Cheers to the Expendables

Hunting & Gathering



Your Saturday plans have been fulfilled in the adjacent parking lot of Oak & Stone on November 3rd. Corral your best drinking and dancing crew for the Craft Beer Fest, featuring over 80 taps on site (56 inside the restaurant and 25 outside in the performance area). Yes, there will be stoke-worthy performances by renowned Florida bands such as Just Chameleons from Tallahassee, Summer Survivors from Bradenton and Zander from Ft. Lauderdale. Especially crowd-drawing is the headlining of reggae-rock phenomena, The Expendables, a California band celebrating all things surfing, partying and playing soulful, feel-good acoustics with hits like "Drift Away", "Down Down Down" and "Let Loose". Live music will play from 4pm-11pm while foodie favorites like Oak & Stone's wood-fired pizza, No.10 Can nachos, Everything Spice garlic knots and Philly Cheesesteak eggrolls will be served inside and out on the patio.

General admission is $30 in advance/$40 at the door or enjoy the show from the Front Row Section by jumping on the limited quantity tickets for $40 in advance/$50 at the door. And if you’re really feeling like balling out at the party, score limited VIP tickets for $110/per person (only available online). VIP ticket holders receive a Meet & Greet with The Expendables, private acoustic set with The Expendables, lounge seating under a tent, food and beer included with cash bar available, as well as additional access to Front Row Section.
