Live, from Peoria, Illinois, it’s Saturday Night starring this week’s host, The Ivy Club with special musical guests, EVEN Steven!
Now please welcome this week’s host, The Ivy Club!
I’ve never been to the Ivy Club and recently found out that they have a non-members night every Second Saturday of the month for an event called, “Cocktails For A Cause.”
This is a cocktail party that benefits a certain local non-profit organization and you can read more about it by by clicking here.
The Peoria Art Guild was this month’s featured non-profit organization, which I’m happy to support.
The party is happening on the back patio, so let’s go check it out!
There’s the pool and Jeri and her friend were selling the drink tickets. I bought a few and headed in to the party.
There’s the patio and tables and there’s live music tonight from EVEN Steven, but they were taking a break when I got there.
The Ivy Club has a nice tiki bar on the patio, so let’s go snag a seat and get a beer!
Liz and Stevie were the two bartenders on duty and Liz served up an ice-cold can of Miller Lite.
They have sandwiches from the snack bar at these events, but I got there too late and the snack bar was closed. So this is my Saturday Night dinner, I’ve had worse!
Wow, this is a great view from my seat at the tiki bar.
Let’s walk the plank and get some shots of the Illinois River at night.
The river looks very nice on this summer evening!
Here’s a view of the patio from up on the plank.
When I got back to the patio, EVEN Steven were back on stage and they sounded great!
Meanwhile, back at the Tiki Bar it’s time for the second course of my Saturday Night dinner and another shot of the wonderful view from here.
Here’s a parting shot of the Ivy Club on a Saturday night.
Thanks to everyone there for a fun night and the nice hospitality! Be sure to check out the next Cocktails For A Cause on Saturday, August 10.
