Entertainment Weekly: Vanilla Ice throwing Fourth of July concert: ‘We didn’t have coronavirus’ in the ’90s. “The concert is titled the Independence Day Throwback Beach Party and it’s happening due to a legal loophole, the Austin Chronicle pointed out. The venue — Emerald Point Bar & Grill, located on the shores of Lake Travis — is technically a restaurant, even though it also has a large capacity outdoor general admission concert space. So fans don’t have to collaborate with or listen to current recommended coronavirus guidelines that seek to eliminate large crowds.”
