, a prominent bar, restaurant and music venue at the corner of Magnolia Woodside Avenues in Santee, announced they will be closing for business, with their last day on Sunday, August 12.
The venue is in a location notorious for changing hands and business names- Lacey J's had come into the spot just more than a year ago, and before that was the Wagon Wheel.
The venue will be featuring music and dance each night until closing. This was recently posted on Lacey J's Facebook page:
It is with a saddened heart that we announce Lacey J's last day of business will be Sunday, August 12th. Please come out and support us as you can.
Friday - JD has couples dance instruction at 6:30; The Cantina Renegades take the stage at 9p (swingin' blues, rock, great for dancing)
Saturday - Patricia will be hosting our dance instruction at 6:30, The Sundance Band takes stage at 8:30
Sunday - our final Benefit/Fundraiser starts at 2p with Tunes for Tots, and at 6:30, Nathan James and The Hills take our final stage. Come out and help us say goodbye to all of our amazing guests, staff and Entertainment.
