Here’s what this town has to offer word fanatics.
I’ll Drink to That
After appearing on the scene a few years back, I’ll Drink To That has emerged as one of the most fun-loving and energetic performance series, thanks to a sundry of entertainers and beer serving locales. IDTT features poetry, spoken word, comedy, music and more. Carlos Contreras, the host extraordinaire, welcomes performers from the area and the occasional out of stater if they have the chops. With a rotating group of artists, you never know who you’ll find sipping an IPA up on stage.
