Red, White and Brews festivities are downstairs at the center, featuring a honky-tonk vibe, great music, and a special Veterans Day inspired craft brew by Nansemond Brewing Station.

Suffolk Center’s new neighbor Da’lish Restaurant will have its signature smokehouse grub available for purchase.

The Cool Tones deliver classic rock, with crowd favorites by Van Morrison and Steely Dan. Tim Daniel said the band’s favorite song to perform is Neil Young’s classic “Cinnamon Girl.” He added that they are excited to be playing in honor of veterans.

Stolen delivers its acoustic everything style. Patrons will love hearing favorites by Tom Petty, Johnny Cash and Jimmy Buffet. Win Winslow shared that the band’s favorite song is Jamey Johnson’s “In Color,” but no show would be complete without the Zac Brown Band’s “Chicken Fried.”
