Turn into the entrance to the "Hunters' Run" subdivision. You MUST turn into the subdivision entrance street to get to the driveway for the Moose Lodge. The Lodge drive does not connect directly to Ga-155.
Once inside, follow the hall around to the rear of the building for their ballroom. Come on down!  NOTE:  The Moose Lodge has a polished concrete floor, so wear shoes accordingly as it does not slide like a wood one does but sure is better than vinyl tile.

This NEXT Atlanta Country Nights at Brimstone Tavern in Alpharetta, will be Friday night, January 5th.

(we had over 70 dancers to the first dance this past Friday night, thanks to all that came out). 

This will be a COUPLES dance only (no line dancing). There will be tons of two step dancing,, most of the night, back to back two step songs so you'll get plenty. Plus east & west coast swing, cha-cha, night club & waltz and plenty of ballads for slow dancing. Keep in mind you do NOT have to be a couple as dancers in Atlanta love dancing with others, so there will be plenty of people to dance with. 

And the SPECIAL thing about this dance, unlike any other, you can have DINNER before or during the dance as the room has waitress service. Order dinner and drinks for you or you and a date or party. There will be candle Lites on all tables for a more romantic mood setting. So, a great dance to bring a date. 

The dance will start at 7:30 and run till 11:30pm.

At this time no dance lesson before the dance as this is our first night. But if the crowds are great, we'll look at adding an instructor before every dance. And if the crowds are great, we will look at adding a SECOND night per month. 

As always, you can get advance tickets for just $10 by going to the link below or $12 in cash or thru website at the door. 
Deadline for getting your $10 ticket will be NOON on Nov 30th. 

Address for Brimstone Tavern is 10595 Old Alabama Rd Conn. Alpharetta. 

To get your advance tickets, go to Atlanta Country Nights

Also, Monday & Wednesday nights,, LINE DANCE at Brimstone Tavern.
