Looking for Winter Fun at the Lake of the Ozarks? Here It Is!

We're all looking forward to March because it happens to contain opening day for your favorite waterfront bar & restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks, but you don't have to wait that long to have a good time around here. Shorty Pants Lounge & Marina's sister restaurants have some awesome events coming up that we know you are going to love! 

First, this January, there is an evening for whiskey-lovers and food lovers alike. Then in February, it's time for the Lake of the Ozarks Mardi Gras Pub Crawl plus an out-of-this-world pre-party that you do not want to miss!  

Whiskey Dinner at Wobbly Boots
This event may be geared toward whiskey-lovers, but the gourmet creations that chef Kevin McCowan comes up with will make even the most finicky foodie very, very happy! Wobbly Boots Roadhouse will be hosting this 5-course whiskey pairing dinner on Monday, January 28, 2019, at 6:30 pm in their private room next to the fireplace. 

Savory whiskey cocktails and tastings from the Jim Beam family will be featured this month. Seating is limited, so you'll want to head on over to the Boot ASAP to pick up tickets or call 573-348-2277 to reserve them. Wobbly Boots BBQ has been recognized as one of the Great Bourbon Bars of America, and these dinners helped them to earn that title.     

Pre-Pub Crawl Party at Dog Days
The night before the biggest party at the Lake of the Ozarks, Dog Days Bar & Grill will open for another off-season, one-night-only event featuring amazing live music and incredible drinks. It's the perfect warm-up before you head out on Saturday to the Lake Pub Crawl.

Doors open at 7:00 pm on Friday, February 15, 2019, for a fantastic dance party at the Dog. In case you were unaware, they have an incredible indoor stage that works perfectly for hosting a winter party. 

There will be a double-feature of amazing music in store for you beginning at 8:00 pm with both The Plastics and The Mixtapes. Tickets will be $15 at the door on show night, but you can pick up tickets in advance for only $10 each at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse. 

The Mardi Gras Pub Crawl
If you like to party at the lake, then you've undoubtedly heard about this very popular annual event at the Lake of the Ozarks. It's the one night mid-winter that the lake area is nearly as crowded as it is mid-summer! 

The Lake of the Ozarks Mardi Gras Pub Crawl is happening on Saturday, February 16, 2019. This year there are 16 stops, each featuring their own live music, and over 30 buses offering a safe, sober ride to all pub crawlers from 4:00 pm-2:30 am. A single $10 wristband allows you to join in the fun all night long! Our favorite stop is always Wobbly Boots Roadhouse, but as long as you're with fun friends and ready for a night of revelry, you're going to have fun at each stop!
