Rhodeside Grill


I hosted the open mic at IOTA Club and Cafe for over three years and have moved our open mic night down the street to Rhodeside Grill since IOTA sadly closed October 1st.

We are continuing with the same format as we had at the open mic at IOTA: two signups at 7:30pm and 10:00pm with a feature doing a 30 minute set immediately following the second signup at 10:00pm.

New, improved details are: it's all ages til 10pm, 21+ after 10pm. Rhodeside Grill has their own parking lot so if it's not already full there is parking close by or if it is there should still be plenty of street parking. Better sound system! Two monitors now instead of just one. Rhodeside Grill serves food til 1am also!

If you haven't already, please come by and check us out! Rhodeside Grill is a super awesome space and we've been having a blast at our new "home away from home away from home" :-) Hope to see you soon!!

All my love,

Alex The Red Parez aka El Rojo
