Live music will be returning to the patio at Jose’s Southwest Grille in Springdale, pictured above, on April 1. Other venues with patios will follow suit in the coming weeks. File photo.
Today (March 20), being the first day of a spring and one of those days where it’s too nice to be indoors, sounds like as good a time as any to talk about outdoor live music.
Many local venues will soon be opening their patios for open-air music. Here are the ones we know of so far:
Herman’s Ribhouse, Fayetteville â Opens in early May, performers to be announced
One that won’t be opening is Neumeier’s Rib Room and Beer Garden in Fort Smith. A renovation/construction project there won’t be completed in time for 2008, but live music will return in 2009, owner Bill Neumeier said.
This is an incomplete list, for certain, but it looks like a good start. Here’s to hoping for live music and nice weather every day.
