Get Ready for Fall Harbor Hop 2018 at the Lake of the Ozarks!

Autumn isn't too late to get out on that gorgeous lake! If you need a little extra incentive to convince yourself to get back on the water before it gets too cold, then the 33rd Annual Fall Harbor Hop should do the trick! One of the best annual events at the Lake of the Ozarks is happening on Saturday, October 13, 2018, and Shorty Pants Lounge & Marina is getting your cards, delicious Cajun dishes, refreshing drinks, and great live music all ready for the big day. 

Harbor Hop at Shorty Pants Lounge
You can make your stop at the best waterfront bar & restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks anytime between 11 am-7 pm for cards, but we'll be open after that for dinner and drinks, so plan to stick around. If it's nice outside, we've got plenty of lakeside seating with a gorgeous view. If, on the other hand, it's a bit chilly that day you can hang out by our cozy outdoor fireplace or join us in the indoor dining area. 

As for entertainment, we've got you covered. The talented Steven Moore will be onstage from 3-7 pm, so time your stop at Shorty Pants accordingly so you don't miss the show!
