Summer time is here and boy have we been busy!
Summer time is here and boy have we been busy!
Awwwww……the moment all Floridians have been waiting for…..Spring!!!
It means less traffic, less waiting in lines at the store, less people taking up valuable beach space!!!! I love it!! There’s a lot more elbow room at the bar too!!!
We plan some of our best events over the Spring and Summer months and now that you have all this extra time on your hands that you’re not using up waiting for people to figure out how a 4-way stops work, we have some ideas on how you can spend it!
Outside of bringing you some of the most talented, rockin’ bands from the SWFL area all week long, we plan some of the biggest parties you can find around and we have some truly awesome events coming up in the next few months……but like any party, it’s not as cool if you friends aren’t there too…..so mark you calendars because these are going to be some kickass parties and we want to see your beautiful faces!!!
This Saturday, April 25th, we are hosting our Traditional Halfway to Fantasy Fest Extravaganza with Bobby James providing the tunes during the day and Model Citisin rockin’ the roof off at night!!! We’ll have a professional artist on hand for FREE Body Painting for the Ladies (sorry guys, you’re on your own, lol) and more fun than you can shake your stick at!!
For the month of May, we have another awesome line-up of fun starting with Cinco de Mayo on Tuesday, May 5th with THREE 2-4-1 Happy Hours throughout the day and 25¢ Tacos til 10pm, Lemongrass performing at 8:30 and the best damn fiesta you’ll find on The Cape!
One of the most amazing things we do here besides partying hard, and something we’re pretty proud of, is giving back to the community. We are honored to spend EVERY Memorial Day hosting our charity event for Veterans and/or Military men and women. This year we are working hard for Miles of Smiles, an organization that raises awareness for PTSD and offers equine therapy and other services to those men and women who have served so selflessly for us all!!
This is one of the biggest events of the year and we do it up BIG for these heroes!!
So, on Memorial Day, Monday, May 25th the theme is a LUAU!! Grab your grass skirt, coconut bra and your lei……(or get lei’d here) and limbo yourself to The Dek for the a day and night of Live Entertainment and fun like you’ve never seen!! We’re BBQ-ing everything in sight, having raffles all day long, a Silent Auction with awesome packages supplied by area businesses and vendors will take place and a 50/50 auction will happen in the evening!! Live Acoustic Music starts at 3pm and DJ KENNEY will be hosting Karaoke and playing whatever you want to hear at night…….he’s no Don Ho, but he’ll do!
So don’t BBQ in the backyard when you can be here for one of the BEST parties of the year and all for an awesome cause!!! YOU WILL NOT WANT TO MISS IT!!
Last year, we had our first ABC Party……..that’s ANYTHING BUT CLOTHES. So get creative and crazy!! FREE Body Painting will be provided for this event as well, with prizes for the most creative get-ups…..but NO CLOTHES!! if you missed it last year……WOW! Well….let’s just say, the people watching is spectacular! It’s happening Saturday, June 20th!!
So much coming up this summer and I don’t want to give too much away but I’ll leave ya with three words……FOURTH. OF. JULY.
Just keep checking the website, Facebook or Twitter for updates because around here, we just keep striving to be the best and that means the best parties, with the best Live Entertainment, with the best people!! And we’re hoping to make this the BEST YEAR YET!!!

On Christmas Day, again we will have our regular STEAK NIGHT menu available, and again will be offering an additional Christmas meal on the menu! If you already had a Christmas meal for lunch, you might want to enjoy a nice Steak Dinner that night, or you can have a second helping of traditional Christmas goodies!

Never fear, though, Dekheads – we have plenty more planned for you in the coming weeks!
We know that summertime is typically a bit rougher financially than season months around here. And we also know that despite that, people still gotta drink, right?! So, we’ve devised a plan that will make all your worries disappear! Here’s what you do:
#1 – Get your butt to The Dek.
#2 – order any Budweiser product (Bud, Bud Light, Ultra, Becks, Corona, etc.)
#3 – Get your Raffle Ticket(s) from your bartender.
#4 – Be here the following Tuesday 6-9pm and listen for your name to be called
It’s as simple as that! If your name is drawn, you will win a bar tab right here at The Dek! Every single Tuesday from 6-9pm we will be giving away $500 in bar tabs!! That’s $2,000 each month, and $6,000 this summer!! How’s that for helpin’ keep your wallet full during off-season?! Win even ONE of our drawings, and you could drink FREE all summer (or, if you drink like me – one night lol!)
So, there you have it – the proof is in the pudding shot: Summertime + The Dek = Free Drinks & Good Times! For more information about this promotion as well as everything else we have going on at The Dek, make sure you check out our brand new YouTube page.. TheDekLive
For those of you who live here all year round – Summer means several things: mostly hot, HOT, rainy weather! But, don’t forget the good things about living down here year ’round – The snowbirds head back up north and clear the roads, leaving us with a commute that’s now half the time! Cost of living goes down! And, best of all, you get to stick around for our awesome events & promotions here @ The Dek! And, boy do we have a lot of ’em for ya! Well, what are you waiting for? Let’s get right into it:
Starting Wednesday, June 18th – every time you get a bucket, pitcher or import bottle that is a Budweiser product here @ The Dek, you will receive a ticket (or tickets!) to be entered in our weekly drawing… WE WILL BE GIVING AWAY $6,000 worth of bar tabs over the next 12 weeks! Every TUESDAY from 6-9pm we will draw one winner every half hour to win anything from a free drink up to a $300 gift certificate!! And we will do it EVERY week! $500 in bar tabs will be handed out every single Tuesday beginning next week – June 24th @ 6pm! YOU MUST BE PRESENT TO WIN – and trust me – you don’t want to be somewhere else when we draw your name – you could have won $300!!! This is just one of the many ways we’re going to be taking care of our regulars this summer! We also have tons of events planned over the next few months!
On Saturday June 21st we are having our FIRST EVER ABC party….no it’s not for kindergartners. The ABC stands for Anything But Clothes. We are going to be creative with costume here folks!!! Grab the plastic wrap, your living room drapes, duct tape….wait, that might hurt a little….yeah, maybe skip the duct tape. Anyways be creative and fun with your “cover-up” ideas. We are going to have an awesome entertainment line-up consisting of Bonham528, P.A. Trick (visiting from The Keys!), and the wonderful MT40! Also a special & rare appearance by Fuzz, a local band made up of Cape Coral’s finest!
One of the best things about summer and the one holiday we, as Americans, love is The Fourth of July. Barbeques, picnics, friends, family, beer and fireworks…doesn’t get much better than that. Unless, of course, you can bypass the cooking and mixing of drinks yourself and have our lovely Dek bartenders take care of serving you!! We’re going to cook out and party all day and night!!! We have even been granted, by the city, to use surrounding empty lots around The Dek for party overflow and tent set up!! We are super excited about this! Everyone will be partying and watching fireworks right from our own front yard! Live music both Friday & Saturday all night long featuring Breaking Through, S.O.R., 12 Stones, & Another Lost Year!
The Dek’s version of Santa Claus will be gracing us with his presence on Friday, July 25th for a CHRISTMAS IN JULY celebration! Christmas Gifts for everyone!!
It’s going to be one awesome party to the next awesome party around here all summer long! We hope everyone has a wonderful summer full of fun and that they’ll find a lot of fun to be had right here at THE DEK!!
Spring has arrived, and here @ The Dek, we think that is something to drink to (what isn’t?)! As if you needed another reason to party, here is a preview of what is to come over the next few months right here at your favorite five star dive bar!

There will be plenty of time to wear your fancy threads on New Year’s Eve, but for Xmas Eve, why not join us and hang out in your jammies??? It’s our 6th Annual Holiday Pajama Party – and this time, we are raising $$ to benefit our local homeless shelters! Bring a set of twin sheets to donate and get $5.00 off your bar tab, or try your luck in one of our awesome raffles, silent auctions, or 50/50 raffles! All Proceeds go directly to the Lee County Homeless Coalition and WE CARE, a local homeless shelter organization to help provide shelter for local families during and after the holidays!
We have tons of great items up for grabs in our raffles & silent auctions! Everything from salon services and restaurant/bar gift certificates to oil changes and toys for kids will be raffled off throughout the night!
After you do Christmas Eve dinner with the family, make sure you head out to The Dek to take part in this fabulous charity event! Merry Christmas!
Xmas Eve PJ Party Charity Event: 12/24 8pm-Midnight with DJ Kenney/Karaoke & more!
Here @ The Dek we want to promote local musicians! And, while we have live music 7 nights a week, we typically cater to the cover bands in the area when it comes to booking gigs. We feel that the local bands who write & play their own original music need a platform as well! So, we’ve collaborated with Paul L. Marshall Productions to bring you ORIGINAL MUSIC TUESDAYS beginning on Tuesday, September 24th @ 9:30pm! Each week we will feature a different local artist playing their original songs! On the THIRD Tuesday of each month, Mr. Paul Marshall is going to put on a Showcase featuring 4 different artists of a particular genre. Stay tuned for details & to find out who our first local artists will be!
If you’re one of the over 150,000 Cape Coral residents who have the pleasure of enjoying this beautiful weather during the summer months, then you know why we feel that you guys need a BREAK! So, during the month of September, Mondays at the Dek will be 2-for-1 on EVERYTHING (except buckets & pitchers)! Yes, that means WELLS, WINES, DRAFTS, BOTTLES, TOP SHELF, CALLS, and even SHOTS are 2 for the price of 1 every Monday from noon-6pm during the month of September!
This is just one more way that The Dek tries to take care of our local customers (and those of us who are stuck here during one of the hottest months of the year)!
Monday is the New Friday, so drink up & save more!!!
Thank you to all the businesses & individuals who helped make our Poker Run Charity Event a big success! With your help, we raised a total of $5,110 for the Betts family! Mr. Betts & his family are extremely grateful for your kindness! Check out our facebook page for more photos from the event!
The Dek will be hosting a Charity Poker Run on Saturday, August 24, 2013 to benefit Jeffrey Betts, who is the father of our bartender, Jenny Betts. He has recently been diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma Cancer and will be spending over a month in the hospital during which time his family will need some financial assistance to help cover their bills while he is recovering from his surgery. We want to do everything we can to help the Betts family during this tough time, so we will be holding a raffle & live auction at The Dek on Saturday, August 24th from 3-8pm (immediately following our Poker Run) to raise money for the family.
We have tons of items up for grabs in our raffle & live auction – Everyone is welcome to come check it out & try your luck (and skill) at winning some of these items! Items include spa services (mani/pedis, massage, hair cut & dye, etc.), bar & restaurant gift cards, oil changes & car detailing, gift baskets for everything from wine lovers to beach lovers, hotel stays, pet grooming, golfing, bowling, & anything else you can think of! If you would like to donate an item for us to raffle off, it would be greatly appreciated! You can contact Betty at 740-816-1199 or drop it off at The Dek anytime day or night! One of our staff members would be happy to write you up a receipt so you can claim the donation on your taxes!
It’s been a while, and that’s why I think it’s time to bring back THE DUNK TANK! That’s right – your favorite DEK BARTENDERS will be giving you the chance to DUNK them! Once everyone returns from the Poker Run, we will have a whole day of events planned for you! There will be delicious BBQ food served up, tons of great raffles, auctions, live music, & the chance to dunk your favorite (or least favorite) bartender!!!!!!! All proceeds will go directly to The Betts family, so it’s a win-win! There will also be a $1,000 cash raffle drawing where tickets are just $20/each and you have a chance at winning one of six $25 prizes or the grand prize of $1,000 cash! You don’t need to be present to win and you can purchase a ticket anytime between now and the drawing at The Dek – just ask your bartender or any staff member!
It’s going to be a great time for everyone, all for a great cause – COME HELP SUPPORT ONE OF OUR OWN! 100% of all donations will be donated to The Betts family. Please help support a local member of your community in their time of need!

Another St. Patty’s Day has passed….
Season is here & is in high gear! St. Patty’s Day weekend was AWESOME! Everyone had a great time Saturday Night with one of our best bands, MODEL CITISIN, taking the stage at 9:30pm. The green beer was flowing as were the $5 Car Bombs, $3 Jameson Shots, and $1 delicious pudding shots made by our manager, Jennifer’s sister. If you saw a chick running around snapping photos, that’s her! It was Brooke’s last night, since she’s now moved back up to Ohio to persue other opportunities…and Doug, Brandy, & Maishe were all decked out in their St. Pat’s outfits and IN THE WEEDS for the majority of the evening! Some local bagpipers graced us with their presence around 8:30pm – they were part of our “St. Patty’s Day Eve Crawl” with all of the bars in the area. At midnight, we enjoyed our “New Year’s” shot as usual, this time everyone got a free PUDDING SHOT – oatmeal cookie, strawberry cheesecake, pastachio, caramel apple…. they were all to die for!
Last call finally arrives, and the bar is still packed, so everyone ends up going home or to their perspective after-parties…. Then, by 10am Sunday morning, half of them are back again- whether they’ve come to pick up their vehicle that was left from the night before, or to get a jump start on the real St. Patty’s Day celebration with a $1.50 mimosa, screwdriver, bloody mary, or green draft! By noon, the place is jumpin’ again with The Rev. TEQUILA TOM tearing it up on the 6-string and singin’ his infamous original “The Dek Bar Bike Incident” which he wrote himself from his first-hand witness of the day when one of Cape Coral’s finest forgot to put their cruiser in park and it rolled into a line of motorcycles which incidently fell over knocking over one bike after another, prompting Tom to ask “5-0, don’t you know a bike from a domino?” The crowd loves him! The Reverend is in the house each & every Sunday 2-6pm and every week is just as fun as our St. Patty’s Day Celebration was!
Reggie, Diane, Krissy, & Brittney held their own as they were bombarded with orders for corn beef & cabbage, green beers, and Irish Car Bombs! Tequila Tom shared the stage with some friends, and although there weren’t enough bar stools to go around, no one seemed to mind! Please check out our facebook to see all of the photos from St. Pat’s weekend, but here’s a small preview!
