Allagash mid-Atlantic sales manager Suzanne Woods has an area spanning from Philadelphia to DC. That means a lot of car time and recently, lots of Afro-Cuban, reggae, ska and calypso on Pandora. So tonight at 8 p.m., it is Bongogash at Varga Bar and eight great Allagash beers on tap.
Starting today Varga Bar is starting a new buck-a-shuck oyster happy hour. The varietals will change daily but the price will remain one dollar.
Dollar oyster happy hour runs Monday through Thursday, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Golden oldies icon Neil Sedaka spent much of his career sharing his sentiments with the world in the form of song and prose—and he was beloved because people could relate. When “Calendar Girl” hit #4 on the US Billboard Chart in 1961, it was clear that it was an anthem of which most of America could identify with, as it was a tune regarding the unavoidable affinity for the calendar girls.
Varga Bar is keeping the tradition alive this Wednesday with their annual Varga Girl Calendar Release Party. Starting at 9pm, poster-sized prints of each 2013 Varga Girl will adorn the walls, calendars will be sold for $20, and the girls will be there—for a meet and greet of sorts. 25% of all of the proceeds benefit the Liberty USO—the PA/NJ chapter. And as expected, there will, of course, be food and drink specials.
