. New Years Packages are ready to go. Get yours today. Just ask your bartender, check it out on the website, or Facebook or call Lulu at 843-249-5779! We think you will be very happy with this years package. We are not going to force you to come a week ahead of time and we know how tight money is right now. So we whittled our package down and cut the price in half for YOU! You, our customers are the ones who keep us in business and we wish we could give everything away but then we wouldn’t be in business would we? So we really gave this some thought and came up with the perfect solution. We hope you will join us as we bring in 2014! Got to put on the gloves and hat and hit the road! Love YOU, Mean IT!
