Chicago Craft Beer Weekend, February 9-11
Update: Due to the humongous snowfall dumping on the Chicago area, I have already been notified that one event is bing moved to next Friday, while others may be closed or cancelled.I don't have resources to run a Emergency bar Closing service (although that would be awesome), so please call ahead to any venue you might be planning to visit this weekend.
This weekend starts beer stuff related to Valentine's Day and Mardi Gras in Chicago. Additionally, next Saturday is the Cider Summit at Navy Pier. Tickets are already sold out, but there will be cider-type events going on through the week. I'll try to get next week's busy calendar posted here shortly...

Chicago Beer Lovers' New Years Weekend

Chicago Beer Lovers' New Years Weekend
Time to put up my early warning about upcoming New Year's Eve parties, and other beery events for the weekend, plus places to recover on New Year's Day. I try to focus on establishments that would clearly have some beer as part of the package, or just trust that my usual beer oases will still have the taps running while champagne is pouring all around. I am continually adding new events as I find them, so be sure to check back again. And get those reservations in early! It looks like the schedule for the Friday and Saturday before NYE may be a little light, but I keep finding more events closer to the day of...

It's time for "12 Beers of Christmas" promotions, and more strong dark beers for the holidays! And by the way, we here at the ChicagoNow community are saying goodbye to Jimmy Greenfield, our Community Manager, which means—well, I'd say "boss" but that implies that this is a job, which it's not. But Jimmy has been the coordinator between somewhere around 1,500 bloggers and whatever part of the Tribune Co. or "tronc" manages this blog portal. Jimmy was with "CN" since it fired up in 2009. I joined in 2010 after disappointing performance with another, long-extinct blog portal, and Jimmy has been handy with advice and ideas, some of which I did not bother with: he suggested my Beer Events pages should just be of selected highlights, I went and worked out how to program it to be dynamic. And he's also encouraged us all in learning our way around WordPress as it was becoming the de facto standard in blogging and site-building. Adios, Jimmy!...
