Homecoming at KU is this weekend, and you know what that means- The Sandbar will be packed all weekend. Last year we entertained the fine fans from Nebraska; this year we'll see if the fans from Texas Tech are as gracious and fun.

Join us on Friday night for the Bar Band extravaganza that takes place the night before every home football game. They usually appear around 9:30 and play all the favorite KU songs, and every once in awhile they'll throw in a Sandbar tune like "Margaritaville."

On Saturday, head over to The Sandbar after the early game and enjoy the rest of the afternoon downtown. Let's hope it's a nice day that allows us to open the windows and enjoy a cool breeze.

It's great fun every year at Homecoming to see all of our old regulars who may only get back to Lawrence once or twice a year. If you have any great pictures of The Sandbar from Homecoming weekends in years past, email them to us or upload them to our Flickr group. And if you take any this year be sure to send those too!
