Hey Nonny plans free Thursday night concerts

Arlington Heights music venue and bistro Hey Nonny is planning free concerts on most Thursday nights between June 6 and Aug. 29. The concerts will begin at 8:30 p.m., following the free Sounds of Summer concerts in Harmony Park.

“The Sounds of Summer music series takes place right across the street from Hey Nonny,” said co-owner Chip Brooks. “They tend to wrap up around 8:30 p.m., so we thought it would be a great idea to host free concerts for anyone who wants to walk across the street and keep the party going.”

Concertgoers can pop into Hey Nonny after Sounds of Summer to enjoy a late dinner or small bites. Seating for the free Hey Nonny shows will be first-come, first-served, but Brooks also suggests making dinner reservations for outdoor dining during Sounds of Summer, then moving indoors to grab a cocktail while enjoying the 8:30 p.m. performance. “It’s the best of both worlds.”

“Chef Noe switches up the menu every season, so guests can enjoy awesome summer cocktails and fresh seasonal bites while listening to all the bands. Whether it’s an early dinner or drinks and apps for the later show, or both, there will be great food, drinks, and music all night long.”

The lineup for Hey Nonny’s free Summer Music Series includes:

• June 6: The Alright Maybes

• June 13: Nick Falco & The Road Hawks

• June 20: The Corner Boys

• June 27: Greg Jacks & Brother Help

• July 11: Anderlik, Otto & Church

• July 18: The Corner Boys

• July 25: The Rangers Band

• Aug. 1: Victor Brown Band

• Aug. 8: Albion West

• Aug. 15: Eric Pedigo and Bryan Ruby

• Aug. 29: The Pairs
