New Year’s Eve at the Lodge in Baldwin City

We know, it's not even Christmas yet, but this month is flying by and we wanted to let you know about a New Year's Eve event.

Peach and Ted also own the Lodge in Baldwin City, a fantastic motel and banquet facility. You can ring in the New Year with Frankie Diamond, a singer specializing in Neil Diamond hits and other fun songs from a variety of decades.

You can enjoy the party for just $5. They'll have appetizers and party favors while you dance around the fireplace to all your favorite tunes!

The Lodge is also offering $75 room rates, including breakfast, and special suite rates.

If you haven't been to the Lodge, you really should check it out. It's a warm, inviting place to celebrate any event! Contact the Lodge at 785.594.3900 with any questions or to make room reservations.

RSVP on Facebook.

Happy New Year!

Holiday Spray Tan Party

We've hosted two spray tan parties upstairs on our beach, and lots of people expressed interest in them.

Amelia from Premier Mobile Spray Tan is having a spray tan party with special rates for new customers. The party will be at Amelia's in-home studio just south of Baldwin City.

Here are the details:

  • Wednesday, December 8th from 4-8 p.m.
  • New customers: $15 full body tan
  • Existing customers: $20 full body tan
  • Existing customers who bring a new client: $15 full body tan

Space is limited, so call Amelia at 785.393.9583 to book your session.

The spray tan process only takes about ten minutes, and the tan looks great. I promise, you won't look like Snooki! The tan lasts from 7-14 days. Be sure to read Amelia's prep and after-care instructions to maximize your tan.

Several Sandbar staff and customers have had a spray tan and really liked the results. If you have questions about it, leave a comment and we'll answer it!

(No, Amelia's not paying us to write about this. No one's getting free tans, either. We just really like Amelia and think this is a great service!)

Land Shark Spotted in Baldwin City

Peach brought us a copy of the Baldwin City Signal- it featured a picture of one of our Sandbar friends!

Check out this snow sculpture (and try to ignore the horribly crooked scan):

The caption reads:

Scott Schoenberger had a little time on his hands Friday and plenty of snow to create this snow sculpture of a shark. He even took time to don fishing gear for a picture.

It should come as absolutely no surprise to anyone that we know this guy.

Scott is famous around The Sandbar. He sang lead vocals on our original Hurricane song, a re-worded version of Copa Cabana that we recorded in a local studio. (Does anyone remember that version?) He's also a popular character on many of our St. Patrick's Day Parade floats. Many guys don't like to dance, but not Showtime. He lives up to his name and puts on a show.

Very creative use of the few inches of snow in his yard. Nice job, Showtime!
