* Tastemakers at Mizner Park presents “Rock, Roll & Stroll.
Way back on August 4, 2014 Jeff Eats told you guys about- Tastemakers at Mizner Park presents “Rock, Roll & Stroll scheduled for Wednesady- September 17, 2014 from 6pm-9:30pm. The original story is reprinted below.
So…let’s treat this morning’s “story” as a friendly reminder-just in case you’d like to “go” but haven’t yet caught tickets-that tickets are still available.
Jeff Eats did some checking-and I’m hearing that a huge crowd is gonna be doing this “thing”. Based on location, restaurants, vendors, bands involved (assuming the weather cooperates) “Rock, Roll & Stroll” should be a terrific night out.
Finally- in case it matters to anyone…
Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats are going to take time-out from our busy social calendar- and “record” America’s Got Talent’s finale-so we’ll see you guys at Mizner Park!
