February Fun at the Zoggy


February’s insane, my friends.  Here goes:

Tuesday the 7th:  BEER TASTING with Evan, 8-9pm

Come join us at Zog’s for our bi-monthly Beer Tasting with Evan from Carrboro Beverage Company!  He’s the most knowledgeable beer guy we know, and he picks out six crazy beers for each tasting.  Pay your 5 bucks and you get 4-oz samples of each beer.  That’s 24 oz of fancy beer for five bones!  Sign up in advance, though, because we cap it at 25 and they usually fill up fast!

 

Saturday the 11th:  SOUL DEEP with DJ Creighton, 9pm-2am

DJ Creighton gives you hours of bona-fide soul vinyl.  No cover, just dancing.

Tuesday the 14th:  VALENTINE’S DAY THROWBACK PROM! 8pm-2am

That’s right, we’re throwing a prom for all you adults who can’t get enough shitty 90s music, taffeta dresses, and leaving room for the Holy Ghost.  Prizes will be given for best get-ups, and we will be voting for a Prom King and Queen!!

Friday the 17th:  Zog’s MARDI GRAS BASH 5pm-2am

Come celebrate the best holiday ever with NOLA transplants! Live Zydeco music from Stuart McNair!  Jackson Square-style caricature artist Richard Cloudt will be here to draw your portrait!  Make-Your-Own Mardi Gras Mask!  Hurricanes, Abita, and Dixie on special!  Bring a Cajun-inspired dish if you’re so inclined!  DRESS UP IN COSTUME! IT’S MARDI GRAS!!

Tuesday the 21st: BEER TASTING with Evan, 8-9pm (see above for info)

Saturday the 25th: JOHNNY STAXX AND THE DURTY BOYS and Sydney’s 21st Birfday!!

And don’t forget, Pool is FREE every single Sunday open to close.

And wait, before you go. . .It’s time to vote in the INDY WEEKLY BEST OF THE TRIANGLE 2012!

Mandey.

 

 

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:

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!

Mandey
