TEntertainment 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.
