Let us all have a safe and wonderful Holiday Weekend! Don’t forget, HOTO’s, Last day in history, Monday, Sept 7. Who’s playing??? Jim Quick, King Tyrone, Coastline!!! This will be a weekend for the books! Please say a little prayer for all of our friends working at Hoto’s, that they will find another job. It will never be the same family but God will provide!

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!

We have lost some more of our Fat Harold family. Henrietta Platt Pender, a fixture at the door at Fat Harold’s since he ventured in to the Beach Music scene, passed away last night. We are all in shock and devastated at the loss of such a great friend. Her shoes will never be filled and our hearts will never be the same. Visitation for Henrietta Platt Pender will be Friday the 15th of October, at 2pm, at Trinity Methodist Church, 706 14th Ave, North Myrtle Beach, SC. Services will be @ 3pm following visitation. SO Rest in Peace our Dear Friend. We will miss you……..
