If you're as excited about Labor Day Weekend at the Lake of the Ozarks as we are here at Shorty Pants Lounge & Marina, then you'll agree that it can't get here fast enough! (Sure, it's a couple of days away, but still, we can't wait!)
Beyond the holiday weekend, there's another huge annual event coming up in September too, plus fall is a gorgeous time to explore the lake area. Here's a look at some of what's going on around our Lake of the Ozarks waterfront bar & grill this month.
Labor Day Weekend 2020
Shorty Pants has everything you need for the holiday weekend to keep you well-fed, thoroughly entertained, and if you're traveling by boat, stocked up for a full day on the water! We've got some of the best live music at the Lake of the Ozarks lined up for you over Labor Day Weekend on both Friday and Saturday nights beginning at 7:00 pm.
Dave Dunklee & the Healing Box Project
Friday, Sept. 4
Saturday, Sept. 5
As for the rest of the weekend, we open daily at 11:00 am to serve up the best Cajun food at the Lake of the Ozarks. One bite and you'll think you're in New Orleans rather than in mid-Missouri! From creamy Crawfish & Shrimp Etouffee to savory Jambalaya to great big Po Boy Sandwiches, we've got a delicious variety of Creole favorites on the menu.
Of course, we've got plenty of non-Cajun dishes too, in case someone at your table is in the mood for something different. Lastly, to wash it all down, our fully stocked bars are ready to serve you an ice-cold beer, a wonderful variety of wines, and a long list of specialty cocktails that will tickle your taste buds including a creative selection of Hurricanes.
You can easily access Shorty Pants Lounge by land in Osage Beach but if you happen to be traveling on the water over the weekend, then you'll want to make a pit stop at Shorty Pants Marina at the 12-mile marker while you're here. In addition to being the best gas dock at the Lake of the Ozarks, Shorty Pants Marina also features a fully-stocked convenience store.
Here you can stock up on everything you'll need for a fun day out on the water. It also houses the cleanest restrooms on the lake and you can even pick up some cool Shorty Pants "swag" while you're there. For anyone needing a place to park their watercraft over the holiday, we've got slips for rent from sizes 14'x36' up to 20'x56'. Call us at 573-302-1004 to check availability.
September 16-20: Bikefest
Also coming up in September is the 14th Annual Bikefest Lake of the Ozarks. We're thrilled to be one of the passport stops again this year, so make sure you ride by and get your book stamped by us. In addition to the passport run, this event is filled with live music, awesome giveaways, and even the chance to win a brand new Harley-Davidson motorcycle!
As a matter of fact, you can head on over to LakeBikefest.com right now and sign up to win a 2-night Lake of the Ozarks Bikefest Package valued at over $700. Among other awesome prizes, this includes a $50 gift certificate to use at Shorty Pants!
Autumn "falls" on September 22, 2020, but even though summer will be over the 2020 season at Shorty Pants Lounge & Marina is far from over! As the leaves begin changing, the lake area takes on a completely different type of beauty that needs to be experienced.
If you happen to need a place to stay while you're in town, check out two of the best waterfront vacation rental houses at the Lake of the Ozarks. The Red House & the Glass House happen to be located right next door to Shorty Pants Lounge & Marina. You can learn all about them and check availability on our website. (Last time we looked, there are lots of great dates open this fall!)
We're looking forward to celebrating the Labor Day holiday with as many of you as possible this weekend. After that, keep coming back! Like we said earlier, our 2020 season is far from over!
