Valentine's Day can really suck. Whether you're celebrating by yourself or with someone special, it's one of those holidays that tends to bring on the pressure. If you're single, you probably couldn't feel more alone. If you're a couple, you probably feel like you have to pull out all the stops.
The Sybarite Pig
wants to help you de-stress with some Valentine's Day focused events. If you're single, the bar is hosting a kind of share the love night tonight. If you're a couple, it's featuring a relaxed craft beer dinner.
For all the single ladies -- and men - -the spot is holding a singles night, tonight. With an extended happy hour until 9:00pm, anyone who buys a beer for a total stranger gets 10% off their entire tab. According to the Sybarite Pig's Head Pig, Daniel Naumko, "The beer for a stranger idea kind of just happened. We thought it would be a good way to encourage people to mingle."
For all the couples, or singles beer-lovers, the restaurant is hosting a Valentine's Day Craft Beer dinner. Thirty five bucks a per person (plus tax and tip) gets diners a three-course meal paired with beer. The pairings include a San Marzano tomato cream matched to Cigar City Brewing Florida Cracker, lamb orzo with the Bruery Rugbrod, and a toasted coconut macadamia brownie next to Samuel Smith Organic Chocolate Stout.
The single event and the Valentine's Day dinner are both a part of the spot's Romance event series. The series is all about showing the love by sharing. After the holidays, the place intends to host a Steak and BJ night--no, not that kind of BJ. The "BJ" stands for "bottle jam," a bottle share event for beer geeks. Twenty five bucks and a large bottle of beer entitles guests to steak and potatoes, and samples of other diners' beer. What could possibly be more romantic than that?
