National reggae artist performing tonight, new tiki bar opening

I'm still recuperating from an outing with the Charlotte Bourbon Club at the Maker's Mark dinner at DB's Tavern on Ardrey Kell Road last night. Morning yoga at Lenny Boy Brewing helped along with a glass of the Icebreaker kombucha. Yoga and kombucha may be my new Saturday morning remedy. Now, I'm ready hit the streets.

Let me start tonight's lineup with a correction. I listed the incorrect day for Bar 316 five-year anniversary celebration. It's tonight.  Enjoy go-go dancers, drag queens and more. 9 p.m. The Bar at Charlotte, 316 Rensselaer Ave.
