Don't Miss the Eclipse Party at Dog Days Bar & Grill!

What do you do when a rare total solar eclipse is coming? The best waterfront restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks throws a party, and you should make plans to join us! On Monday, August 21, 2017 from 11 am - 4 pm, Dog Days Bar & Grill is throwing a "Party at the Center of the Universe" to celebrate this awesome natural phenomena. 
  


Party at the Dog
We simply couldn't pass up the chance to make this incredible event one of the epic parties you've come to expect from Dog Days Bar & Grill! We've teamed up with Major Brands and Lens Mart Optical to make it happen from 11-4 pm on Monday, August 21.  

We'll be featuring celestial drink specials with Absolut Vodka, Malibu Rum, and Jameson Irish Whiskey. Music will be provided by the Taz & Dr. Cheese Drum & DJ show to make things even more festive, and we're even providing the special eyewear you need to safely get a gander at the solar eclipse. The specialists from Lens Mart Optical, located in Camdenton & Osage Beach, will be on hand to to answer questions and offer assistance to everyone viewing this awesome sight. 



Total Eclipse of the Sun
This month we will be experiencing a solar eclipse. This happens when the moon passes between the sun and Earth, and the moon blocks the sun from our sight, either partially or completely. Depending on where in the country you are watching from, this will make a difference on whether you see a partial or full solar eclipse. The "path of totality" is a 70 mile wide ribbon that will cross the U.S.A. from west to east. We expect the majority of coverage in our area sometime after 1:00 pm.  

Solar Eclipse Viewing Safety
Dr. Erin Gagnon from Lens Mart Optical gave us some valuable information about how the solar eclipse should properly be viewed. You can follow them on the Lens Mart Facebook page or visit Lensmartoptical.com
  • Wear approved solar eclipse viewers.
    Regular eyewear is not safe for looking directly at a partially eclipsed sun. You need to be wearing special-purpose solar filters that meet international standard ISO 12312-2 for safe viewing. Special "eclipse glasses" meet these specifications (which we'll have on hand at the Dog Days Eclipse Party!) You risk damaging your eyes if you look at the solar eclipse with only sunglasses, smoked glass, unfiltered telescopes or magnifiers, or polarizing filters. 
  • Cover eyes BEFORE looking.
    To make sure that you do not accidentally get a direct view of the solar eclipse, put special eyewear on before turning toward the sun. Once the glasses are securely in place, glance at the sun, but turn your eyes away before removing the eyewear again.  
  • Be aware of signs of eye damage. 
    Once the moon has completely covered the sun, this is the only time it may be safe to look up without the glasses, but once it begins reappearing, special eyewear should be replaced immediately. If you have looked into the sun without proper protection, "solar retinopahty" may occur. This is damage to the tissue at the back of your eye, or retina. This damage can be temporary, but in some cases it's permanent. Your retina does not have pain receptors, so be very aware of any changes to your vision, and contact your eye doctor immediately if you are worried. 
Watch With Us!
Amazing experiences like this are always better when you share them with a fun group of people, and that's exactly the type of person that hangs out at our family friendly Lake of the Ozarks waterfront restaurant. Plan to be here when we open at 11:00 am and grab a seat on the deck or chill out in the pool and watch the show from there. This is an event you do not want to miss, which can only be made better by enjoying right here with us at Dog Days Bar & Grill

Don't Miss Dog Days Bar & Grill's Silent Disco Party - Sunday, July 30

Dog Days Bar & Grill is once again hosting an exciting and unforgettable party especially for you - The Silent Disco at the Lake! Malibu Rum is joining the best bar at the Lake of the Ozarks to bring this unique and awesome event to the lake area this Sunday, July 30 from 9 pm - midnight. Get those dancing shoes ready for a night full of fun!  



What is a Silent Disco?
Let's break this down. "Silent" means there is no sound happening. "Disco" is a club or party at which people dance to music. A "Silent Disco" is a great big dance party where it appears that there is no music to anyone watching, but the dancers are actually listening to tunes of their choosing through wireless headphones. 

It may look kind of crazy, but it's an absolute blast! This is a fun concept that is being featured at music festivals all over the country, but our party brings this incredible phenomena to the Lake of the Ozarks.  



3 DJs - 3 Music Choices   
The music streaming through those wireless headphones will be provided by 3 of the lake area's favorite DJs: Willie B, Merf, and Jestin Case. One will be playing Country/Rock, another will be spinning EMD (Electronic Dance Music,) and the third will be all Top 40/Hip-Hop/Pop songs. 

Who will be spinning first? No one, because they will all be DJ-ing AT THE SAME TIME! The bluetooth enabled headphones that you will be wearing have a switch that allows you to pick which DJ you can hear. Depending on the channel that you choose, the headphones will light up with that music genre's color. Switch channels and the headphone color will change along with the music. There is no cover charge to attend the party, but there will be a $5 charge for the headphone rental if you'll be joining in on the excitement. 



Sound Like Fun? 
Of course it does! Our Lake of the Ozarks waterfront restaurant is all abuzz with this upcoming event. Everyone is really excited about the chance to give this amazing type of party a try. In addition to the chance to dance to your favorite genre of music, we'll also have drink specials going on featuring our co-host's product, Malibu Rum. That's a key ingredient in many of our best cocktails. 

Spread the word, share this blog, text your friends, and make sure everyone knows that they need to be at Dog Days Bar & Grill's Silent Disco at the Lake this Sunday, July 30, 2017 from 9 pm - midnight. It's an experience you won't want to miss, and one that will give you some incredible memories of yet another awesome party at the Dog!

Our Marvelous Mango Dishes Taste Great & Are Good For You

This Saturday, July 22, 2017 is a little known holiday - Mango Day! We appreciate the deliciousness of this sweet, juicy, tropical fruit at our Lake of the Ozarks waterfront restaurant, and we love it so much that it is prominently featured in many of our Dog Days Bar & Grill menu items this season. 



Delicious AND Healthy
Around 20 million tons of mangos are grown annually each year, and there are over 400 varieties of this tasty fruit. According to Medical News Today, this is the most widely consumed fruit in the world! Alone, the marvelous mango contains over 20 vitamins and minerals, and when paired with the other healthy ingredients on our menu, the benefits for your body skyrocket even higher. 

Zeaxanthin, an antioxidant found in mangos, plays a role in protecting the health of your eyes, and has been found to decrease the risk and progression of age-related macular degeneration. The beta-carotene found in this fruit lowers the risk for developing asthma and may even help to protect your body against certain cancers. 

The high fiber content promotes a healthy digestive tract and can lower blood glucose levels. Along with the fiber, the potassium in mangos can help to prevent heart disease. Vitamins A and C are present to help with healthy skin and hair growth. Lower cholesterol is also an added benefit of eating this tasty treat. Last, but certainly not least, the generous amounts of certain vitamins, along with 25 different kinds of carotenoids, gives your immune system a nice boost.    


Try Our Mango Dishes
This season Dog Days Bar & Grill added a lot of new menu items specifically targeted at the health-conscious. We did this by adding lots of natural ingredients that not only taste amazing, but also provide your body with much of what it needs daily to stay strong and healthy. The following dishes are where you will find mangos among our menu items. We've even included this amazing fruit in a dessert, and the delicious flavor in a few of our cocktails.   


Lobster Tacos & Asian Tuna Salad


Lobster Tacos

Fried lobster, cabbage, peppadew aioli, mango, and scallions in flour tortillas.


Asian Tuna Salad
Grilled Ahi tuna, fresh baby greens, pickled beets, radishes, fresh mango, tri-color carrot nest, heirloom tomatoes, peppadew, and cucumbers.

Maui Fish Bowl
Blackened filet of Mahi-Mahi topped with peas, carrots, fresh mango, and a coconut curry sauce with long grain wild rice and quinoa. 

Thai Chicken Bowl
Tamarind marinated chicken grilled and served on top of long grain wild rice and quinoa. Topped with fresh mango, peppadew, fresh cilantro, and a sweet Thai chili sauce. 


Maui Fish Bowl & Thai Chicken Bowl
Mango Tango
Cruzan Mango Rum with a splash of orange juice and zero-calorie lemon-lime soda. 

Straw-Mangorita
Half-strawberry and half-mango frozen margarita. 

Mango Moscato Creamsicle
Cruzan Mango Run with Domino Moscato Wine, mango puree, and ice cream. 

Mangos and Ice Cream
Fresh diced mango, vanilla bean ice cream, crumbled lady fingers, and whipped cream. 


Mangos & Ice Cream
If you haven't had the chance to experience the incredible flavor of mango yet, give it a chance by ordering one of these delicious dishes from the best restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks. We've given you lots of choices, and so far this year, everyone at Dog Days Bar & Grill has been loving them! We know you're going to enjoy them too.

The Amazing Musical Lineup For AquaPalooza 2017

AquaPalooza 2017 is happening this Saturday, July 15 starting at noon, lakeside, at the best waterfront bar & restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks! Hundreds of boats, thousands of people, tons of incredible food & drinks, and 4 of the best bands you've ever heard, all right here at Dog Days Bar & Grill



Scott Duncan
Coming to us from the Kansas City area, Scott Duncan is one of the most accomplished and skilled musicians you'll ever have the pleasure of listening to. He has a wonderfully unique approach to his performance of popular music, plus the amazing ability to vocally change characteristics from one song to the next, allowing him to evoke the sound and feel of the original performers. Expect to hear a little bit of everything: Beatles, U2, Johnny Cash, Boy George, Neil Diamond, Outkast, Jimmy Buffett, Men At Work, John Denver... the list goes on and on! Scott is a true crowd-pleaser. 




The Mixtapes 
This premier 90's tribute band is made up of 5 incredibly talented performers that all take over lead vocals at some point, allowing them to cover a wide range of hits from the decade. They cover the best of yesterday's radio hits with tunes from the Cranberries, Beck, Nirvana, No Doubt, Smashing Pumpkins, Weezer, Foo Fighters, Radiohead, Third Eye Bling, and more. During their show you can relive the days when radio was fun and concerts really got you excited!   



Chris Weaver Band
Mixing southern rock with soul and country blues, Chris Weaver and his incredible band have been inspiring crowds all around the world for many years now. Much of their music's inspiration came from growing up in a musical household and listening to songs by Tom Petty, Bob Seger, John Mellencamp, and Joe Cocker, to name a few. The band has released 2 albums, "Standing In Line" and "American Dreamer." This last album showcases soulful music with a gritty passion for songs that define the American fabric - determination, love, family life, faith in a higher power, and the helpfulness of the American Dream. 



The Elton John Experience
Elton John's music has made its way into history and into our hearts over the years. When his songs play, its hard not to join in and sing along. Dennis Laffoon's Elton John Experience pays tribute to this incredible music, recreating the memorable performances of Sir Elton John. Dennis, a keyboard prodigy, regional celebrity, and national recording artist, not only brings the songs you know and love, but also the outrageous costumes, exciting stage show, and incredible special effects.

It's time once again for the highly anticipated, single largest 1-day boating event at the Lake of the Ozarks! AquaPalooza 2017 is happening on Saturday, July 15 at Dog Days Bar & Grill starting at noon.

Dog Days Bar & Grill, Lake of the Ozarks, AquaPalooza

The Lakeside Concert
This amazing annual event at the Lake of the Ozarks is centered around an unbelievable lakeside concert featuring 4 incredible musical acts. We put up a stage facing the lake so that everyone can enjoy the show from the restaurant, the docks, and the water in front of it. This year's lineup includes: 


Scott Duncan
The Mixtapes
Chris Weaver Band
The Elton John Experience 



The Thousands of People
We weren't kidding when we said that this was the single largest 1-day boating event at the Lake of the Ozarks. People come from all over the country to attend this awesome party. There is a waiting list for dock slips a year in advance, and all of the boaters that don't get one simply tie up to each other and fill the entire cove with watercraft. In between all of those boats, the lake is filled with people on floaties, sitting back, relaxing, and having a great time with all the new friends they're meeting. 

You don't have to come by boat to join the AquaPalooza fun. You can hear the music from the restaurant, and you can even see the stage from most areas to the side of it, including the Dog Pound. There will also be vendor booths open to browse during the show, and of course, that brand new pool to hang out in! 


Dog Days Bar & Grill, Lake of the Ozarks, AquaPalooza

The New Pool
You've surely heard by now that we've put in an awesome pool at Dog Days Bar & Grill. There is a family friendly section on one side, plus a more grown-up area with in-water tables and a swim-up bar. This year you can cool off in the water without ever having to get into the lake!  


Dog Days Bar & Grill, Lake of the Ozarks,

The Delicious Food & Drinks
As always, we'll be serving up the best-tasting food at the Lake of the Ozarks all day long, beginning at 11 am. Lunch, dinner, and all the snacks you need in between to keep you going all day long.
