Saturday, June 9th at noon the gates open. It’s hard to believe but the Julian Dance and Backcountry BBQ is in its 12th year so I guess you could say it’s truly an annual event. Every year the Sons of the American Legion try to do something new and the old stuff that works well, we try to do better. As always, the merchants of Julian and it seems a lot more from down the hill, buy banners for the Dance that goes a long way in financially staging the event. Bottom line is without the merchants support the event would be a far cry from what it is today. Get ready because your yearly call from the Sons will begin this week to renew your support or to begin a new tradition of helping the Sons put on the best event of the year. Now if you’re not a merchant but still want to support the event with a banner you’d be very welcome. Just contact us at the website, juliandance.org and someone will call you with information. As you may know, the Sons of the American Legion are the sons and grandsons of Veterans that served America during times of military conflict. Consequently we proudly display a Wall of Honor of Veterans and active duty service members at the Dance. For a one time charge we will proudly display your banner for as long as there is the Dance. The wall is growing every year and our biggest hope is to worry about running out of room. The Sons have a tradition of comping entry to the event to all active duty personnel. This year you can contribute $15.00 or as much as you like and that will buy that man or woman a great BBQ meal at the event. For the short time the contribute button has been up, we are giddy with the response. More than anyone else we want the good folks of Julian to come out. If you’re new to the community and don’t know, the event is held outdoors at Menghini Winery. The Sons have built a huge dance floor and stage to accommodate a lot of dancers and great country bands. Tickets are available at the Legion and Town Hall or from any of the Sons floating around the community. Tickets for the event are $25.00 if you wait to buy them at the gate. They’re $20.00 if you buy them in advance by going to www. juliandance.org. But, and this is a BIG BUT, if you’re a local, you can get a further discount by going online and entering the discount code, imalocal and you can get a $15.00 ticket. Internet sales will close at midnight on June 8th so don’t miss out. One other thing, kids tickets if they’re 16 and under are five bucks at the gate only. There are reserved tables available for 6 or 8 that include meals but they are limited and sell out quickly. If you want one for your family or business go to the website and make a reservation soon. To add to the value of the event, parking is free. This is a cash venue but there will be an ATM available at the site. Some other things you’ll need to know is that pets of any kind are not allowed. Coolers and food and drink items are not allowed into the event either. Mountain nights can be cool, freezing for the downthehillers, so bring appropriate clothing just in case. We have a long tradition of the BIGGEST WATER BALLOON FIGHT in the backcountry so if your little ones are going to participate it might be wise to bring an extra shirt. Speaking of the kids, we have a large area set aside just for them with lots of games and amusements as well as the POST NOTES by Bic Montblanc traditional things like pie eating contests and sack races. The area is open till dusk and it offers the kids something to do other than wasting a beautiful day on a smartphone. The other thing it does is gives mom and dad a chance to hit the dance floor and not worry if the little ones are having a good time. The barbeque… well you won’t find better in the backcountry. The fellows roast “choice” dry rubbed tri tip “Santa Maria” style on an open oak flame that you can have in a sandwich or plate. The other choices are chicken, veggie burgers or giant hot dogs. Ranch beans and coleslaw are the sides that come with the “very hearty” plates of food. Drink choices are are terrific. We’ll have great “craft” beer from our local brewer Nickel and Societe Brewing in San Diego. For you lighter beer aficionados we’ll also have Coors Light and splits of champagne. Remember your ID because everyone gets carded at the gate. Of course there will be a variety of soft drinks and water. Menghini Winery will have wine available by the glass. The entertainment this year will be among the best that has ever been at the dance. I’ll give you more information about the bands as we get closer to the event but the lead off group is Tony Suraci, the Highwayman. This nine piece group replicates the sound and music of Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, Waylon Jennings and Johnny Cash when they teamed together to tour and record as the Highwaymen. The other band is Big Fat Steve, a great country, honky tonk band who’s played at large country venues for years. Their music is terrific, they’re lots of fun and fun to dance to. Professional sound and lighting is by Dave's Musical Entertainment. We’re going back to dance lessons this year and Kat will be giving line dance lessons in two sessions at 12:30 and 1:30 so don’t be late. The ever popular “Air Guitar” contest will be at around 5:15 with age groups of 10 and under, 17 and under and the “Immature Adult” division made up of all ages over 18 to 106. It a lot of fun. Here’s the basic info, the gate opens at noon and food and drink service and kids area will be available immediately. Half hour line dance lessons are at 12:30 and 1:30. Tony Suraci goes on at 2:00 till 5:00. Opening ceremonies with a great surprise for the National Anthem and Air Guitar are from 5:00 to 6:00. Big Fat Steve plays from 6:00 to closing at 9:00. There’s a lot more to tell you about and more surprises. Can you say “Bombs Away”. Get your tickets soon and we’ll see you at The Julian Dance. Hear Ye, Hear Ye! Wednesday night dinner at the Legion this week is Tilapia in a white wine sauce with rice pilaf and salad. Five o’clock till sell out so don’t be late. $8.50 for a great meal.
