A Socially Distanced The Empire Strikes Back Beer Tasting

July 11

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 12:00 am, repeating until July 12, 2020 12:00 am


First things first, we can do it!! We can have a party, and you can stay apart!!

Here’s what will be different.

MASKS!!: The whole staff will be wearing them the entire time, so we’ll need you to wear them any time that you are not seated. When you are seated in the bar area, or auditorium, feel free to lower your mask, if you so choose. Butts up, masks up. This is for our safety and yours. And non-negotiable. If you stop reading here, we can’t wait to see you when things change. #science

SEATING: All tickets come with assigned seating, and the ticketing app will automatically add a 3 seat gap to the next group. Groups will be seated by ticket purchase. What that means is: if you purchase 1 ticket, you will be seated with 3 empty seats on either side of you. If you want to sit with people–either those you have been quarantining with or your friends–that’s totally cool, but you’ll need to purchase those tickets in the same transaction. The “It’s cool, we want to sit together” doesn’t work anymore unless you purchased them in the same transaction. These are now assigned seats. (Just like those big theater chains that shall not be named and that we hope to never copy again.) Put your Venmo to use.

BAR SERVICE: We can allow you to come to the bar to purchase your own beverages. However, your mask must be up at all times, and you must fight the urge to take a sip until you are seated. I know. Brutal. Once again, we’ll have markings on the ground so the lines can stay 6 feet apart.

We have missed you all so much that I promise that we will be our most pleasant selves when we are enforcing these rules, but these are the rules. If you aren’t willing to cooperate, PLEASE don’t purchase a ticket.

Here’s what will be the same.

Tickets are $40 and include: A custom pint glass, raffle prizes, 10 beer samples, funny stuff and of course a showing of The Empire Strikes Back. Hosted by Andy Wuelfing, the tasting will begin at 12pm SHARP followed by The Empire Strikes Back precisely at 2ish. 21 and over only and no refunds unless the event is cancelled.
