’60s British Invasion cover band Jeffrey and the Pacemakers play Downtown Huey’s Sunday night at 8:30. They’ve also secured a date at the Cavern, the Brass Door’s underground performance space, on February 25. I’m told there are plans in the works for them to possibly play the REAL Cavern in Liverpool, where the Beatles were the house band 1961-63. Wouldn’t that be a dream come true?
Tonight is the first night you can enter to win the Fat Tire bike the Flying Saucer is giving away. Just buy a New Belgium Fat Tire pint to enter (make sure you ask for entry form).

If you’re looking for an excuse to come drink at the Saucer, there’s trivia tonight at 7:30 and 10.
It’s also trivia night with Kevin Cerrito at Ferraro’s Pizzeria and Pub. There’s a prize for best team name every week. Last week’s winning team name: “On a Scale from Casey Anthony to Jerry Sandusky, How Much Do You Like Kids?” Trivia starts at 8 PM, and there are $1 PBR and Rolling Rock draft specials.
It’s also trivia night at Silly Goose. Posted start time is 8 PM.
The Green Beetle debuts their spaghetti night tonight, with a regular-sized plate of spaghetti and meatballs for $5. If you want wine with dinner they’ll have bottles of merlot and pinot grigio for $12.
