The Masked Ramblers
Old-Time Happy Hour at the South Shore Brewery Washburn Taphouse
Tuesday, April 13, 2021
4:00 pm to 7:00 pm
Something is going down this Tuesday April 13 from 4pm to 7pm at the Washburn Taphouse of the Southshore Brewery. It’s time for another Old-Time Happy Hour with... The Masked Ramblers?
We’re not sure who these folks are (they wear masks for goodness sake!), but we do know that the Southshore Brewery is going to provide space and refreshment, the Masked Ramblers will create an old-time atmosphere, and you’re going to enjoy a chance to get out in an uncrowded and safe environment at the Washburn Taphouse.
Stop by for a great brew or two and an old-time tune or three from 4pm to 7pm this Tuesday April 13. Bring take out from local establishments or carry in your eats because food pairs well with beer. The Washburn Taphouse carries ten choices of flagship, specialty, and seasonal beers, plus ever so often an experimental beverage. You can get South Shore beers as flights, pints, growler fills, and our newest addition, "Cans 2 Go". Well-behaved dogs can also join you here, both outdoors in our grassy area and indoors on a leash. It’s all at 532 W Bayfield St in Washburn WI.

The TrueGrass Trio has been added to the 2021 Milaca RecFest lineup! This is Milaca's annual bluegrass festival held in Milaca's historical recreational park (2nd St NW at 4th Ave NW Milaca, MN 56353). It’s a four day event this year (July 22-25, 2021) that features some of the region's most noted bluegrass bands and musicians with stage shows, workshops, music jam sessions, crafters, plus food and beverage vendors. Tom, Jed, and Bruce will be on stage Saturday afternoon (and doing a couple workshops too), but we’ll likely be in the campground all weekend picking with all our friends in Minnesota. Bring your lawn chair (and "Jammers" bring your instruments) and join some of the finest people you'll meet anywhere for a weekend of bluegrass music and fun! Check it out at www.milacarecfest.com.
