Oak & Iron IV, 2/12, 6pm, at Jerry’s Sandwiches in Wicker Park

No, this isn’t for the newest Game of Thones. But this is metal and wood and swords and sorcery, mostly in the form of barrel-aged beer (and some movies and music to round out the scene). Tomorrow Jerry’s Sandwiches Wicker Park location taps some of the darkest, most evil beers they could find, and it is your knightly duty to vanquish these beasts. Do it for the dudes and damsels in distress. Do it to level up. Do it for the crown. Etc, etc.

The Mikkeller Running Club Chicago – 2/7 (@Northdown Cafe & Taproom)

Saturday, February 7th, join the newly formed Mikkeller Running Club for their inaugural run. The run starts at their “clubhouse,” the Northdown Cafe & Taproom. Route is TBD, but just a 5k to get us all warmed up.

Post-run, Northdown hosts the Club for a complimentary beer (don’t forget to tip your server/bartender, aka Designated Hydration Specialist).

Be sure to check out and purchase an official Mikkeller Running Club shirt to wear for the runs! (http://shop.mikkeller.dk/shop/beer/mikkeller-running-club-membership/)

The idea of the Mikkeller Running Club is to stay fit through running. That makes us capable of enjoying even more of the good life – which includes state of the art food and drinks.
