Surf's Still Up
A few years back, when Chick Hall's Surf Club went on the chopping block to be sold, its demise seemed imminent. There was a series of farewell events, and lots of rumors flying. No one wanted to see it go. Happily as it turns out, neither did the new owners. James Byrum and his father decided to try and keep this place a music venue which was truly an act of of courage. They eventually had to cut back on bands every weekend to keep the ship afloat, but live music and dances are back- on Thursday nights and have already included events from the DC Blues Society to the Nighthawks.
Rose Ledet's show was cancelled this week, but keep an eye on the schedule. There's plenty of room on the dance floor, and it's a great place to see music.
Have fun and help keep a honky tonk alive.
