The band I had booked for the evening canceled on us. I am trying to find a replacement but at this time I've had no luck. But I promise I will do my best to try to find us entertainment. If I can't we will throw some credits on the Juke Box and still have a great time because we can always make our own fun here at Post 129!
We will now be hosting karaoke on both Fridays and Saturdays in the Liberty Hall (Non Smoking Hall)! On Fridays we start at 7 pm on Saturdays we start at 6 pm. So be sure to come on up and show us what you got! Or just come up and cheer on everyone else. We have some great singers you will be happy you came.

This Saturdays food truck is the Chunky Tomato food truck. This is one of the Post favorites so be sure to come on in hungry! 
The Queen of Diamonds started a little over a month ago but the pot is already above $2000 so be sure to come on up for your chance to win. 
Remember we play steak bingo on both Fridays and Saturdays every weekend! 
New Years Eve!!
Plan on celebrating the New Year with us here at Post 129 - we always have a great time and always have a few surprises in store for the evening. This year is shaping up to be even better with two separate venues to throw amazing New Years Eve Parties!

In the Freedom Hall we are extremely excited to announce that we will have the band Yowsah here starting at 8 pm. They are an amazing band and I promise you you will have a great time! In the Liberty Hall we will have karaoke with no other than our very own Bob and Diana Pratt also starting at 8 pm.  With this stellar entertainment on both sides there is no where else you will want to be! 

And remember there will NOT be a cover charge. We like to throw what we call no fuss parties for New Years Eve. Great Entertainment, Simple Decorations, and Wonderful Friends. What more can you ask for?

There will be party favors and a champagne toast at midnight but other than that it is just come, party, drink, and dance! No dinner will be available that evening. We are requesting that if possible everyone brings in some snacks to share. 
Deck the Chairs is Now Open! 
Our chair is decorated at the Deck the Chairs event and it looks great. Special thanks to all of the volunteers that work so hard to pull it together. Be sure to stop by downtown Jacksonville Beach and check them out and place your vote for best chair. 
Click below to check out January's dinner specials.

Also please note we will be making some changes in the kitchen very soon. The first thing that will be happening is we will no longer be open for lunch on Saturdays starting in January. We will also be removing some items from the regular menu that are not moving and due to price increases we will be increasing some menu items prices. As always we are doing everything we can to keep our prices low but as the food cost increase there is only so much we can absorb. Once we have all the details worked out we will publish the new menu.
