3. Saturday: Spammy Jammy

Spammy Jammy, held every June at the Little Bar in Goodland, has something to do with Spam, pajamas, and warding off hurricanes. But it has more to do with an excuse for a party. After all, if you want to have a hurricane party, why wait for a hurricane?

Saturday, June 23, night marks the annual Spammy Jammy. Following Sunday’s “Spamover” after-party, the Little Bar will close for the summer, and not reopen until October.

Revelers will pack the restaurant, listening to live music by Kelly Halloran and Dan Signor, followed by the Raiford Starke Band, among others, competing in toilet paper races, and admiring the Spam creations submitted for judging.
