On tap this weekend: Real beer, real food, real pub, good cause at Argyll

Argyll Public House, Robert Thompson's swanky gastropub at 2700 East Third Avenue, is hosting a service industry night from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. on Saturday, August 1 to benefit the Colorado Autism Society.

If you work in the restaurant biz and have the cred to prove it -- "Bring a pay stub, come in your black and whites or bring a business card from your restaurant," recommends Thompson -- then for $5, the minimum door donation to support the Autism Society, you'll get "real beer like Tetley's English Ale, Murphy's Stout, Carlsberg Lager, Deschutes Porter and Full Sail Pale Ale," plus plenty of Celtic-inspired pub food like fish-and-chips, Scotch eggs and fried chicken -- Celtic style.

But while the "real beer" and free food is just for those employed in the restaurant world, it so happens that Thompson is also introducing a late-night happy hour to coincide with the benefit, which means that between 10 p.m. and midnight this Saturday night and every night thereafter, the price of all drinks and late-night pub menu dishes are slashed by 25 percent. "The beauty of being a gastropub is that we can serve our modern, gourmet Celtic cooking all night long in a semi-formal setting and convert on a dime to a hard-drinking pub after 10 p.m," explains Thompson.

In other words, every day is an alcoholiday. Cheers.
