I love me some BBQ and Mac ‘n Cheese when it’s all wintery outside. I also really like Joel Paterson, a local jazz and blues and hOnky tonk rockabilly guitarist. This Friday they are together in one place… and probably rocking some bluesy holiday tunes as well. Care to join in?

Band starts at 7:30pm so let’s shoot for a 7pm start. They don’t take reservations but we’ll make it work. Please let me know by noon Friday so we know to expect you.

That’s right, I chose WhirlyBall for Restaurant Club, if you got a problem with that, best get behind a bumper car and try to crash into me while throwing a ball in a hoop thus settling things like normal human beings.

To make things more interesting, they’re doing a release of all the 2017 Bourbon County variants on draft and if there’s anything better than riding around in bumper cars, it’s doing it with a few 14% ABV beers under your belt. So come eat some bar food, play some games, and drink some world class beers. I have a reservation for 8 at 6pm (BCBS taps at 7pm) so let me know by WEDNESDAY at 3:00PM so I can adjust accordingly before I eat a bunch of turkey and fall asleep.

**If you’re interested in playing games, please also let me know as most of their games require reservations.**

Apologies for the late send – if you make it tomorrow we will tell you all about it our week!

Anyhow, this restaurant was chosen in 2009 but is a great far northside gem serving traditional tapas since at least 2009.

Let me know by tonight if you can make it so I can ensure a reservation!
