FTEntertainment Schedule



The Rathskeller will nearly always have live music on Friday and Saturday nights starting around 8pm for your entertainment.  It's always free, and there's never a cover charge (although tipping the musicians is certainly appreciated and encouraged!)  So for a cure for the nothing-to-do-blues, come to the Skeller and hear some great, live, local musicians or other assorted events.

The Rathskeller is now displaying the artwork of several local artists.  Mary Bennett, John MacLean, David Hodges, Karen Roth and Francis  Chicoine have some wonderful artwork on display.  It's free to enjoy, but also for sale, should you want a piece for your private enjoyment!
