Get rodeo ready, cowboy season's coming!

Spring is coming next weekend! The animals will be waking up, you should come out of hibernation too. First things first, peruse and brush up on your dance steps, of course!

Atlantic City Rodeo
Atlantic City Rodeo

Rodeo &  Beer Festival coming to Atlantic City on the same weekend!
Now THAT sounds like a fun weekend! April 1 - 3, Atlantic City will be full of cowboys & beer. Suds & Studs & Spurs... ooh la la!
Rodeo tix start @ $16. You're darn right I'll be in town that weekend, actin' like a FOOL!

The first weekend in April, what kind of fool will you be?

Bally's Wild Wild West Casino - Oh how we would love to see them get some good line dancing events going! Hopefully the Atlantic City rodeo will kick up a little inspiration for their promotions department. All they need is a wooden dance floor and a decent DJ who is familiar with line dancing... someone to get the word out and viola.

Friendly Tavern reopened last summer.  It's an old favorite dancin' destination for many. Some yelp-ers said,
"Great country music with plenty of dancing.  Live bands are a plus.  So glad to have country dancing close again.  Great, diverse crowd with music for old and young alike."
 "Saturday we found this new spot about an hour's drive from NE Philly. Located in Carneys Point NJ, the newly reopened under new management, Friendly Tavern sure lives up to its name is worth the trip"
 "The lights are dim, Beer is cold, and the Music is Loud! Line dancing was the Deal! The crowd aged from Mid-30's to 70 years old. I'm Sure this place is going to be a Hit! "

djharry2189 has a few videos from Friendly's. The Friendly Tavern has its perks and its drawbacks but a must-try for post-rodeo rowdiness. Which leads me to...

Cowtown Rodeo - Every Saturday Night 7:30 PM
May 28, 2011 - Sept. 24, 2011

Dig out your kickers 'n wranglers, order a new white dress (so excited they're in this season), and plan some nights out! Do it up like us gals did in "Line Dancing, Concert Tix, The Rodeo Song (sans the music, poetry, art, singing, rhythm, humor and sound) ", grab a grill & some beverages (Cowtown Rodeo lets you bring in a cooler), and assign your designated driver (it's a long walk)... party it up rowdy rodeo style!

The One

The One, one of my all time favorite Gary Allan songs. Here's a cell phone video I snagged of Gary Allan performing 'The One' back in October of 2010 at World Cafe Live in Philadelphia. Look close for Lucy, Gary's doodle on stage.

I am posting it in honor of  Gary Allan coming to Atlantic City this weekend (3/5/2011) and my best friend's engagement last weekend.
