Adult Swim Block Party

We love a good block party, especially when we don't have to do the work.

Tomorrow night (Monday, April 19), Adult Swim presents a free block party at 8th and New Hampshire. The block in front of the Sandbar will be closed most of the day for setup, and the party starts at 6 p.m. It includes carnival games, prizes, free t-shirts, and other surprises.

The event is geared towards the college-age crowd, but it's free and open to anyone. 

And there's music! Live performances by Motion Potion and The Whigs are sure to entertain the crowd.

No alcohol is allowed in the street, but there are several bars on the block with patios, including us. We aren't extending our patio area to be any larger, but there's plenty of room for a few folks on our patio, and we'll definitely have the windows open.

The event is open to all ages, but you must be 21 to enter the Sandbar.

RSVP on the event's Facebook page, and we'll see you tomorrow night!

An Old Fashioned Christmas Parade

Got plans for Saturday morning? Join us downtown this Saturday, December 5, at the Lawrence Old Fashioned Christmas Parade!

This is the 16th year of the annual event, and The Sandbar is proud to be a sponsor. Our Friday bartender Phil serves as the parade chair, and owner Peach's good friend and neighbor, Elaine VanDeventer, is the parade's executive director.

The parade starts at 11 a.m. in downtown Lawrence and features nearly 100 entrants, all of which are horse-drawn.

Want to get even more involved? There are plenty of additional opportunities available: donate funds large or small, volunteer your time, or even participate in the parade!

This is a great event to take the whole family to- how many towns can claim an entire parade of horse-drawn carriages?  If you take any pictures, email them to us or upload them to the Parade's Facebook page.

Don't forget to stop by The Sandbar after the parade for a refreshing drink!
