Beer: Not Just for Breakfast Anymore

Mmm. Beer. Everybody likes beer. Light beer. Dark beer. Red beer. Ales, lagers, stouts, and pilsners. It has so many uses. If you get a promotion at work, your friends buy you a beer. If you get fired at work, your friends buy you a beer. Rinsing your hair with beer will make it super shiny, or so we hear, since we’ve never been willing to sacrifice the beer to find out. So what better way to mark the anniversary of Roxy’s Pub than with beer? About the only time you can’t celebrate with beer is at an AA party, and well, this occasion will not be marking anyone’s first year of sobriety. At this momentous event — celebrating the entire pub — instead of getting your one-year chip, you’ll be getting a gift in the form of a commemorative glass to drink beer samples from all night long. So a round or two simply will not do. No, no. This calls for as many refills as you can manage from 7 to 10 p.m. at Roxy’s Second Annual Beerfest (309 Clematis St., West Palm Beach). Tickets are available for $20 in advance at roxyspub.com. Call 561-296-7699.

Rebecca McBane is the arts and culture/food editor for New Times Broward-Palm Beach. She began her journalism career at the Sun Sentinel's community newspaper offshoot, Forum Publishing Group, where she worked as the editorial assistant and wrote monthly features as well as the weekly library and literature column, "Shelf Life." After a brief stint bumming around London's East End (for no conceivable reason, according to her poor mother), she returned to real life and South Florida to start at New Times as the editorial assistant in 2009. A native Floridian, Rebecca avoids the sun and beach at all costs and can most often be found in a well-air-conditioned space with the glow of a laptop on her face.
