21st Annual Ladies Night / Marquette, MI - 4 to 8
Washington Street
Marquette, MI

A special event for me.... it was my 1st "gig" in the UP.  Every year, at the opening of Deer Season, when all the men are gone.... downtown Marquette opens up their doors to the women...for a fun night of camaraderie and shopping!  I played ladies night 5 years ago, when first coming back to the area..... I later learned the store was built in the 60's, by Menze Construction.  My dad, who ran the crews for Menze (back then), would have been on this job.  Same owners since the store was built.  Great folks, great history, great night.... I hope to see you there...  I will be in the window, singing and trying on boots!!!

 

The 21st Annual Ladies Night is set for Thursday, November 16, 2017 from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. in Downtown Marquette. Enjoy a night of shopping, delicacies, entertainment and fun as Ladies Night provides the perfect opportunity to spend a night on the town in Marquette’s Downtown District. Participating businesses pamper customers with in-store giveaways, hors d’oeuvres, sales, specials, prizes and more.

Complimentary transportation will once again be provided for the evening. Ladies can take advantage of this opportunity to explore everything Marquette’s Downtown District has to offer. Shoppers can also register custom gift baskets each valued over $800 and stocked full of gift certificates and goods from participating businesses.

Maxwell’s has so much to offer for everyone from the traveling business person to the locals looking for a great night of entertainment, food and drinks. You can come into Maxwell’s every night for live entertainment. Maxwell’s has the distinct honor of being one of the more hopping and off the hook with the who’s who clientele and fun places in Music City.

Every single night you can come into Maxwell’s and hear music of all genres from country to reggae to blue and rock along with singer songwriters who have written some of the hits you hear on the radio today as well as the up and coming songwriters and artists who you will hear on the radio soon. There is a great restaurant at Millennium but if being entertained while you eat is more your thing, you can order your dinner and drink in Maxwell’s and enjoy some fabulously talented folks while you eat. Maxwell’s menu features some good southern dishes prepared in good old fashioned southern ways. All in all, this downtown Nashville bar is a great venue in which to enjoy a memorable night's entertainment.

Operating Hours for Maxwell’s are:

Maxwell’s the Lounge is open daily from 2:00pm - 11:00pm - Live music begins at 7:00 p.m. central time.
