Ever been to Mary's Lounge? That's the question I always got asked. For a long time, the answer was no. Heck, I didn't even know where it was, let alone if it was any good or not. Then, I went on a Sunday. It truly is the last of the honky tonks in SWLA. You cannot go to Mary's and not have a good time. Whether you have some beverages, eat some amazing food, or just want to people watch. The music is always jamming with live bands, and when they open all of the doors, it feels like home.

This weekend Mary's Lounge will host the 6th annual Hanna Clair McVey Memorial Dace Scholarship Fundraiser. The event will be packed with tons of activities for all ages, all for an amazing cause hosted by Mary's Lounge. The event will feature fun jumps, silent and live auctions, door prizes, food galore, live music, baked goods, and a brisket cook-off. The live entertainment will feature our own local talent taking the stage for a good cause.
