Mercer Tavern – Homegrown Friday May 30, 2014

HG

Edmonton get ready for the weekend and a Friday night that will blow your socks off. The last Homegrown Friday night of every month, Mercer Tavern brings you some of the hottest local DJs. This Friday night is no exception as we will feature one of the biggest names in our City, Dusty Grooves alongside your Friday night residents Polyesterday and yours truly. We will be dropping science with top shelf 80s and 90s jams along side the freshest Indie cuts and mind melting mashups. This is the night of the week to get your motor running. Music starts at 9pm until close.

Enjoy locally crafted brew from Yellowhead Brewery, $4.25 Sleeves and $6.25 Pints.

Great atmosphere, superior food and beverage selection, friendly service and one of the hippest crowd in town.
