My husband thinks their senior breakfast is the best deal in town. If you want to stay somewhere else, there is a Holiday Inn Express about 2 miles away from Thunder Balley in Lincoln.

There are no Famous Celebrities like during the summer or fall. I am sure that they will have a great band on Friday night and Saturday night. As of right now they don't have anything posted.
