We’re happy to pass on the many events—of both the victual and the libation variety—happening in this month of February.

Thursday, Feb. 7th: King’s Row is hosting Anchor Brewers & Distillers. They describe an evening of special cocktails, 5 Anchor taps, 3 Anchor spirits, and “Anchor-inspired” food, whatever that may be. At 9 p.m., L.A.’s My Reggae Band will be onstage.

Tuesday, Feb. 12th: Happy Fat Tuesday!

A little background. According to History.com, Mardi Gras dates back to pagan celebrations of spring and fertility thousands of years ago. This included the “raucous” Roman festivals of Saturnalia and Lupercalia. When Christianity arrived in Rome, seeing that the task of abolishing these fêtes would be near impossible, religious leaders decided to adopt these “popular local traditions” by embracing them and folding them into the new faith. How accommodating!

Saturnalia

As a result, the excess and debauchery of the Mardi Gras season became a prelude to Lent.…Traditionally, in the days leading up to Lent, merrymakers would binge on all the meat, eggs, milk, and cheese that remained in their homes, preparing for several weeks of eating only fish and fasting. In France, the day before Ash Wednesday came to be known as Mardi Gras or “Fat Tuesday.” (History.com)

King’s Row will be celebrating Fat Tuesday with Abita Brewing Company, Louisiana’s “finest” craft brewer featuring Turbodog, Jockamo IPA, Vanilla Double Dog, Andygator, SOS, and Restoration Pale Ale. New Orleans-inspired food will be available for consumption, natch. Festivities begin at 5 p.m. When it ends is anyone’s guess (well, they close at midnight, so I guess that’s that).

Thursday, Feb. 14th: Anti-Valentine’s Day!

Tequila tasting with the classiest mixologist ever—Melaney Schmidt. Also, the tapping of Alesmith’s world famous brew, “My Bloody Valentine.” It’s a big, bad Red Ale with an absolutely wicked ABV of 6.66%.

Thursday, Feb. 28th: Blind Flight Night

King’s Row is bringing in the Belgians—domestic Belgian-style beers that is—and offering to teach you how to taste and evaluate beer “just like the beer judges do!” Of course, it shall be a blind taste test, but whoever guesses the producer of the majority of the “beers in flight” will win a prize. Class starts at 6:30 p.m. Discussion will include the history of IPA and what kind of influence it has on the Craft Beer industry today—be ready to take notes and expect a spot quiz! (Kidding.)
