We stopped in for drinks, and to catch some of the live music, and had a fun waiter (“Hollywood” haha) who gave us some good advice on how to enjoy our time here!

Walked in after shopping at the market across the street. I don’t remember the name of the band but they were good. Female singer. We ordered fries with a gravy mixture and brisket sliders. We enjoyed it.

We wanted to find an authentic live music show that our musical musician teenagers could attend. BB King did not disappoint. The food was good/okay but the music was great and my family enjoyed this so much!!

Stopped in after visiting the market outside. Great place for music and food. Little pricey but worth it.

A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
