TONIGHT the Fort Sanders Yacht Club, AKA the beloved Barcade, will be having their four year anniversary party! It's hard to believe four year have passed already since this hole in the wall opened up and become our favorite place to have a low-key beer. The FSYC is still a secret to some, many people have no idea this dive bar lined with 25¢ throwback arcade games exists.

Zach Widgren is part of the OG Yacht Club Crew, and has helped them line their walls with local artists' work each month for First Friday. This has been a home base for Zach's art, too. It only seems appropriate for him to be displaying his work during the anniversary party. Alongside his paintings, local lovelies Katy Smith and Katie Moseley will be hanging their work as well.
Zach has stated this will be his last art show in Knoxville for now, as he wishes to focus entirely on his new project and book, By The Way The Bird Flies. In just a few days, he'll be relocating to New Orleans, so make sure you swing through to send him off and show him some love! Through his many art shows, events, and founding the almighty Fireproof Gallery, Zach has really helped the art scene evolve in Knoxville. Cheers, Widgren!
The Barcade rules. They have around 70 different beers, bottles and draft. There is a secret special from 4pm-midnight, and they will be screen printing shirts for their loyal deckhands and shipmates. Bring it!
