Branson Talk / 2020 Restaurant or Show Reviews
« on: June 29, 2020, 01:44:43 PM »
I was in town this weekend, went down friday and came home Sunday..  Main reason was to go see some of my favorite shows that have been shut down for 4 months, and eat and some of our favorites spots.. 

OH!! YES!!  and to just get out of the house and out of the state!!

Arrived Friday lat afternoon,   
Stopped in At Choices Concert Hall for what is probably the best Cheeseburger in Town.. They open at 4 on Wed-Sat, have all kinds of Varied Live entertainment, along with a full Kitchen and a Full Bar, Topped off with the LArgest Dance Floor in Branson... If you want more info check them out on FB at Choices Concert Hall

Friday Night went to see Grand Jubilee With Mike Patrick and his Bunch at Grand Country Complex always a good show,, and the only show in town that is almost all new Every year,,  He had good music, Good jokes, Probably the best band in town and they are all good people.. 

Saturday morning took a cruise checking out new and old locations.... 
Old ramada is down to the ground and nothing going on there yet..
Wonderworks building looks good all finished up, and had a waiting line of people at opening
The Aquaraium doesnt appear that it will open anytime soon.. Lots going on there, but progress is hard to see.
The zipline on 165 at the Runaway coaster appears to be complete, But saw no one on it, people riding the coaster, just nobody ziplining.

Lunch at the Cheeky Monkee,  Hands down the best Pulled Pork Sammich in town, it is a bar, south on 165 down past Fall Creek area.  Cold Brews, Good Sammich.. Love that place!

Sat afternnon went to see Comedy JAmboree at Grand Country Resort, yep another Mike Patrick production, he has a great crew, they have good music, good laughs, just an overall good show..

Afterwards we headed to Branson Center Stage but couldnt get there because of the stupid "peaceful" protest these guys are doing now..  serious BS going on there!!   
ANYWAY!!! 
Supper?
lets see,   
OK,  BAck to Choice Concert Hall, they have a House BAnd called ""What 4"".  these guys are several of the local entertainers and good in their field,   Funny Funny show,  Great music, always people in the crowd that come up and sing.  Just a "good ole boys (and Gals) SHow..  Every Sat at 5 in the afternoon, had French Dip Sammich for supper.. YUMM!!!
SAt Night..??  Show....  LMAO!!  you know where I went..  The HAygoods, Cant say enough about those guys and gal..  After 4 months off.  they have Almost completely redone the show.. new lights, new Pyro, New Mountian Dancing routine.  They just were off the wall!!   Amazing as always..  After show, we set out back talk to the 'Goods in the parking lot, couple of drinks, some snacks, good conversation... finally gave up about 1:30 in the morning..

Great weekend.   got to see lots of friends that i havent seen since Feb or before..

With the Rate changes and Blackout dates imposed by Ozark Valley this week, I thought maybe some of us may want another option for rooms..

I called Michele at All Access, as you know (or should know), All Access Branson is our go to people for discount show tickets and they have helped us many times in the past to find rooms when Ozark, or Classic was sold out.

They are locally owned, and the ladies that run it are all family. They are Great, I have used them for years for ticket discounts, NO upsell, NO condo/time share BS, NO bait and switch, AND the deliver your tickets to your motel for no charge.

All Access is tied in directly with Hall of Fame Motel, right there on 76 highway across the street from the Wax Museum and Castle of Chaos.   3005 W 76 Country Blvd

After a couple of calls with Michele, She was able to work us in a price of 50.00 per night INCLUDING TAX.
This price is good for any night during the year.
NO blackouts,
they have 64 rooms and all rooms are accessable without using stairs,
Rooms seem bigger to me,
Updated with Flat screens in most rooms,
Micro, Fridge, Coffee in all rooms,
Some rooms have a Desk and Chair in them also.
WiFi of course,
Nice outdoor Patio area with easy chairs, for late evening converation or hanging out.
Parking lot is pretty Level compared to many others,
There is a back street that you can access of Gretna, So you DONT have to get on 76 unless you want to.

3 Things they DONT have..
#1 No Swimming Pool.
#2 Their office/kitchen building burned down last year, and at this point there is NO breakfast, with NO plans at this point for Breakfast for this year anyway.. Could change, but dont plan it at this point.
#3 No pet rooms.

IF need be, You can call Michele, express your desire for the above immenities and she will get you a discount room at another motel in town,  BUT the price wont be the 50:00 per night rate,,  It will be discounted, but depends on motel and their rate, BUT michele will be able to verify pricing with you while on phone..  NO surprises..

Obviously Ozark Valley still has these added bonuses, so may be prudent to call Andrea if these are important to you. Always an option..

You must Call Michele or Lori at All Access Branson, at 417-332-2121, Tell them you are calling for the SDCFans discount..  IF you dont mention SDCfans, you wont get the price. 

Again the price is 50.00 per night and that INCLUDES all state taxes.

I would also suggest if you have multiple trips planned this year, you make reservations now..   If you wait until last minute for reservation, no guarantee on room availability.

So, give them a call, as always PM me with any questions/concerns. 
I wasnt aware of Ozark Valley's changes until last week. 
Hopefully this will help us all out.

Terrible!!  Just terrible..  Such a great family!   my thoughts are with them..

From Facebook post...
""The most difficult posting of our lives.

Dede Edwards Sanders & I, with grief-stricken hearts & pain beyond all measure, lost our oldest son, Austin Sanders last night (Sat., Jan. 11th, 2020) in a 1-car accident. It was about 9:55 PM while Austin was driving home south on Hwy. 65 from Springfield, MO. He fell asleep, drifted off of the hwy., the vehicle flipped, & Austin Sanders was killed instantly. We truly appreciate your prayers, love, & condolences. Please respect our privacy as we work our way through these difficult hours & days as we prepare a celebration of his 29 earthly years & lay him to rest. You are welcome to leave messages here, no phone calls, please. We have spoken to our family & closest friends all morning & now wanted to let you all know. We will announce funeral plans in the next few days. If you know any of our friends or Austin's, who need to know, please share this with them. Thank you again for you for your love & understanding. Our hearts are broken.

Sincerely, Terry, Dede, & Evan Sanders

Peace be with you Austin Sanders! You will always be with us.

Branson Talk / NYE in Branson.
« on: October 06, 2019, 03:41:28 PM »
Anybody here planning on being in Branson the last 3 or 4 days.?     
I talked to Andrea and they will be closing for business mid-December.
I always come in for a NYE show and stay 3 or 4 days. I talked to her and she has agreed to let u stay at the motel if we want to.. 
No  Daily Maid Service,
No Breakfast
We can get all the fresh linen we need.

Answers::   Dates will be Thurs the 26th  ---  Wed Jan 1st.
                 Regular discount rate..
                 CHECK OUT TIME ON WED.. Out by 9:30.      Andrea is helping us out on rooms and staying onsite, But she has family plans on Wed and will be leaving town.  SO we need to be out of her way so she can clean rooms and go on her vacation..

Question is..  Anybody in this group coming into town wanting to stay With us.?
We will use 3 rooms for 3 nights,
She was kind of wanting a list in advance.
So if you think you want to stya let me know, so I can get a total count..   (LOL-she said the more the merrier)
If the weather is decent I may bring down fire pit and firewood.
Think about it, let me know.  Then we will finalize right after thanksgiving..
