The “Ancira Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram 2017 Live Music Series at The County Line” that benefits the San Antonio Food Bank is back—for its 17th year— on Thursday nights. This popular live music series runs through August 28 at The County Line Bar-B-Q restaurant at 10101 IH-10 West (between the Wurzbach and Huebner Road exits, near the Colonnade).
Full seating and dining is available on the patio beginning each concert night at 6 p.m. through the end of the concert at 9:30 p.m. Happy hour will run inside and outside of the restaurant, from 3 to 9:30 p.m. on concert days.
The music series is free. However, all who attend are asked to make a food or monetary donation to the San Antonio Food Bank. Since the series started in 2001, it has funded 774,679 meals because of the $94,278.50 and 48,804 pounds of food donated to the Food Bank by County Line concert-goers. In 2015, the County Line was recognized by the San Antonio Food Bank for raising enough food to feed over 1 million people since the series start.

Cooper, President and CEO of the San Antonio Food Bank.
