Yes, it’s a slow news day. And, yes, we’re feeling kind of sluggish over here in the D Magazine offices. Getting owned in Scrabble one too many times on New Year’s can do that to you. Plus, it’s Humpity Hump Day. I know it seems far, far away, but in four weeks, it’ll be another Hump Day on Wednesday, January 30, at The Libertine Bar. Here’s a really good reason to drink five different Saint Arnold beers right after work. Eat, drink, and make merry.
The dinner-beer-fest begins at 7 p.m. on January 30 inside The Libertine Bar on Greenville Ave. To RSVP, call 214-824-7900.
