Outdoor concert series are becoming a sign of summer in these parts with live music and laughter ringing through the warm night air in night spots all over town.
They’ve returned this year to the cobblestone streets of Westport Village where extended hours for the locally-owned shops and lazy dinners on the patio at Artesano or Nappa River Valley can turn one languid evening into a much-needed mini vacay. This month’s concert is set for Friday, July 21, featuring local band the Hot Brown Smackdown, “a bluegrass fueled, funk-steered, rock-influenced semi-acoustic party.” Westport Whiskey & Wine’s drink tent will open at 6pm with Jeptha Creed cocktails, Ballotin Whiskey slushies and a featured brewery. The music starts at 7:00 p.m., but the party starts at 5:00 when the racks roll out for the sidewalk sales and Norton Bike to Beat Cancer arrives to sign up family bikers for more family fun. See you there.
