Comedy Night at Deer Park

​Deer Park Irish Pub will open its doors to a night of comedy Friday, June 24, at 8 p.m. 

Supplying the laughs will be Bryan McCree as seen on Mad TV, Comedy Central, and Comics Unleashed. The nationally known comedian will astound you with his astute observations on life that are edgy and hilarious. He must be doing something right as he has shared the stage with the likes of Sinbad, George Wallace, and the Isley Brothers

The best part about the show is its free to attend. But of course, bring some dough for the great selection of beverages Deer Park has to offer, as well as Jacks Rolling Food Shack, who will also be on hand serving up sandwiches, pizzas, and tacos.

Middle Waves Festival a Success  

​Another Middle Waves has come and gone. 

After a three-year hiatus, concertgoers returned for two days of live music, food trucks, vendors, and art. 

What always sets Middle Waves apart from other local festivals is how they utilize the grounds they are on, with this year at the Foellinger Theatre campus. Things never felt too cramped. There were plenty of food options, the ability to kick back on an inflatable raft in the grass while taking in the vibes, plenty of area to mingle with friends and family, no fighting or paying for parking, treated like kings in the VVIP area, and some of the best local/national music out there. Every performer I saw while there was top-notch. 

Hats off to the MW organizers, already looking forward to next year!
