Happy New Year!
My picks for the week:
Feeling like a cocktail?
Go to Esquire Tavern and get great (like, really great) deals on cocktails while helping one of its employees train for a mixing contest in Dallas!
Feeling more like beer?
Celebrate Branchline Brewing Co.’s anniversary on Friday and Saturday. **Branchline rescheduled this event for Jan 16-17, due to the nasty weather we’re expecting this weekend.**
Don’t want any of that? That’s cool!
