Arts and Draughts Returns
Everyone’s favorite downtown event, Arts and Draughts, is back at the Columbia Museum of Art this Friday at 7 p.m. As usual, there will be music, art tours, food, games and everyone you know. This time around, the featured brewery is Goose Island so there will be tastings of 312 Urban Pale Ale as well 312 Urban Wheat Ale and Honker’s Ale on tap. But most excitingly, the guaranteed-to-please Goose Island vintage beers Matilda, Sofie and The Illinois will also be on tap. Tickets are $5 for CMA members and $8 for non-members, or you can join/renew your membership that night and get in for free.
Have a Margarita
Monday is Cinco De Mayo, so you can expect margarita and Dos Equis specials at every bar and longer-than-usual waits at Mexican restaurants. But if you’re looking for something a little different this year, check out Jake’s in Five Points, which will be hosting a Cinco De Mayo celebration that is also a fundraiser for the Columbia US Bartender’s Guild chapter and Pawmetto Lifeline. Some of Columbia’s best bartenders will be on hand to participate in a Margarita-Off. They’ll be shaking up their best margaritas for you to taste. There will also be margarita specials at the bar and a gourmet taco bar for $5. And since its part of Jake’s Yappy Hour, dogs are welcome too. Admission is a $5 donation that goes to Pawmetto Lifeline and to help pay the USBG dues for the best of the margarita shake-off participants. The event runs from 5 to 9 p.m.
Girls Pint Out Meets
Finally, a little heads up about the Girls Pint Out meeting next Wednesday, May 7, at 7 p.m. Lady beer lovers will meet at the Budweiser distribution center and learn about how beer gets from brewery to bar. There will also be a craft beer tasting, door prizes, and a blind taste test.
