Just letting you know that I survived the Irish madness last weekend and hope y’all found yourselves safe! With the ACC tournament last week I had soooooo much fun watching all the games. I’m definitely proud of the Pack for making it as far as they did; the Heels surprised me the most showing that they are a relatively good team-sorry still bitter over their last win over the Pack, and Duke, well I guess they were just resting up for the big NCAA tournament. But even with all the excitement of the games happening, it couldn’t top the High Holiday, that’s right St. Patrick’s Day. With the parade on Saturday it was fun to see everyone out and about in their finest of green. I loved looking out into the crowd and seeing crazy Guinness hats, flashing earrings, green pants, leprechaun eyebrows, and shamrock stickers everywhere. For a little while I almost wished I was Irish instead of Canadian, but then I remembered how awesome I am at hockey and how my poor liver would never survive, the Irish truly are gifted drinkers! It was like watching a marathon but instead of running everyone was downing pints and shots. Oh I almost forgot my favorite part of the entire weekend was seeing the Wake District Pipes and Drums perform both Saturday and Sunday. Did they ever know how to get a crowd started, and I have seen my fair share of performers on the Woody’s stage. Some of the ladies even jumped on stage with them and started doing one of my favorite moves…THE MOOSE! It was absolutely amazing! But unfortunately, the weekend is over but that doesn’t mean this weekend won’t be as much fun. With the NCAA going on we’ll have plenty of games to watch, with all the boys from the triangle playing Friday. I can’t wait to cheer them on and see how far my beloved Pack goes, hopefully further than any Ram or Blue Devil. In addition to the games, there’s a Lonerider event going on in Moore Square Saturday night from 5-11 pm. It should be exciting as we plan to have a number of new delicious brews for everyone to try out while hanging out around the Square. Also, Wednesday we’ll have our weekly keg tapping at 7pm where we’ll be featuring Ballast Point’s Longfin Lager for only $3.5, it truly is a deal. With all that is going on I hope everyone has recovered from the past crazy weekend and will stop by and see me this weekend sometime for more grand times. Until I see y’all again, all your secrets are safe with me.
Just dropping a line to make sure everyone is as excited as I am about the upcoming week. Not only is it St. Patrick’s Day, which I love because it’s one of the day’s of the year that I get to see almost everyone I know and make new friends. But it’s also the ACC Tournament! I’m so excited to see how the teams do and to finally, see whose going to the NCAA tournament and whose playing in the NIT games. I truly hope NCSU finds the luck of the Irish early on Thursday as they take on Virginia Tech. I feel pretty confident but you never know. As far as tobacco road basketball goes, last Saturday was heartbreaking. Not only did my beloved Wolfpack fall short to Florida State, I had to spend the rest of the night sulking around a bunch of Tarheel’s and Blue Devils. Blah. Good thing I always keep a box of kleenex close by to throw at them. With that I hope everyone has a great week and prepares for the madness of this weekend. Don’t forget to come see me sometime, we’ll have all the games on and great drink specials. Also, y’all don’t forget to sign up on facebook to our NCAA Tournament bracket to enter for a chance to win a $250 gift certificate. With that kind of loot you could buy enough shots to have a few of your friends bebopping around the bar also baseball season comes into full swing. But this old moose is getting well rested for tonight’s trivia and trashy trivia, I can’t wait to see y’all this weekend!
It’s Herman here reporting back from a long absence. You know February is the shortest month but whew do I feel as if I crammed in as much fun as I do every other long month! Between cheering for the Pack, the Canes, welcoming my beloved baseball season, listening to great live music, tapping delicious brews and saying goodbye to some of my favorites, and just generally enjoying everyone’s company I honestly haven’t even had time to write until now. I didn’t want y’all to think I had forgotten about you, even though I’ve been hanging around with most of you who follow my rantings. With February long gone I’ve happily welcomed March and am happier than a moose in the forest over spring! Although the weather’s been crazy that hasn’t stopped most of you from stopping by and seeing me regularly. Thanks to everyone who came out for First Friday, we had so much fun listening to Russ Thompson early and then Catching Fire Unplugged, a new band to the Woody’s stage. I was bebopping all night! If I missed you last weekend or any during February no worries we here at Woody’s have plenty going on in March, which is why they call it MARCH MADNESS! This week marks the end of college basketball’s regular season, which means next week begins the NCAA tournament, one of my favorite parts about being a staple here at Woody’s @ City Market is that I get to watch all the games. This Saturday I’m especially excited because it’s one of the biggest rivalries in the ACC, the Duke, Carolina match up! Also, speaking of basketball don’t forget to “Like” us on Facebook and enter your NCAA bracket for a chance to win a $250 gift certificate. Moreover, this Wednesday we’re tapping Great Divide Old Ruffian for $3.5, what a great deal. On Friday we’re hosting Skinny Bag Unplugged another new band to the Woody’s stage, beginning at 10pm and after the game on Saturday DJ Ian will be bringing the party. So stop by and see me sometime this weeek I’m itching to find out more of your secrets!
H.G. just checking in to tell ya’ll what a great weekend I had. I had so much fun swaying to the beats of Russ Thompson and Q Jones on Friday night. They truly are amazing artists and always put me in the best of moods. Also, I loved seeing an epic NCSU win over Virginia Tech last Saturday- I must admit I was a little nervous when we went into over time but shewww did they pull it out! Congrats to the Heels on their win over Virginia and sorry for all the Blue Devil fans out there for the devastating loss against Maryland. After a full day of games it was nice to see everyone out celebrating and to hear D.J. Ian on the turntables. I wish I could dance more but I wouldn’t want to fall from my post- unless of course there’s an attractive lady under me. Sorry too many Sexual Chocolates have me being a bit moosey. Oh I almost forgot to tell you! We just tapped Foothills Sexual Chocolate and whew it is as delicious as ever! We also tapped New Holland’s Hopivore which is a great IPA, sure to get you in the mood for spring. But if you missed me last weekend no worries you can stop by this week and enjoy one of the many happenings we are hosting here at City Market. Let’s see, we have Big Slow Tom’s trivia on Tuesday at 6:30 pm and again on Thursday starting at 7 pm. Also, on Tuesday NCSU is matching up against Florida State at 7 pm and UNC is taking on Georgia Tech at 9 pm. Also, don’t forgot about Trashy Trivia beginning around 10 pm- I always say a dirty mind is a terrible thing to waste. On Wednesday night we are tapping 21st Amendments Marooned Over Hog Island which will be $3.5 all night. Thursday in addition to trivia, Duke is matching up against Virginia Tech at 9 pm, and we will be having karaoke- which is one of my favorite events- as soon as the game is over. On Friday, Pete Fredrick is rocking the house starting at 10 pm. Saturday is the big match up between NCSU and UNC at 4 pm- we all know it’s going to be a good one, I bought a box of Kleenex to throw out to all those Carolina fans after they lose or dry my own sorrows if something crazy happens. That night we’re hosting another one of my favorites, Acoustic Manner and doing a Natty Greene’s promotion. Come out to support a great local band and brewery starting at 10 pm! Well that’s all from me this time. I must go commence to pre-gaming for the State game. Gooooo Pack! I hope to see ya’ll soon, as always your secrets are safe with me!
