City Center Unplugged featuring Tia Carroll
Celebrate your summer with City Center Unplugged, a Friday evening outdoor music series featuring an array of local bands.
Save those Friday evenings for dinner at one of City Center Bishop Ranch’s many restaurants. Grab an outside table, enjoy a leisurely dinner, and catch some of the tunes that will be filling Alexander Square.
Each Friday’s music will have its own rhythm and beats, with everything from retro to rock, Brazilian to blues, Latin to salsa, and of course a good dollop of jazz. You just might find yourself dancing your way back to the car. And setting the tone for a fine weekend.
