Of course you do, right? I mean, who wouldn’t want to? Nugget Nectar is one of those cultish beers that super-nerds get all jazzed over, and on Wednesday, February 1, the guys who make it–Chris and John Trogner of Troegs–and author Josh Bernstein will be at Standard Tap for a small, intimate gathering that is all about the Nugget Nectar.
Here’s the catch, though. This event is going to be small. It’s limited to 40 seats. So if you’re thinking that this is exactly the kind of thing you want to do on a Wednesday night, then you should probably make your reservations now.
But before you do that…
Over at the news desk, they’re telling the tale today of Eric Wagner, veteran sous chef at Standard Tap in NoLibs, who took to the streets to defend the peace and quiet of his customers’ Sunday brunch this past weekend–doing battle against an evil car alarm with the best weapon at his disposal.
Post-It Notes. Lots and lots of Post-It Notes.
When was the last time you sat down and wrote a real letter to someone, on paper, and mailed it to them? I can guess that it’s been a while—at least it has been for me.
Maybe now is the time to sit down with a pen and paper to catch up with an old friend, see how Grandma is doing, or just write to yourself about something that’s been on your mind. Even better, have a little beer by your side.
Every Tuesday in March at Standard Tap, you can do just that: drink beer and write a letter. From 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., Yards Brewing Company is presenting Pub Letters, a special event that will provide free stamps and stationary to anyone who has something they want—or need—to say. And hey, maybe a little beer will get your creative juices going or give you that liquid courage you need before confessing your love to someone (don’t forget to proofread!).
