There are dancers at Wilebski's every Tuesday, but no Tuesday more than First Tuesday. Wanted to check out Wilebski's Blues Saloon, but been afraid you'll pick the wrong night? First Tuesdays are the answer.

The jam is free, the floor is big, and the music is loud. (No, really, maybe bring earplugs?) Buy a drink, shake it out, and let's do this!

*The floor is concrete, so choose your shoes appropriately.

Join us! Discounted registration will open in early May.
