3. Concerts in the Garden: Windborne’s The Music of the Eagles

Did you always want to see The Eagles live, but never got the chance? Well, you are luck, because Windborne’s performance at the Concerts in the Garden is the next best thing.

4. Trace Adkins Live

There is not too much explanation needed for this one, except that you should probably grab tickets now, before they are gone. Since Trace Adkins is making a visit to Fort Worth’s favorite live country music venue, Billy Bob’s, you should too.

We know Christmas is only supposed to come once a year. But sometimes, Christmas comes in July. Flying Saucer invites you to join the un-tapping of rare holiday beers, an ugly tank-top contest, raffles, and Christmas style food specials all day long. Ho-ho-ho, what a way to cool off.
