Looking to get a jumpstart to the Easter weekend? If so, then let the Funky Buddha Lounge in Boca Raton whet your appetite for Easter candy in the way only the Buddha can: with beer and desserts.
Today, April 17th at 7pm, the Lounge will be tapping an assortment of 21 and over goodness that will include such delectables as Don't Tell Reese Peanut Butter and Chocolate Brown Ale (a personal favorite), Blueberry Cobbler, Carrot Cake Wheat, Whiskey Barrel Muy Bonita, and Rice Crispies Blonde (It's amazing how much this one tastes like a rice crispies treat.).
The event goes on all night, until 2 am, but the kegs are limited -- so get what you can while it lasts.
If that wasn't enough, a few dessert options have been lined up for those willing to trend more towards the diabeetus: make your beer a beer float with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or get down on the Brownie Blowout, a brownie a la mode with a layer of Don't Tell Reese topped with chocolate and caramel sauce. Or even go crazy and ask for a half and half mix of any of the beers. Rice Crispies Carrot Cake? Why not. Peanut Butter Chocolate Blueberry Cobbler? Hey, it could happen.
In typical Buddha fashion, live music from The Loopholes will grace the airwaves from 8 to midnight, and there is no cover.
The Funky Buddha Lounge is located at 2621 N. Federal Hwy in Boca Raton. Call (561) 368-4643 for more information.
