BEER IN HEADLIGHTS

Come for Beer, Stay for Pumpkin Pizza

The BeerHoptacular is nothing more than an excuse for you to walk around and sample an inappropriate amount of beer from nearly 70 small-batch producers. Well, there’s also ribs, tamales and Dimo’s Pizza offering its pumpkin pie dessert pizza. So it’s also an excuse to try that stuff.

DUSEK’S AND BALANCES

Kentucky Fried Lobster and Punk

Dusek’s and Punch House’s first-anniversary soiree starts with Kentucky fried lobster and a beer. Then it heads upstairs to Thalia Hall for a gratis live show from LA punkers No Age. Then it ends with probably some punch, which you had to see coming.
