Dianne's Dish

Hello everyone!

• We're gearing up for some BIG changes around here! A new website is in the works for all 3 of our venues. They will all have their own pages & calendars. The Continental Confidential will be phased out, but the new calendar format will allow me to give you the kind of band information you used to get in the old newsletter - hyperlilnks, bios, photos, songs, and videos! That's not going to happen immediately, but we're getting closer every day. I'm SO excited!! I hope you will be too. UPDATE: It looks like it may be up & running by the end of February!

• Speaking of changes, The Continental Club will now open at 4pm on Mondays!

Chicken Sh*t Bingo comes to South Austin! And C-Boy's has it! On Sunday, February 21 at 3PM, Dale Watson & his Lone Stars will begin a new tradition of Chicken Sh*t Bingo with a new chicken, plus music, dancing, hot dogs & prizes!
