Girls Night Downtown

Ladies, get your wallets ready!

The popular annual Downtown Lawrence shopping event, Girls Night Downtown, returns on Thursday, Oct. 16.

This year’s shopping bash benefits the Willow Domestic Violence Center, and the ladies of Lawrence (and beyond) are invited downtown to “shop in her shoes.”

How’s it work?

Buy a ticket for $20, or $10 with a student ID. You can buy tickets in advance online or at the Downtown Lawrence, Inc., office or the third floor of Weaver’s. Or, buy your tickets the night of the event at one of two tables: 9th and Mass or 7th and Mass. If you buy tickets in advance, you’ll need to check in at one of the tables the night of the event to get your shopping bag and program.

There’s a list of participating businesses on the DLI website. For the most part, shoppers will get 20% off their purchase in participating stores, with some exclusions.

Bars and restaurants get to enjoy the fun, too!

Sandbar is participating in the event again this year. Thursday night is already home to our best special of the week, Tropical Thursdays, where customers can buy a pint glass for $2.50 (or bring in a pint glass from a previous visit!) and get tropical drinks for $2.50 all night. Tropical drinks are regularly priced at $4.50, so this is a pretty good deal.

So, what does your Girls Night Downtown ticket get you on this particular night? Well, ticketholders will get a FREE pint glass (be sure to let the bartender know you’re a ticket holder; show your shopping bag or program) and enjoy $2.50 tropical drinks, along with our exclusive $1 “Red Shoes” shots.

And, every participating business is also donating a gift certificate and other prizes. Several lucky shoppers will win some awesome prize packages!

What are you waiting for?! Buy your tickets today, and get downtown on Oct. 16 to shop in our beautiful downtown for a great cause!


New Sandbar Drink Specials

We like to mix things up every once in awhile, so we're introducing some new specials- and we think you'll love them.

Dave wanted to emphasize even more the drinks the Sandbar is known for- the Shark Attack and the Dirty Banana shot. So, join us on Wednesday nights for the "best of the Sandbar" and enjoy $3 Shark Attacks and $1 Dirty Bananas. It's almost better than being at the beach!

Can beer has been making a comeback, so Sunday nights are Can Night now. Stop in for $2 cans before the work week starts again. We'll have a random selection of cans for you- right now it's Bud Light, Miller Light, Corona and Tecate- but it'll change depending on what Dave decides to stock.

The rest of the nights are pretty much the same:

One other thing- we're dropping Buzztime trivia sometime in the next month, so if you're a trivia addict, get in and play it now.
