The ladies of Girls’ Pint Out will be getting up to more goodness Wednesday night with Paints and Pints at Palmetto Paint and Pour in Irmo at 7 p.m. These painting-with-your-friends-while-drinking-wine studios seem to be popping up all over these days, so why shouldn’t beer get some of that love? To bring out their brewed muses, the Girls’ Pint Out ladies will be holding a bottle-share as they paint. Everyone simply brings a 22-ounce bottle of a beer they want to share and pays $25 for the painting supplies. Interested ladies had better act quickly, though, because as of press time, there were only a couple of tickets left. Plus, you know, it’s Wednesday. Check out palmettopaintandpour.com for more info.
A Party at EdVenture
This is the second week in a row I’ve talked about how EdVenture isn’t just a place for kids to have fun — but when they plan something this unabashedly awesome, I just have to shout about it. This Thursday, Feb. 20, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., EdVenture After Dark presents Glow. Adults can roam the museum getting glow-in-the-dark manicures and body paint, creating light graffiti, eating pizza, dancing (yes, probably with glow sticks, you EDM-loving so-and-so), enjoying beer and wine and playing FRICKIN LASER TAG. I don’t normally all-caps anything in this column because hey, it’s serious (drinking) journalism, but c’mon. This is basically what you would get if you asked Barney Stinson to plan an event at a children’s museum. Drinking and laser tag! Tickets are $20 at edventure.org and your first two drinks are free. Sounds like a pretty great deal and the start of a night that will be legend — wait for it — ary!
Brewvival Is In High Demand
Finally, congrats to everyone who got tickets to Brewvival this Saturday in Charleston. This year’s festival sold out of tickets in only 69 days, so all you lucky sons of guns will be enjoying what has become a terrific South Carolina brewery celebration with all hands on deck showing off the best they have to offer. With the caveat that I’ve had none of these beers, my picks to be first in line to try would be River Dog’s Pappy Van Winkle Bourbon Barrel-Aged Quad, Quest’s Smoking Mirror Porter (with bacon and granny smith apples in cask), Holy Weed Imperial IPA (a collaboration between Holy City and Wicked Weed), Brewery 85’s Sour Session Batch (a first batch for the new brewery!) and Conquest’s Coffee Vanilla Brutus.
