The Westside Bar was a favorite spot for live music in Central Minnesota. We have seen many local and regional bands play on the stage at the Westy. I was there on February 22nd when the local band Lolah was playing. It was the same night we were also watching the Brainerd Little Falls girls in their first state tournament game on the many TVs.
