Don Morris played almost every third Friday of the month at the Dawgleg for the last 20 years. He was a beloved friend to our owners and staff and will be greatly missed. Idle Creek will honor Don and his wife, Cheryl, on June 18th at 7:30pm, the night he was next scheduled to play. Listen to Don’s music with us and reminisce together on a life well lived. Donations in their honor can be made that night to National MS Society, Catholic Charities, and the ASPCA. Dinner and drink specials TBA. Cheers to Don and Cheryl!

Notes of bourbon, chocolate, coffee, and roasted wood. Bottle-conditioned in our earth-bermed cellar for excellent aging capabilities.
We’ll be serving our already famous beermosas, as well as releasing bottles of Dad’s Bourbon Stout (limited amount available on draft). Look for menus coming soon on the event page. No reservations necessary, and extended hours will be (brunch served all day!):
