As the guitarist for the red dirt rock band Cross Canadian Ragweed, Grady Cross saw the inside of a lot of bars and music venues.

So when the band split last fall, he tapped into that expertise to open his own: Grady's 66 Pub, which opened Jan. 1 at 444 W Main in Yukon. With nothing but beer and music on the menu, he's using the venue to stay connected to the music scene yet remain closer to home.
