As society gradually makes its way back to something resembling normalcy, some of life’s simple pleasures are also returning. Though some festivals have made the decision to cancel this summer as the COVID-19 crisis remains a part of our daily lives, other summertime events and seasonal staples like Wisconsin State Fair, beer gardens, and farmers markets are returning in the coming months.

The local music series is another thing we’re excited to see making its way back into the fold this summer. Over the weekend, The Ivy House quietly revealed the lineup for its 2021 “Patio Daze” music series. Starting this month, the Walker’s Point events space will welcome a different band or solo performer to its gorgeous and spacious patio to play a show on the last Monday of each month. The series will kick off with Ben Harold & The Rising on May 24 and will conclude with a performance by Listening Party on October 25. Felix And Fingers Dueling Pianos will also perform at The Ivy House on June 3, August 5, October 7, and December 2.

In addition to the 7 p.m. shows, Ivy House will also offer CBD-infused cocktails (and other non-CBD beverages), will host food trucks that will start serving an hour before showtime, and will have specials available. Get ready for some Monday music (and sporadic dueling pianos performances) and check out the full Patio Daze lineup below.
