Sunday Funday has taken on a whole new meaning thanks to Beat Kitchen. Yes, the popular concert venue and restaurant is hosting one of the hottest events this school year: family concerts. I am proud to be one of the sponsors for the Concerts for Kids series. Want to get your dance on this weekend? Here’s what you need to know.
The Concerts for Kids series runs every Sunday morning. Yes, that’s right, EVERY Sunday (except for holidays). The shows start at high noon and feature awesome entertainers like Jeanie B, Little Miss Ann Band, Mr. Singer and the Sharp Cookies, Miss Jamie From the Farm and more!
Concerts start at high noon, but it is best to arrive early to grab a great spot and order some lunch. Doors open at 11; plan to arrive by 11:20 to get the best seats in the house. Oh, and don’t worry if you are late. You can also grab a table in the front room (and enjoy the Bears game on TV—woo hoo!).
Put on your dancing shoes. Yep, that’s right, I’m talking to you, PARENTS. If your kids are anything like mine, they love when Mom and Dad get super silly. So be prepared to dance and make a fool of yourself bogeying down and busting out your old school dance moves. The entertainers are all so great that it will be impossible to resist the dance floor—trust me.
Come hungry (and thirsty). Typically when we head to a venue similar to Beat Kitchen, we expect plain old bar food. But let me tell you—that is NOT what you get at Beat Kitchen. Oh no. Instead, you get some delicious and creative dishes that will win over even the pickiest eater. It is nearly impossible to not find something wonderful on the menu.
Take advantage of the special “extras.” During the first concert of the year, there was an amazingly talented face painter who got my shy little guy to get not one but two tattoos. Psst…if you are looking for a great face painter, I highly recommend Unicoi Art Studio. I mean, check out their great work.
