HonkyTonk Bar & Grill is a relatively new country venue in Salem, where Duffy’s Hangar used to be on McGilchrist. So far, so good. They’ve been hosting country music every weekend for over a year now, and now they’ve opened up a recurring event on Thursdays, hosted by Country Wide’s lead guitarist, Tim Neff. Every Thursday he’ll be bringing a variety of guests. Thursday the 18th will be Jonny Jeseritz. There will also be food and drink specials. The music starts at 8pm, but if you show up a couple hours early, you can fit in a line dancin’ lesson. Giddyup. Free.
