Friday Night is Family Night

If you are sitting around your home with nothing to do with a flock of kids by your side this Friday night, then I have good news for you!

This Friday is Family Night at Ames on the Half Shell and there are plenty of activities for children.

In fact, I’ll just give you a list:

  • Free cup and unlimited refills of Red Monkey root beer. (Red Monkey is caffeine free)
  • 1 ticket for every child to the duck pond. At the duck pond child will receive a prize.
  • Face Painting
  • Temporary tattoos
  • Bubbles
  • Coloring table
  • Balloon lady (My understanding is that this is the balloon lady to end all balloon ladies.)
  • Bounce house
  • Spin Art (Costs a buck I do believe and worth every last one of those pennies.)
  • Pizza (from Happy Joe’s I do believe.)
  • Sno-Cones (This has yet to be confirmed, but this will be a fundraiser for Access.)

Of course there are also adult activities.

  • Rocking the stage will be Murphy’s Law
  • Pizza (from Happy Joe’s I do believe.)
  • Spin Art (Costs a buck I do believe and worth every last one of those pennies.)
  • Beer (Including two microbrews from Olde Main and a chick drink known as a Mojito*)
  • Red Monkey (This is the best root beer ever.) There are other sodas available, but why would you want them when you have Red Monkey on tap?

The event kicks off at 5 PM and lasts until 8 PM. It is in the Bandshell Park near downtown Ames. This is followed by an After-Hours Party at London Underground.

Admission is 3 bucks and children under the age of 10 get in free.

I will see you there.

*When I was serving beer last week more men than I would have guessed ordered Mojitos. I don’t think that they were all ordering them for their girlfriends or ladies they were trying to impress.
