We are happy to report that this Saturday, August 3, The Cow Ponies are headin’ for beautiful downtown Waukesha, just down Barstow from the beautiful Carroll University, where Robin teaches, to perform at Nice Ash Cigar Bar. It’s a grand old space with the largest humidor we’ve ever seen, and a gorgeous old wood bar that wraps all the way around. At 323 West Main Street, just down the street from Antiques & Uniques and Allô Chocolat!, which at least two of us consider lil’ slices-a heaven here on Earth.
Show begins at 9 p.m. and continues right up until midnight with two tiny breaks here and there. Waxing crescent moon. Hookah. Plenty of cozy places to sit and chat with friends, miles of room to dance. Whiskey. Beer. Wine. Cocktails. Specials.
Please join us, y’all! It’ll be a fun night! Thanks to Joette and Jeff for havin’ us.
