OURAY – Diners will have a rare opportunity to enjoy live entertainment and fine dining on Saturday, Jan. 22, when the Ouray Elks Lodge hosts an open-to-the-public prime rib dinner. Dinner, served at 6 p.m., costing $20, includes prime rib, baked potato, salad and dessert.
“We think this will be a great opportunity for folks to enjoy a great meal and spend a relaxing and fun evening,” said event chairman Jim Pettengill. “Our dinner show will include singing and instrumental music, and at 7 p.m. we’ll open the entertainment to general karaoke. I think our audience may be surprised at the number of talented singers we have in our area, and I guarantee that there will be a wide variety of musical styles – country to rock and roll, blues to Broadway. Absolutely everyone is welcome to participate – if you can sing in the shower, you can sing karaoke. The club room is open to the public, so plan to make an evening of it and come share a great time.”
While there will be limited unreserved seating, diners are strongly urged to RSVP with Pettengill at 626-4239 by Thursday, Jan. 20, to determine how much food to prepare.
