Just in, from the Shameless Commerce Division of Village Green/Town Squared:
"This Saturday, 9/29, from 12 pm to 2 pm, The Second Chance Saloon in Oakland Mills brings you "A Little Lunch Music." Come enjoy lunch while Early Childhood Music Specialist Julia McCready plays DJ with your favorite Kids Tunes. Room to move and groove, and hands-on materials to explore! All children attending will receive a prize with their meals." Yes, they have a Kid's Menu!
If you are the parent of a young child, you know what a challenge eating out with your kids can be. This event is for you. We have the entire dining room, plus we often spill over into the pool room as well. Everyone is friendly to everyone else; the wait staff is genuinely happy that you brought your children. The music is chosen with the young ones in mind. And best of all, they can get up, wander up to the stage and dance, sing, and play rhythm instruments.
Now, this particular Saturday is jam-packed with things to do in our area: the Fall Festival in Ellicott City, Brian Donoughe's Help-A-Child Fundraiser Happy Hour, and Ian Kennedy's band Pineflood will be appearing at Sonoma's in the evening. Let me suggest that you start the day off right with a laid-back lunch and an experience designed purely for your children's enjoyment.
Oh, and if you like to plan ahead--my family and I will be giving free wagon rides at the Oakland Mills Cultural Arts Festival from 11 am to 1 pm on Saturday, October 6th.
