As I was driving around town today, I noticed the signs out for the Summer Concert Series. I guess it really is summer time. I don't know if it's the same way near you, but here, we have a good many different shopping areas. They all seem to feature at least one box store like a Target, a grocery store, a fast food restaurant like a McDonalds, Wendy's or Chic-fil-a, at least one spa or nail place, a cleaners and several clothing or shoe stores. Then there are the sit down restaurants - either a chain like Chili's or the smaller ones that are unique to your area. And if you are lucky, at least one of them has an outside area that you can sit and enjoy the cool weather at night during the spring or early fall.
With each of these different shopping areas, tends to be the trend of a Friday/Saturday night concert series. What better idea than to grab a beer and listen to some music after a hard days' work or a day at the pool/round of golf on the weekends. Not only does it give you a way to listen to great music and meet new friends but it is a great marketing tool for the area stores and restaurants. The ones that you are sure to stroll through as you are listening to music.
So, this Friday/Saturday, enjoy the early days of summer with a cold beer or glass of wine and listen to some nice tunes!
