What’s Playing at the Bluebonnet Opry

May 15th, 2016 by Pamela Murski

Bluebonnet Opry

Brenham is home to the Bluebonnet Opry, an eclectic music venue hosting up and coming artists from all around the world.  Events are held the third Thursday of each month at the Silver Wings Ballroom in Brenham Texas with the Doors opening at 5:30 p.m. and the show starting at 7:30 p.m. You can’t beat the unbelievable price for live music and a great experience!  Tickets are $5.00 a person and sold at the door.  You don’t even have to buy your tickets before hand as so many of the venues require now.  This fun show can be on your calendar every month so if you have the time at the last minute, you know a ticket will  still be available for you when you show up at the door!

The Bluebonnet Opry is 3 miles away from the ranch and Bed and Breakfast.  Make a night of it, book a room at the B&B and after the show you will only be 5 minutes from a pure country nights restful sleep!  Wake up to the sights and sounds of country life, fresh air and a made from scratch Texas  breakfast to be had in the comfort of your own private room or out on one of the great porches overlooking the countryside.

If music is your thing, then make a weekend of it and stay a little while longer at the ranch to venture out and enjoy some of the other great music venues in our area.  The Kenney Store is a great little spot to grab a bite, drink a cold one and do some happy boot scottin’ to live bands most every night of the week & weekend.  Set up in an old general store in Kenney Texas (not really big enough to be called a town anymore), this hoppin’ spot is only 10-15 minutes down the road from the ranch.

Another  fun little place with an awesome vibe is  Home Sweet Farm Market & Biergarten!  You will find live music here (free no less!) most Friday and Saturday nights.  Grab a cold one from the assortment of micro brews & wine offerings, order up a artisanal cheese plate or charcuterie platter for a treat and settle in to hear some great music!  The Home Sweet Farm Market & Biergarten is only 5 minutes away from the ranch in Historic Downtown Brenham, just off the courthouse square.  Some Friday and Saturday nights, you will  also find a live band at Nathans BBQ…..you can groove to the tunes while you chow down on local BBQ!

Of course, you’re gonna need to eat, so let  us suggest some of our favorite local eateries:  96 West (Tapas & outdoor dining), Volares (authentic Italian), BT Longhorn Saloon (steak & seafood), Los Cabos (Mexican & steak), and Sealand (fried seafood & boiled crawfish).  Of  course, there are many other  restaurants to choose from as well.  Just  ask us if one of these don’t whet your appetite!

After all the great entertainment and delicious food, you’re gonna need a good bed for the night.  If  you haven’t booked a room, go ahead and do so now so you won’t be left out in the cold!
