Experience Sibella sound at June Night Out
By Tamara Cook
Cooper-Young Night Out is when business owners stay open late and offer up live music venues throughout the area along with special events, drawings, and discounts on shopping and dining in this popular hip-storic neighborhood. This month’s Night Out is Thursday, June 2 from 5-9pm. For the first time in CY, we welcome the three woman band named Sibella. Sibella’s sound is reminiscent of the Indigo Girls and Jack Johnson with a splash of cello and congas. The intellectual styling of Sibella’s music encourages an upbeat and engaging musical experience. Come and enjoy music by Sibella at the gazebo from 6 to 9pm.
This month we have some special events taking place around the neighborhood. At Tsunami, get in on the Iron Shaker competition which begins at 6pm. Guests pay an entrance fee of $15 which includes some snacks and tasting of two drinks. The boys against girls bartender teams competing will be handed a mystery basket containing one liquor and an ingredient to pair with it. Both teams will have full bar access to work their magic with. Liquor representatives will be on-hand to discuss the drinks and guests will vote for one of the teams. This fun adult event will be held on the bar side of the restaurant.
