Karneval

During Karneval, the stanges in Cologne’s legendary Kölsch halls never run dry. Masquerading revelers party the night away while teams of Köbes keep the beer flowing as they diligently refill cup after cup. On February 23rd, visit the DTR taproom for a glimpse into Kölsch Karneval. For $25, guests receive a souvenir stange (Kölsch glass originally $7) and five refills. Additional stanges can be purchased for $5, and Kölsch is only $4/pour for the whole night! Of course, no Karneval would be complete without traditional German music and food, and we have you covered with a killer Oompa band and a full smorgasbord of good eats.

Music will be provided by TUBAFRAU HOFBRÄU BAND

Sh!t-faced Shakespeare: The Taming of the Shrew @The Rockwell / BOS

We Magnificent Bastards are at it again! We shall bring you The Taming of the Shrew in all of its splendor and glory as only we know how — a little bit drunk.

Fans of Drunk History and all its slurred education will fall over laughing at Shit-Faced Shakespeare®, which combines an entirely serious Shakespeare play with an entirely inebriated cast member. For the last seven years, Shit-Faced Shakespeare® has been performed in the darkest corners and diviest bars in the U.K. and the U.S. Side-splitting, raucous and completely unpredictable, the show is fresh off sell-out runs at the Edinburgh and Brighton Fringe Festivals, London’s West End, and in four cities in the states, where cast members drunkenly sing Zayn and occasionally (accidentally, of course) bare a nipple or two. Brush up on your Bard knowledge, and head over to The Rockwell for the latest installment because this is Shakespeare as you never knew you wanted to see him before! Remember to enjoy Shakespeare responsibly.

NOTE: Bar + Doors open 45 minutes prior to curtain. Times may vary! Please check your tickets for start times.

I’ll Run, You Toss’: Meagan’s Marathon Fundraiser for Team Eye and Ear

I may have to run 26.2 in April, but to help me get there all you have to do is hit 21. That’s right: It’s corn hole time.

Come have a beer and play for the glory (and a pretty cool prize) at a corn hole tournament to help me reach my $10,000 fundraising goal to benefit Team Eye and Ear.

I’m tackling this year’s Boston Marathon in honor of my cousin’s son, William David Bowles, who is deaf. About 2 to 3 out of every 1,000 children in the United States are born with a detectable level of hearing loss in one or both ears. Most people living with hearing loss can benefit from early identification and intervention, and appropriate management. Will benefited from early detection and early intervention, and he can now get the help he needs to develop at a similar pace to a hearing child.

About the tournment: Your ticket into will get you in the tournament and include your first beer of the night. While at the brewery, you can also try your luck at winning a variety of raffle prizes like tickets to your favorite Boston sporting games, a night on the town in Boston, giftcards to your favorite fitness classes, and more.

If you have a specific corn hole partner in mind, be sure to specify by emailing meagan.mcginnes@gmail.com. If not, don’t worry! Sign up and we’ll assign you a teammate. Registration at the door will also be available.
