No plans for the 4th of July? Come on out to Macky’s and let loose. This Wednesday July 4th, Macky’s is kicking off its new Reggae night. All summer Macky’s will be featuring live entertainment by the Kaleb Brown Band every Wednesday night with the exception of 2 nights. The fun doesn’t stop there! Macky’s will also be having great drink specials including, 16oz Red Stripe Jamaican beer for only $2.75, as well as $4.00 Bacardi drinks. Macky’s has an amazing nightlife, one of the best in OC. On Tuesday nights Macky’s hosts its famous theme parties. This Tuesday night in celebration of July 4th, the theme will be Red, White, and Blue. Come on out and do your best Captain America impersonation. Macky’s also hosts its little black dress night every Thursday night. Ladies who wear a little black dress after 6pm will receive ½ off cocktails.
Macky’s hopes its Reggae Nights will be as popular as its other nightly events. Macky’s General Manager told us that he incorporated Reggae Night into the lineup of events, in hopes to bring in a new crowd of people. In the past live music was only played on Sundays with a steel drum band, but in efforts of reaching a new crowd Macky’s was able to get the Kaleb Brown Band to play every Wednesday night! Who is Kaleb Brown you ask? Well Kaleb is a local to Ocean City. His music can be classified as reggae but with a few elements of rock and hip-hop. The Kaleb Brown Band is sure to put you in that relaxed island mood. Brandi Mellinger from Ocean City Today once wrote this about Brown, saying, “His lyrics are soulful and from the heart. They tell a tale in a way everyone can understand. And his beats are spirited — infused with those of Jamaica, made popular in the late ’60s, and capable of bringing a smile to any listener’s face”. In the same article Kaleb was quoted saying that Ocean City is a big influnce in his music, and that his experiences from growing up give a vibe that comes out in his music. Kaleb has played all over the east coast and can usually be spotted with his band or playing in acoustic duo. Kaleb has played all over OC at many different venues which include Seacrets, Galaxy 66, The Globe Theatre as well as many other venues.
Although Macky’s is one of the best hot spots of OC, it can also hold it’s own in the restaurant category. Macky’s is actually a restaurant first then a nightlife hotspot second. To protect the restaurant side of Macky’s, dinner runs until 10pm, then the nighttime entertainment begins. This is done to ensure the nightlife of Macky’s doesn’t interfere with dinner. But even though dinner may be over at 10pm that doesn’t mean the kitchen is closed. Macky’s kitchen stays open with their lite fare menu from 10pm until 1am. Macky’s has some of the best dining in Ocean City. Just the other week Macky’s was in the Best Bites section of the Coconut Times. Macky’s is one of the premier spots in OC when it comes to waterfront dining, with their own private beach with white sand, the view alone is sure to keep you coming back again and again. Come out and enjoy Macky’s amazing view along with their great happy hour specials running from 3pm-6pm daily.

Bud/Bud Lt 16oz. Bottles

Macky’s is one of the best Restaurants/Bars in OC, and they love to give back to the community. One event that Macky’s is really proud of is its White Clam Open. This event is a fundraiser for MD coastal bays. It will be a catch and release event, and there will be prizes given out for the most bivalves caught, as well as the largest bivalve caught. There will be a time limit for the event, as well as a registration fee of only $5
. You will be provided with a bucket for the clams and an inner tube for the bucket. There will also be rakes for rent, and you will not be allowed to bring your own equipment. Come on out and show your support on Sunday August 12th, 2012 for the White Clam Open!
