The venerable and beloved Latona Pub turns 29 this month. She still looks great for her age, don’t you think? In a world where businesses come and go with the changing of the seasons, one thing endures: Latona Pub.
On Saturday, August 20th they’ll celebrate the birthday by firing up the BBQ and tapping into a bunch of casks from local breweries. More info about that event, and other stuff happening a Latona Pub this month can be found in the message below.
First up, we’ve got our “Fort George Deconstructed 3-Way” event on Wednesday, August 10th at 6:30pm. Please note again that, due to forces outside of my control, the date has changed to August 10th. In case you’re not in the know, we’ll have Fort George’s collaboration 3-Way IPA on tap alongside offerings from their co-conspirators, Melvin Brewing and Barley Brown’s. It’s a fun way to try a little bit of everything that went into the collaboration, and a portion of the evening’s proceeds will go to the Roosevelt High School band, so come early and drink merrily (and responsibly).
Our Summer Beer Series continues on Monday, August 15th, when Ashtown Brewing will be releasing a Citra Pale brewed specially for the three pubs. Join us for dinner in the loft with head brewer Jarrett Skreen at 6:30pm, where you’ll be treated to three courses and four Ashtown schooners. Tickets are still available, only $40 per person!
Also, I don’t want speak out of turn, but I heard there might be brisket. Brisket, folks.
On the music front, our weekly Jazz Happy Hour roars on all month led by bassist Phil Sparks and his rotating cast of musicians, every Friday from 5pm-7pm. Things tend to turn up around 5pm, so get in early so you can score a seat at the bar. Also, the Wildhares continue their Latona residency at 7pm on Sunday, August 14th and again on August 28th, so come on in for dinner and a night of bluegrass.
Finally, the Latona turns 29 years old on Saturday, August 20th. We’ll be firing up the BBQ and celebrating in style with casks from local breweries like Georgetown, Holy Mountain, Naked City, and Stoup. The exact time is still to be determined and I’ll nail down more details as we get closer, but I expect it’s going to be an all-day soirée, and I’m really looking forward to seeing you there.
Soak that in for a second and say it slowly with me—29 years. That’s amazing for any business, but even more so when the place becomes a neighborhood fixture. So much of that is because you made the Latona your home away from home, and I’m sure that you’re as honored as I am to be part of the history. We’re happy and fortunate to call you all friends.
