Here are four tasty events to help you get over the mid-week hump:
Fat Jack's Supersubs is now carrying Little Man ice cream, and in honor of the new partnership will be giving away 1,000 pints of the stuff. One free pint will be included with the purchase of a sub (one per order) while supplies last. And after that, all locations of the sub shop will have Little Man ice cream available for both in-store and delivery orders.
Living the Dream Brewing Company is hosting a fundraiser from 6 to 8 p.m. tonight to benefit the National Sports Center for the Disabled. The brewery will hold a silent auction with items from Alamo Drafthouse, Starbucks, Rock Wood Fire Kitchen, Murdoch’s and more to bid on, and NSCD athletes and volunteers will be on hand to share their experiences and accomplishments in NSCD programs. During the event, 20 percent of all drink sales will be donated to the NSCD. For more information, visit the Facebook event page.
Riff Raff Brewing, based in Pagosa Springs, is releasing two beers from 6 to 8 p.m. today at Stout Street Social. In addition to the new beers (99 Schilling Scottish Ale and Weapons of Self Destruction Russian Imperial Stout), the evening will include food and giveaways. For more information, visit stoutstsocial.com.
Starting today, Burt’s Smokehouse BBQ in Centennial will take on the feel of a good old-fashioned Irish pub to celebrate Saint Patrick's Day. The restaurant is bringing in Irish musicians from 5 to 8 p.m. every Wednesday in March and offering specials on traditional Irish spirits. Today you can listen to The Stubby Shillelaghs while sipping $2 Guinness and $3.50 Jameson shots. For more information, visit bbqdenver.net.
