Eddie's Seafood and Raw bar with Italian Fusion Cuisine, held their first annual Easter Brunch and Easter Egg hunt including the Easter Bunny Himself! When you think Eddies - DONT think Vinnie's - Eddie's is now waterfront casual fine dining - meaning you won't feel uncomfortable being dressed down, yet still have one of the best meals available on Lake Norman with a spectacular view of the Lake for their enormous lake front patio.

Sunny Ledfurd is coming to Rudder THIS YEAR for Cinco de Mayo (Monday May 5th 2014 - and it's also LKNfun's 12th Anniversay!) So we'll certainly be at Rudder this year "8 Years After Pics" Mark your calendars - Cinco de Mayo 2014 is going to be HUGE at Rudder - These pictures are from the LKNfun 4 year Anniversay party at Midtown with Sunny Ledfurd. This was back when Midtown Harborside was still open (obviously) AND were "boat party" friendly. This was one of the biggest parties that I can remember at Midtown. There was a line out the door by 9pm and it just kept getting BIGGER. Photos by Timmy and Nate.
Photos from a HUGE day at the Sandbar for Memorial Day Weekend Sunday. Lots of familiar faces in this album, and great memories of friends we miss. LOL - again, we stumbled across people in this album that you might recognize from TV and/or Fox News LOL... too much fun. These throwback albums continue to put smiles on our faces here at LKNfun. Photos by Nate and Timmy.
Rusty Rudder was packed after the first Saturday of beautiful weekend weather of the 2014 season. Only about 8 boats at the Sandbar on Saturday, and most the people from the Lake were at the Rudder. It was Fields Birthday, and also several bachelorette parties were in attendance as well. Sunday, there were only 4 boats at the Sandbar... We'll post some old school early season boating pics this week from the archives. MARK your calendar for Cinco de Mayo weekend at the rudder - rumor has it that Sunny Ledford will headline - just like in the good old days! Photos by Nate.
Another HUGE night at the Rudder... this throwback is from Friday March 14, 2006. Sunny Ledfurd always draws a fun crowd and this March Friday 8 years ago was no exception. Enjoy - Lots of new faces popped on the scene in 2006. Photos by TIMMY!
Galway Hooker hosted the 1st Annual Casino night to Benefit Bit O Luck Horse rescue upstairs in Waterford Hall. The casino company brought all the gaming tables and dealers and it felt just like Vegas! A lot of money was raised all while having fun gambling at the vegas style tables. Watch the LKNfun calendar for more great evenings like this coming over the next several months as we head into spring. Photos by Patrick Nicholson.
Hotshots in Mooresville was packed for Ladies night with Half Price wine by the glass and the games on the many TV's throughout the establishment. You've probably driven by Hotshots and wondered what was inside... wonder no more - it's the place to be in Mooresville. Watch the LKNfun calendar for our daily specials and entertainment.

Bobby Brantley from the hit reality TV show, “Lizard Lick Towing,” came to Mooresville's, Wholesale Direct Auto Sales on Saturday March 29th and was PACKED with fans from our favorite repo show!

DJ Bob was there spinning the tunes, and the crowds dancing while they waited their turn to meet Bobby Brantley in person. Photos by Dana Pianowski.
ICE Martini bar took a couple months to catch on with the Professional Crowd as a unique sophisticated location to hangout and enjoy friends and conversations over some of the finest handcrafted cocktails available at the Lake. If you haven't been to ICE Martini, watch the LKNfun calendar for our daily specials and entertainment. If you've been looking for a casual professional place for hanging out with friends - look no further - ICE Martini was designed with you in mind. Photos by Patrick Nicholson.
A GREAT album from back in 2005! Tuesday Night August 23rd at the Rudder - SLAMMED! Lots of FUN faces from 9 years ago. The first pictures are from an LKNfun Photo shoot with Brooklyn Decker... possibly the last photo shoot before her debut in Sports Illustrated in 2005. LOL - We picked her, and the other models up at the Blue Stone Harbor docks in the LKNfun Baja, and passed the Rudder on the way out to an island with, models, photography gear and tons of clothes. That first pic is Brooklyn leaning on the LKNfun Baja :-)
Early Ray always draws a fun crowd and this Saturday was no exception. Great Crowd and Tons of Fun! DON'T FORGET - Simplified is playing LIVE next Saturday March 29th at the Rudder. Simplified is one of Charlotte's most promising bands with several of their original hits already playing on Pandora. If you haven't been to a Simplified show (where have you been??) then mark your calendars for this Saturday at the Rudder. Photos by Patrick Nicholson.

City Tavern Throwback Pics were a huge hit last time, so we went back through the archives and stumbled upon this gem. In the first picture... that isn't a mirror - that's the CROWD. DJ T-Nice was spinning everyone into a sweaty dancing mess as usual, but this Friday night on the 12th of November 2004 was especially packed. We didn't spare anyone... not even our neighbors :-)... Photos by Nate.
The dreary St. Patricks Day party started a little later than anticipated. Great pics of Jacks BEFORE the RENOVATION coming soon! We'll keep you posted.

What was supposed to be a Grand Re-Opening Party at Jacks - just turned into a PARTY with Early Ray! Once again the Government delays small business growth with permitting issues. So - stay tuned to the LKNfun calendar - at some point WE WILL close for 3 Days (likely late this month) and THEN we'll have a GRAND re-opening party. LKNfun keeps you informed better than anyone else - so stay tuned - Jack's is gonna be even Better! Photos by Nate.
I miss the good old days at the Double Door. Nothing has ever replaced the Double Door as the party destination where all walks of life came together under one roof. You could count on a HUGE party every Friday and Saturday night - back when people actually paid cover charges for live entertainment at the lake. I still don't know why people won't pay covers anymore... that's one of the reasons we no longer have great live entertainment like we used to. These pictures are from a night with Tim Clark - he used to be one of the biggest draws at the lake. LOTS of familiar faces in these pics. Enjoy!
We took a trip down to Harbortowne Marina on Lake Wylie for the Southtown Watersports Boat show. Just a reminder it's almost boating season and its that time of year to the boat to make sure your batteries are charged, nav lights work, all safety equipment is in good working condition, and of course... check to make sure it starts. We've had some crazy weather lately, and more rain on weekends last year than any year we can remember. Stay tuned to LKNfun as we shift gears into Spring! Our favorite time of year!
The Cuervo promo girls came to on the Roxx to hand out FREE swag and samples. On the Roxx had an early crowd thanks to the Cuervo Promo, and they had a packed house by 10:30pm grooving to the sounds of the lakes favorite DJ - DJ Bob. Watch the LKNfun calendar for On the Roxx daily specials and events! Photos by Nate.
Here we "Throw" again! Throw Back Thursday for St. Patricks Day at the Galway Hooker! These photos are from Wednesday March 17th 2004, and Thursday March 17th 2005. Once again, for all the people that were at Lake Norman in what I refer to as the "Glory Days" there will be a lot of familiar faces... just younger :-) THIS YEAR will be HUGE at the Galway Hooker again - They kick off St. Patricks Weekend on Saturday at noon (FREE EVENT) and obviously ON St. Patricks Day Monday March 17th Galway Opens at 8am to kick off a HUGE day of fun and entertainment. See the LKNfun calendar for details. I think there are a few pics from the Trop in there too, and a couple from Double Door. Photos by Nate.
MoJo's is more than a bar with live music. MoJo's is the product of 3 local caterers who decided to work together and share a kitchen. While we did take photos of their live entertainment, and they will continue to have great entertainment and dancing, MoJo's will most likely be known for their food, and their bar and night time entertainment will quickly fill the void for a place to dance your heart away. Stay tuned to the LKNfun Calendar for MoJo's Food specials and nightly entertainment. Photos by Dana Pianowski.
THROW BACK THURSDAY! Well...it was bound to happen... we started looking through our archives and decided it was time we participated in THROW BACK THURSDAY! This album is from Wednesday May 11th, 2005 at City Tavern Lake Norman. For those who weren't around in the glory days, City Tavern was THE place to be on Wednesday nights. You'll see a LOT of familiar faces in this album... the only difference is... they were 9 years younger! Uh Oh - Thursdays are going to be a LOT OF FUN! I miss the City Tavern Days - now City Tavern LKN is a Furniture Store. Double Door pics next week??? Photos by "31 year old" Nate.
