POURS OF LIKE AN ARROW BLACKBERRY ALE
Wednesday, February 22 | 5:30pm | Hop City Craft Beer & Wine (Krog Street Market location)
Maybe FREE BEER is all we need to say about this event, but we’d like to sound a bit more poetic. Join the Asheville Brewing Company and southern rock band Blackberry Smoke at Hop City for free beer – for a good cause! This freedom-inspired ale is on the house all night, all to raise funds for the Shepherd’s Center SHARE Military Initiative, which is dedicated to the treatment of veterans suffering from brain injuries and PTSD. This is a free event, with free beer, benefitting a great cause, so we’ll see you there! Call (470) 355-2534 for more details.
3rd ANNUAL WAKE & BAKE OFF
Wednesday, February 22 | 7:30-10:30pm | North Highland Pub
Every year, Terrapin beer hosts its Wake & Bake Off competition, where people are encouraged to bake with their beers. Well, this Wednesday at 7:30pm, these beer-a-licious creations will be available for all to taste. Can we guarantee that everything will please your palate? Nope. But we can promise some good times. Call (404) 522-4600 for more info.
BUTCHER BOOT CAMP
Saturday, February 25 | 10am | Pine Street Market
If you’ve ever watched Sylvester Stallone pound the bejeezus out of animal carcasses in Rocky and thought, ‘Hmmm, I might also one day like to butcher an animal carcass,’ then this event is for you. Discover the art of butchering in this 3-hour class, designed to teach in-depth, hands-on butchering techniques. This is a small class, promising plenty of 1-on-1 time with your teachers.

GIRL SCOUT COOKIES & BEER
Saturday, February 25 | 1-4pm | Second Self Beer Company
Wine & cheese. Pizza & wings. Girl Scout cookies & beer. They just go together, and at this Second Self Beer Company event, you’ll get to pair your favorite Girl Scout cookies with one of the city’s best craft breweries. Event cost is $12, which includes a souvenir pint glass, sample tokens, and lots and lots of Girl Scout cookies. Call (678) 916-8035 to grab your ticket.
NATIONAL MARGARITA DAY CELEBRATION
Sunday, February 26 | 12 noon | Tin Lizzy’s Cantina
National Margarita Day is actually on Wednesday 2/22, but Lizzy drank too many margs and forgot. So they’re celebrating everyone’s favorite cocktail ALL week! Grab a 24-ounce margarita for only $10, served in a commemorative flask (that you can keep!) and poured over ice right at your table. This celebration is taking place at all 13 Tin Lizzy’s locations in Georgia and South Carolina! Call you local Tin Lizzy’s spot for more info.
