Natural Beauty at The Ridge:  “Fire On The Mountain”

I am going to ask you a few questions. You will answer “yes” to every one. Do you like a beautiful setting for your musical experience? Do you enjoy listening to talented local musicians? Do you like bacon? Oh good, you pass the test! You certainly would enjoy any musical event at The Ridge, located at 1281 Salt Springs Road

A recent Tuesday featured three local bands covering the music of The Grateful Dead. In fact, The Ridge features “tribute nights” on roughly every-other Tuesday.

Pearly Baker’s Best:
