Who's hitting the dive bar tonight?👢

News 6 Now 4 p.m. newsletter -- 10/16/19

I'm not asking if you have plans to hang out at just any old dive bar on a random Wednesday night.

I'm asking if you were one of the lucky ones who got tickets to see country legend Garth Brooks tonight in Sanford. If you are, I hope you're reading this newsletter from the bar's parking lot, 'cause I hear that place may already be packed.

Country music not your thing? Stick around, there's plenty of other things we need to talk about.

Here's what's trending on ClickOrlando.com:

🤠 Blame it all on his roots

1997: Garth Brooks plays a free concert in New York's Central Park. In May of 1998, the New York Fire Department would officially announce the final attendance numbers at 980,000, making it the largest concert ever held in Central Park.

I don't really know if people even use the term "dive bar" anymore, but Garth Brooks still does. In fact, he's bringing his Dive Bar Tour to The Barn, a bar right here in Central Florida. Only a lucky few had the chance to win tickets to Wednesday night's concert. Yours truly was not one of them, so let me know if you need to borrow my boots. Find out how some lucky fans got their hands on some much-wanted tickets.
