The Homespun Ceilidh Band will be performing this Sunday, 12 June, at Growlers of Gaithersburg Brew Pub & Restaurant, at the corner of E. Diamond and Summit Avenues, in Gaithersburg, Maryland, from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM.

Borrowing Felicia's description ...

Enjoy an evening of old-style celtic entertainment in a congenial setting for the whole family. Good home-brewed beer and ale; meals also available. Come solo or bring a friend, but do stop by and have a pint with us!

We'll be doing our specialty -- toe-tappin' jigs & reels, plus some lyrical airs and a few polkas and waltzes.

Growlers is at the corner of E. Diamond & Summit Avenues, 2 blocks East of Rte. 355, not far from intersection of Rte 355 @ Shady Grove Road. It is next to a railroad crossing. On-site parking is freely available; also free overflow parking across the tracks, with overhead walkway.

We played at this location several years ago when it had a different name and owner; I'm looking forward to being back there again. I hope some of you can make it out there!

That is so close, I so very much want to come and bring Themselves. But ... is that a child-friendly venue? I don't generally think "pub" and "small children" in the same thought. :| (I keep hoping y'all'll perform at a festival that we can get to!)

I really don't know -- the last time I was there (different name, different management) it had a sort of "what Bennigan's is a plastic corporate imitation of" feel to it, but better lit ... adult restaurant, not especially boisterous (but, of course, louder while we were playing, and not exactly quiet the rest of the time), with a bar area. I haven't seen it in its current incarnation. I'll see whether Gwenna has a useful answer.

I got a reply:
Growler's is kid friendly, it's more like a restaurant than a pub...my son is coming for a while on Sunday. It has pizza and chicken fingers on the menu.
Maybe we'll see you there after all? *hug*

Erp. That question about "child friendly venue" was me, xpioti. Sorry about that.

I figured it was you, but it's nice to have that confirmed.
