Unless you’re living in a well-air-conditioned bunker these days (which, with this humidity, isn’t such a bad idea), you’re likely aware by now of the fact that the USGA U.S. Women’s Open golf tournament is taking over Lancaster for the week. Appropriately, businesses of all kinds are running golf-oriented promotions this week. For others, it’s just business as usual, albeit with a few extra bodies out and about.
Either way, we’re happy to report that a good number of activities await after spending your day on the course, from craft beer to live music and more. Whether you’re visiting town for the U.S. Women’s Open this week at Lancaster Country Club or a local looking for a new dining or drinking spot, you’ll want to check out the special pull-out insert from the middle of this month’s magazine for a look at what to do at night after a long day on the course.
Tuesday – Craft Beer Infusions
The Taproom by Spring House Brewing Company (25 W. King St.) breaks out its Randall the Enamel Animal beer infuser and runs its beers through different ingredients every Tuesday night. See what unique flavor combinations they’ve come up with.
Wednesday – Trivia Night
Show off your trivia skills during 20 Questions Trivia with Bill Plantholt at Marion Court Room (7 Marion Ct.) and stick around and hang out at the outdoor bar. And don’t worry about the weather forecast; Marion Court’s nifty new roof will keep ya dry.
Thursday – Rock Out
The Chameleon Club (223 N. Water St.) is downtown Lancaster’s O.G. concert venue. Bang your head with rock juggernauts Hinder when they take the stage (about the polar opposite of the whole “quiet on the tee” thing on the course). Doors open at 7 p.m. and tickets are $20-22.
Friday – Back to the ’60s
Get psychedelic at Tellus360 (24 E. King St.) with Ride the Snake: The Music of the Doors performed by an all-star cast of local musicians. Then, why not hit the rooftop bar for an al fresco nightcap (perhaps a glass of whiskey from Tellus360’s impressive selection of whiskeys, Scotches and bourbons).
Saturday – Live on Vine
The inaugural Live on Vine block party takes place on the first block of West Vine Street and features live music by country star Sara Evans as well as performances by Jana Kramer, Maggie Rose and more. The party includes cash bars and food trucks and goes from 5:30-11 p.m. Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the gates.
Sunday – Gypsy Jazz
Relax at The Pressroom (26-28 W. King St.) with the gyspy jazz sounds of Rue de la Pompe or grab a drink at the restaurant’s newly opened Park Bar in Steinman Park.
Sunday – Bar Crawl
Lancaster-based events promoted Barrel O’ Monkeys Productions – known for the annual Bad Prom bar crawl – will unleash a new charity crawl on Lancaster City’s Plum Street corridor. The Keep It Classy ‘Murica Bar Crawl tees off at 1 p.m. at American Bar & Grill (1081 N. Plum St.) and invites participants to don their classiest golf outfit (time to dust off those skorts, ladies) as you make your way from bar to bar.
