Chicago Week in Beer, February 7-10

Chicago Week in Beer, February 7-10
A beer-centric Valentine from The Craft Beer Girl.

I have a lot of these to enter, and it’s late at night. Just noting that this year, the Super Bowl takes place the day before Valentine’s Day, which could throw some schedules off kilter. But then I’m seeing more “Galentine’s Day” events coming up this week. Yet another holiday made up by a popular TV show, after “Festivus.”

Good ideas: Heady Topper, Dark Lord, Side Project anything, Lost Abbey Isabelle Proximus (Izzy).
Bad idea: That beer you bought off our shelves 5 minutes before the event started.
Even worse idea: That beer you bought off the shelves at that big box liquor store a couple weeks ago (at least buy it local, jeez)!
Some other logistic notes:
1. Bottle shares will be held every second Monday from 6-9pm. They will be outdoors when possible and will be held at Off the Wall in the event of inclement weather.
2. If you’re planning to attend, please post what you’re bringing on the event page so we can limit duplicates and potentially build verticals/themes.
3. In the interest of time, we will only enter 1-2 beers per person in the official share. Folks are welcome to bring more but excess beers will only be opened after the formal part of the share is complete.
4. Attendees do not need a ticket to attend, though we may introduce limits later in the interest of space.
5. In the interest of organization and alcoholic liability, BotW staff will collect bottles at the start of the event and open/pour bottles in an orderly fashion. If you are overserved, BotW staff reserves the right to cut you off at any time–NO EXCEPTIONS.
6. When at all possible, please bring two beers of smaller format bottles so folks aren’t getting 0.65 oz of beer.

You love Karaoke. You want to be a robot. You want Vocoder Karaoke.
IBW and host John Barlow will be bringing you Vocoder Karaoke the 2nd Thursday of every month.
We take the ancient art of Karaoke and update it with an option to throw a robot voice effect onto your shifting key karaoke singing.
This event is free, it only costs you your ego, your reputation and your standing in civilized society.
