Evening of grilling and fun at Rocky River Grill

The Rocky River Grill is coming up with new ways to liven up the nights in the Columbia Valley with different weeknight events happening at the restaurant.

The Rocky River Grill is coming up with new ways to liven up the nights in the Columbia Valley with different weeknight events happening at the restaurant.

Last summer the restaurant decided to build a beach volleyball court and ran games on two nights a week.

Now that winter has kicked in broomball is the sport which is ready to go.

The idea of building a place to play broomball came from one of the regulars at the restaurant and after working with the Max Helmer group the restaurant is now ready to play.

Justin Atterbury is one of the owners of the Rocky River Grill and feels that providing people with fun activities is an important feature to the restaurant.

“We want to give people more events at the restaurant. We want to make the restaurant a fun place to be,” Atterbury said.

Broomball is not the only new idea that is taking hold. Poker nights are also becoming more popular and a plan to host local jam nights for musicians is in the works.

The broomball nights are set up for Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Poker is being held on Mondays and Thursdays with the jam night hopefully kicking off soon every Wednesday.

For more information drop by the Rocky River Grill or call 250-342-8885.
