Three things to do in & around La Crosse this weekend

Gonna be hot ALL FRIGGIN’ weekend! Near 90° on Friday, Saturday & Sunday. I’m doing the Rock Stops on Friday at Jimmy’s North Star from 4-5:35pm with Twisted Tea, and again on Saturday from 1-2:35pm at the Sweet Stop & Sandwich Shoppe in Preston! Find a list of the remaining Rock Stops here.

Hopefully on Sunday, someone with a boat will take pity on my wife & me and take us out on the river.(hint, hint!)

Also thinking about hitting up the Speedway on Saturday night for the “Trailer Race of Destruction” and possibly hitting the Logger game on Sunday at the Lumberyard. There’s only FIVE games left this season!

Don’t forget, Stone Temple Pilots will be at Copeland Park on Saturday, September 17th & you can buy tickets here, or try to win them by clicking here.

If you’re going to be in the area & are looking for something to do, here’s a few suggestions:

TONIGHT!!!!!!!! It’s the 8th Anniversary of River City Championship Wrestling at the Roy L. Vingers American Legion Post 52 in La Crosse!

Intense action from 7-10pm and tickets are SUPER affordable. Prices start at $5 and ringside seats are just $13! Buy your tickets online here for the RCCW 8th Anniversary show.

And don’t forget, they’re bringing the legendary Ric “The Nature Boy” Flair to Champions Riverside Resort in October!!!! More info on that here.

On Saturday, do some day-drinking at 608 Brewing Co. for their 4th Anniversary party! The event actually starts on Wednesday, with special releases, prizes, raffles, & savings every day!

On Saturday, they open at noon and will be releasing three different BA stouts:

Double Barrel Nebulous Void!
BA Nebulous Void: Thai Banana Peanut Butter Cup!
BA Coconuts Rule Everything Around Me!

Find more info on the 608 Brewing Co. 4th Anniversary party here.

On Saturday night, take a quick ride down the MN side to Saxon Hall in Brownsville for some incredible pizza & live music from Crooked Willow. They’ll be playing on the outdoor patio(weather permitting) from 7-10pm.

Grab some wings or Jumbo Saxon tots & then order a pizza(I recommend the Meat Lover)! Ice cold beers and some live tunes from Crooked Willow!

Find more info here.

On #SundayFunday, get to Big Al’s in downtown La Crosse for some great pizza(try the new Cheesy Dippers!), killer drinks, and live tunes from Cheeba!

Cheeba is the pairing of Cheech & Chubba, and they’ll be jamming at Big Al’s from 2-5pm on the outdoor patio(weather permitting)!

Find more info here.
