Summer Friday Nite Unwinds
Shank’s Mare’s front porch sets the stage for our summer music series. Grab some friends, kids, dogs, chairs, blankets & coolers and gather on the river for some live local music. For each concert, Shank’s Mare’s Lock 2 Café will feature dinner specials as well as our regular menu, snacks, beverages and ice cream. Come by boat, kayak or car, and enjoy some great tunes as you watch the river flow by. BYOB welcome. No reservations required for live music; only for the Unwind Paddle Tour. There is no cover charge for our live music, but we do encourage you to visit the Lock 2 Cafe for food, beverages and ice cream. These evenings of free live music from talented local musicians are made possible by your patronage of the Lock 2 Cafe, and we hope to continue to do so. In addition, a tip to the band is always appreciated.
