French Broad beer dinner @ Flying Saucer Thursday, February 11

For the past week, I’ve heard rumors of an upcoming beer dinner at the Flying Saucer.  Last night I got the details.

Drew Barton, who worked at the Saucer years ago, then left to become a brew master, will present 8 of the beers from his brewery, French Broad.  The beers will be served with a 4-course dinner.  $25 for UFO members, $30 for non-members.  $25 to sample 8 beers, and you get to eat, too?  That’s a pretty good deal.

It’s been 3 years since they had their last beer dinner and I’ve been waiting for another one.  The last time they did one, they really hit a home run with the food.  Can’t wait.

Attn whichever manager is working night shift this Tuesday:  Expect to be pestered by the Nuh-Uh Girl asking, “What kind of food are you having?” She’ll probably hint around that she’d like to come to the dinner for free too.

All right, one more post and then it’ll be time to get Sunday Fun Day started…
