The Last Bob Night!

This will be the very last Bob Night according to the man that started them all 6 years ago, Grant Peeples. We have had the privilege of being a part of Bob Nights since it has begun and are sad to see them go, but as one thing ends another begins. So come out and be a part of something awesome and memorable. As Bob Dylan himself said, “Take care of all your memories. For you cannot relive them.”

Doors open at 7:30

Admission: $15 at the door

To reserve a table of 8 or more contact grant@grantpeeples.com or call (850) 322-6917
