Get out of the cold and into Nellie’s Tap Room at Taft’s Ale House for a tropical getaway.
Beach Night at Taft’s is a heated indoor party where you get a free lei and welcome pint when you walk in the door. Build a sand castle while you listen to music from the Queen City Silver Stars, or sip on cocktails like margaritas, mojitos and piña coladas.
Dare to wear a Hawaiian shirt; the best of the best will win a $50 gift card. In addition to beachy mixed drinks, there will be $3 cans of Taft’s Culebra Cut Coconut Brown Ale and $5 Nellie’s Key Lime Caribbean Ale to keep the heat turned up.
Only 40 or so tickets will be released, so if you miss the party itself, you can still head to Taft’s and listen at the stairwell for the sound of flip-flops and steel drums.
5 p.m. Thursday (Jan. 17). $10. Taft’s Ale House, 1429 Race St., Over-the-Rhine, taftsalehouse.com.
