Everything is better on the water, which is why we are stoked for the Harborside Restaurant’s Inaugural Block Party Concert. The event will take place on Sunday, May 24, from 2:00 – 10:00 p.m.

If you haven’t made plans for Memorial Day Weekend yet, I can’t think of a good reason why you shouldn't attend this event, but I can think of a few reasons why you should…

1.) It's a NEW Harborside. If you haven’t been to Harborside Restaurant since October, you have not experienced the Harborside that exists today. They reopened the first week of November with a new owner, menu, remodeled kitchen and dining room, and many other improvements. You owe it to yourself to check it out.

2.) Good Food. Harborside’s fresh seafood, steak and oysters are reason enough to come hang out on a lazy Sunday afternoon. Trust me.

3.) Live Music. If you’re one of the many patrons who miss live music at Harborside, then you’re in luck, because not one, but four bands will be performing at the event: Acoustic Dose, Sarah and The Swinging Richards, BlessEd & The Divine Derelicts and Acoustic Army.

4.) Lakefront Property. In case the name didn’t give it away, Harborside sits on the shore of lovely Lake Shipp. This means you get to enjoy the oh so refreshing lake breeze, and view from their screened patio or the event’s additional outdoor seating. It also gives you the option to boat to the party - they've got a dock where you can tether your vessel.

5.) Art Displays. As if the lakefront view wasn't stunning enough, Harborside is ushering in art displays that are sure to pique your interest.

6.)Live Glass Blowing Demonstrations. Have you ever watched a glass blowing demonstration on YouTube? We have. They are downright intriguing, and probably even more so live.

7.) Specials. There’s just something extra special (ahem, tasty) about Harborside’s specials.

8.) Jello Shots. They may not be your “thing,” but just like dark clouds are a good predictor of rain, Jello Shots are a sign of a good time.

9.) No Cover Charge. Always a positive in my book.

Mark your calendars, and come out and experience what is great about Harborside every day, with the addition of a great indoor/outdoor event.
