And There Was Much Rejoicing: Skipper’s Smokehouse Reopens July 24!

The reopening of Skipper’s Smokehouse, the venerable restaurant and music venue open for four decades before closing last year, has caused elation in the Tampa Bay music scene. Dunedin, St. Petersburg, and Ybor City are all thriving music communities, and with Skipper’s back in the fold north Tampa is back on the map!

From the looks of the photographs shared of the revamping, repainting, and resurrecting of the much-loved Skipper’s, it is apparent that music fans are in for a real treat.

Please read their recent post very carefully. They will be open on a limited basis.

Uncle John’s Band is on the schedule at present for all five Sundays in August, including the August 1 Jerry Garcia Birthday Bash.
