The Twisted Tail, a Southern-inspired restaurant, bar and live music venue in Headhouse Square, is launching a virtual social hour with live blues music on Wednesdays from 5 to 7 p.m.
Philadelphia restaurants' dining rooms are currently closed due to COVID-19 restrictions and there's a "stay at home" order in place, so this is an inventive way to connect with Twisted Tail and have some fun in your living room.
Starting Wednesday, March 25, music lovers are invited to tune in to the Twisted Tail's Facebook for a two-hour livestream of blues entertainer Mikey Junior.
"Now, more than ever, we need to come together and support one another through these unsettling times," said Twisted Tail's owner, George Reilly. "Doing that from your couch can be a bit tricky, so, grab a beverage and we’ll fill your living room with the comforting sounds of live blues in the hopes of sparking fond memories and hopeful glimpses of better times to come."
In addition to live music on Wednesdays, the restaurant also will post videos of whiskey tastings and discussions with Reilly and beverage manager Alex Gay on Mondays, and cocktail how-to demonstrations on Fridays. These videos will be posted by 3 p.m.
