Music In The Valley- Crabtree Valley Mall

Sunday, April 29, 2018

I love live music and I am so happy that spring weather may actually be here to stay and we can finally get our music fixes in on a regular basis. This past Wednesday, a friend and I were able to take advantage of the (long-awaited!) gorgeous weather and head over to Crabtree Valley Mall and take in their Music In The Valley concert series that runs every Wednesday night thru May.  The music is on The Patio (the upper level where Brio, Fleming's, McCormick & Schmick's are located) 

There is a different band each Wednesday ( you can check the line up here) and this past week was Smile and they were fantastic. They played a wide variety of songs and were very lively. On the patio, the restaurants offer varying drink specials that you can walk around and enjoy while listening to the band. These options that are outside of the actual restaurant patios are cash only.

The music starts at 6:30 and if you want to sit on the patio at any of the three restaurants, this is an option and a great time to do so as each one offers happy hour specials. Food and drink ( drink specials in NC are all day) that range in prices from $4-9 at each of the three restaurants! 

These are a few of the delicious cocktails and eats my friend we were able to partake in while relaxing to Smile. 

At Fleming's, my friend and I made a boo boo and ordered from the regular drink menu ( worth the price because the blueberry lemon drop is one of my favorite cocktails anywhere) my friend got the peach mule. Despite our mix up, they do offer 5 appetizer, wines, and cocktails for $6 each as a part of their 5 for $6 til 7. Here is a link to their offerings and this is every weekday, not just Wednesday! 

I love the patio at Brio and their Bar Bite menu has so many options starting at just $4! We grabbed calamari (not on bar bite menu but so tasty and light and I want some right now) and tried one of their cocktail specials, The Wild Island, It features pineapple infused vodka, Moscato, lemon, and pineapple juice for only $5!  Made me dream of summer life.

McCormick & Schmick's
This was actually my first time to dine at McCormick and Schmick's and it did not disappoint. They do their happy hour specials every single day (including weekends) and have been voted top Happy Hour in the country more than once. Their happy hour specials are from 4-7pm and range in price from $3-$9. And if you are there for Music In The Valley, your luck is even better as they offer their Shrimp & Shuck for a buck each during their happy hour offering!

I had heard rave reviews about their bacon jam burger and for $7, I decided it can't be beat. It comes with fries as well and I opted to wash it down with their most popular cocktail; the agave margarita (also $7) I recommend both!

If you are a fan of good music and tasty eats, I highly recommend you spend a Wednesday evening at Crabtree Valley Mall on their upper patio and partake in Music In The Valley and dining at Fleming's, Brio, and McCormick & Schmick's. Go hungry like we did and you can sample from all three places;)
