Happy Friday Everybody,
How come when you have a shortened week it always seems to go sooooo much slower? Well it's the weekend now so, let's see what's happenin' this Friday night!
It's a beer lover's dream.....and it's well worth the money (and it's for a great cause)! Join WYES at the New Orleans Fairgrounds (1751 Gentilly Blvd.) to enjoy a relaxed evening of beer tasting with a limited number of guests during the WYES Private Beer Sampling. In honor of the craft of American and European brewers, this event will feature the hardest to find craft brewed beers, specially made cask and home brewed beers, as well as special one-off beers from local breweries. Guests will be able to talk one-on-one with brewers, home brewers, and other beer industry members, as well as talk amongst fellow beer connoisseurs. Tasting tickets are $50 which also includes lip-smacking food by Crescent Pie and Sausage. Tickets to Friday's event can only be purchased by calling (504) 486-5511.
