January for you. All for you.


Our spooky hallway.

You’ve heard of Christmas in July, but what about July in Christmas? For those of you hardcore types who need something cold in these desolate wintertimes, we’re doing a weekly summer drink special. Last week? Pimm’s Cup. This week? Frozen Moonshine Strawberry Colada. Next week? Who knows? Come show us how tough you are. Order a summer thing and wear your mittens while you drink it.

Beer tastings! January 10th and 24th (both Tuesdays) come up at 8pm with a crisp five dollar bill and hang out with our resident beer expert Evan from Carrboro Beverage Company while he guides you through six fancy beers you’ve probably never heard of. Advance sign up is recommended so we know how much beer to get, but we usually order enough to accommodate walk-ins.

MUSIC, Holmes! Zog’s is hosting it’s first-ever DJ on Saturday, January 21st. DJ Creighton will be here with his turntables spinning some soul and funk for absolutely free. Fun starts around 9pm and we will have some great specials for you.

The Fooligans will be once again hosting our monthly potluck on Saturday the 28th. Come bring a dish, listen to some great live music from those guys and some special guests. Potluck starts at 7pm, music starts around 9, and the night doesn’t end until you leave (or 2am, whichever comes first).

Remember, we have free pool every single Sunday from open to close, and we open every day at 5pm with half priced pool from 5-9pm. We offer $3 hi balls on Mondays, $3 Fancy Drafts on Tuesdays, $2.50 Narragansetts and Ol’Yellas on Wednesdays, and rotating specials every other day.

Do you have questions? Comments? Do you want to book a party for cheap or free? Email Mandey at zogs.pool.ch@gmail.com and she’ll help with whatever you need.

And if you haven’t been to Zog’s in a while, it may be time for you to revisit and see the changes that have happened in the last year. If you have been, and you enjoyed yourself, review us on Yelp! We get inordinately excited about Yelp reviews.

Love,
Mandey! James! Jedd!

P.S.: Lastly, we have this self-explanatory thing goin’ on, too:

Feliz Navizog, Comrades. New Drinks and Events!


Huzzah!

It’s here, folks!  The Zog’s Holiday drink list!  Half hot drinks, half cold drinks, all delicious.  There will be at least two at a time on special every day until it gets too warm to keep doing that.  We’re open at 5 every day so come upstairs and tell us what you think!

Upcoming events:

In addition to FREE POOL from open to close every Sunday, we got:

Wednesday, November 30th:  Rockin’ Ammonia Karaoke!  Here’s the link to the Facebook invite. Rockin’ Ammonia is different from most other Karaoke by focusing more on Classic Rock and alternative and metal songs instead of shit you’ve never heard of sung by people only famous for winning game shows.  The event is free but there’s a suggested donation of a couple of bucks tip for Jon.  $3 PBR Tallboys, also!

Is this exciting to you?

Thursday, December 1st:  We’re teaming up with Chapel Hill’s loveliest bakery, Bread & Butter, for this month’s potluck!  Bring sandwich fixins and B&B will bring the breadstuffs!  It’s gonna be SO FREAKIN’ DELICIOUS my heart’s beatin’ fast already.  Potluck starts at 7 with LIVE MUSIC from Daniel Sean & friends starting around 9pm.  This event is free if you bring sandwich stuff but costs $6 if you come empty-handed and still wanna eat.  If you just want to come hear the music, not eat, and not bring anything, it’s free but you should totally tip the band, yo.

This is the kind of bread you're gonna put yer sammiches on. Straight from Bread & Butter!

September Potluck (and a couple of potluck pics)!


Kellye and Megan admire Jedd's Famous Omelet Bar!

Join us on Sunday, September 11, from noon-4pm for our next brunch potluck!  As always, Jedd’s Famous Omelet and French Toast Bar will be in full swing, and we’ll have build-your-own Bloody Marys on special!  Mimosas and Meximosas (champagne+Jumex) for $4!  If you’re into hard liquor after church, I can make you a shot guaranteed to taste like pancakes and syrup.  Try me.

Visit this link to view our Facebook Invite.  RSVP so we know how much stuff to get!!

Bring your favorite Brunch dish!  If you can’t bring any food, bring $8 to gain access to the smorgasbord. All paper products provided, and kids are welcome!  Pool is free, and so is coffee and hot tea.

Love, Mandey

P.S.: Here are a couple of pics from our last few potlucks:

Even vegetarians have fun at the Zoggy Potlucks.

Potluck and Live Music, Tuesday 1/18!


Zog Daddy Jimmie with Will (L) and Brad (R) of The Wiley Fosters!

Hey!  Open to everyone 21+, Zog’s is having a Potluck For No Damn Reason on Tuesday, January 18th, at 7pm with special guests The Wiley Fosters* (William Dawson of Squirrel Nut Zippers, Alcazar Hotel, and Katherine Whalen and her Fascinators and Brad Porter of Alcazar Hotel and Katherine Whalen and Her Fascinators) going on around 8pm.  Currently there are about 30 people signed up for the Potluck, which means there will be tons of food, fun, great people, and no snobbery happening on Tuesday.

If you’ve never been to Zog’s, you need to check it out.  Pool tables, arcade games, board games, specialty New Orleans-style cocktails and weird art everywhere make for a fun and interesting night out, and plus everyone’s friendly and really excited to meet new people.  If you haven’t been to Zog’s in while, you really should stop by to see the changes.  It’s still a neighborhood bar, but now with a new divey, artsy twist.  If you’re a regular at Zog’s, you’re already signed up for the Potluck, so just show up at 7 or whenever you can!  Since so many of us work in the service industry, there will be another small influx of people coming around 10 or 11, so don’t feel bad if you have to come late!

*Note:  in the above band links, WIlliam is the guitarist and Brad is the drummer.  The Wiley Fosters are a 2-piece blues-rock band who play a mix of incredible originals and much-loved covers, and Brad’s a bartender at Zog’s, so he’s definitely someone you should come meet!  The show is free but the guys work for tips, so, if you can, throw bucks in the box and rock out!

Love,

Mandey
