Shanestock 10 is coming!!

April 27th, 2017

We will be celebrating Shanestock 10 on June 10th!  The lineup has just been announced and (as usual) it does not disappoint!  Shanestock is an annual music festival that we put together in honor of our very best friend Shane Keppley. After passing away in a tragic accident in 2009, we have dedicated countless hours to a cause we feel is worthy of Shane and his constant impact on our lives. As the lead guitar of 165 1/2, Shane was not only a beloved friend and extremely talented musician, but more of a family member to all of us and every one he encountered. So it is in his honor that we have officially started The Shane Keppley Foundation. Each year we raise money with our events to contribute to local causes around the area in memory of our lost friend. Peaking at over 750 people in attendance, Shanestock has become the largest event at Fish Head Cantina, raising over $30,000 in donation money since it’s first year. We will have both stages hosting multiple live bands from 1pm to 1am.  The outdoor bar will featuring a 16oz Bud light special as well as all your favorite craft beers and cocktails.  Tickets go on sale this week, $15 in advance $20 day of.

Who’s still sticking to their New Years Resolutions?

February 2nd, 2017

January 16th is listed as National Ditch your New Years Resolution day.  Statics say that by the end of January, more than a third of the Resolution making population will break their resolutions and by July more than half will have lapsed.  So why make them at all?  Well, according to our nifty statistics, even if you make and break your New Years Resolution, you’re much more likely to make improvements than someone that did not make a formal declaration. We here at Fish Head Cantina think moderation is the key and if you slip once and a while, just get back on the horse and give it another shot!  If your resolution was regarding food and drink, maybe a diet cheat day once a week is okay?  If it’s going to the gym more, maybe skipping a day here and there is okay?  If you wanted to be more successful, maybe make one of your meetings a happy hour meeting?  For those of you that are still on the wagon, great job and for those who fell off already, great try!!!  There’s still 11 months before you have to declare again, so get ready!!!

How to choose the best happy hour spot

January 26th, 2017

Happy Hour is a very important custom in our culture.  People conduct business, network, catch up with old friends, commiserate with coworkers or just blow off steam during happy hour.  So how do you choose where you want to spend your much deserved free time and your hard earned money?  First, location is key.  How is the parking and how far do you have to walk from your parking spot to get there?  Anyone who’s been downtown during happy hour knows this can make or break your night.  Secondly, what kind of a crowd are you looking for?  Are you looking for a nice quiet place you can sit and relax or do you want a rowdy bar with pool tables or live music?  Next is the most important, happy hour specials!  Everyone wants a good deal and plenty of bars will give you great prices on drinks and food!  Check the bars website and or Facebook for their daily deals.  Lastly, you want to be appreciated with great staff that is friendly, attentive and happy to make your night.  Nothing is worse than having a server who obviously doesn’t want to be there.  If you follow these happy hour tips, you are guaranteed to have a great night and hopefully wake up the next day a little more relaxed and ready to do it all again!!!

Why we love live music

January 19th, 2017

It’s no secret, Fish Head Cantina Loves live music!  We love rock, hairbands, punk,  metal, you name it  The love for music starts with our fearless leader who grew up playing music and was in multiple bands in his day.  Follow that up with a staff of unique individuals who all love all styles music.  You add sound guys that have been in the music industry for the majority of their lives and you get half of the equation.  The other half is, of course, YOU!!  We love when people come to see bands in our rock club and leave with hoarse voices from singing and yelling.  When they post pictures of them with band members who they may see all the time or may have been waiting years to meet.  When we announce a new band and people get excited it gets us excited!!!  We look forward to rocking out with all of you soon!!!!!
