During the On the Waterfront weekend, Brio owner Paul Sletten (at right in photo) offered patrons something a little different—an Urban Beach Party in the downtown River District with 28 tons of sand. The party, which ran Saturday-Sunday, Sept. 2-3, featured a Tiki Bar & Grill, margaritas, mojitos, ribs, chicken, shrimp and more along with live music both days. Performers included Steve Lindsay, Benney, The Braves, Carlos Cutter, Jason Medelhoff and Fat Elvis. Admission was free with an On the Waterfront button.’);
