It’s Tuesday and time for some Shag Lessons. They start promptly at 7pm. The Customer Appreciation Christmas Party is tomorrow night. Don’t forget to bring toys for Yachts for Tots or some food and supplies for our four legged friends. You may have a red ticket but you also need to bring something to go in the boxes and please unopened dog food! It’s the festive season and everyone wants to party but please think about the less fortunate and open your hearts to those who have NOTHING! The boxes are located at the front door and we hope to fill them like always. They are SOOOOOO appreciated! Now on a light note, if you have something for me just give it to one of the bartenders and they will make sure it gets on my desk. ho, Ho, HO! You can take a joke can’t you? There will be some light finger foods and when it’s gone, it’s gone. So if you come in late and the food is gone well we’ll just say, The early bird catches the chips and the late bird gets the crumbs! Thursday nite we have a private party in the back room so there will be no cornhole and Jeanette will still be teaching her line dance lessons in the front room. DJ’s will start at 7pm daily.I will post the weekend activities later in the week. Have a good one and we hope to see you at the Fat Man’s sometime this week. Jackie opens for lunch Wed. thru Sat. at 11am. SOS cards for 2014 are here and they make great Christmas presents for those who have everything. Come get yours today. We are still taking applications for the New Years Package. Getting down to the nitty gritty. Get yours now! Signing out from the swamp with no sunshine. Love You, Mean It!
Have 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!
