May Is Lower East Side History Month

FullPintWe here at Jimmy’s No. 43 are very proud to be part of the East Village Independent Merchants Association (owner Jimmy Carbone is President of EVIMA) and participating in LES History Month!

Four years ago, FABnyc and Downtown Art collaborated with LES cultural and community groups to launch the first neighborhood-wide celebration of the unique legacies of the Lower East Side. Now, this annual event involves more than 80 community groups and small businesses – including Jimmy’s No. 43 – all drawing attention to the contributions of immigrants, workers, artists and revolutionaries who shaped the LES.

Two key events this week:

  • Manhattan Sideways: A Photographic Journey Through the East Village – Wednesday, May 3rd opening reception with afterparty at Jimmy’s No. 43 – more info here
  • Taste of East 7th Street – Thursday, May 4th, through Sunday, May 7th, with 10 restaurants participating, including Jimmy’s No. 43 – more info and tickets here

We hope to see you at Jimmy’s No. 43 during Lower East Side History Month!

Spring into Your Craft Beer Family: Ciders, Sours, Casks and More

AprilSours2017We’re welcoming you, our Craft Beer Family, to drop by in the coming days to celebrate some of our favorite ciders and beers of the season. Starting with a Meet the Cider Maker Event (Thursday, 4/13 at 6PM) featuring John Reynolds of Blackduck Cidery to building up our spring beer list that will feature some of our favorite sour beers.

We have a long history of great sours, but it has taken awhile for the public to catch on to these amazing brews.

Owner Jimmy Carbone remembers: “Back in 2006, we had a Cantillon Geuze from Belgium, and no one bought it. Two years ago, we received another keg and sold out in under three hours. April Sours lets us hand-select some of the best domestic and European sours on the market for a single tasting event.”

So if Lambics, Goses and sour beers are your favorites for spring, be sure to get your tickets for our annual April Sours, taking place on Saturday, April 29th (tickets here). You’ll sample 20+ beers with plenty of food offered alongside.

And if you’re looking for more to do as April Sours bring forth May Brunches, here are some more themes and events “on tap” here at Jimmy’s No. 43:

  • Cask Friday (Friday, April 14th, from 5PM) – tapping a cask of Fyne’s Maverick, a dark bitter from Scotland
  • Tuesday, April 18th, we’re heading down to Hometown BBQ around 6PM for “A Brisket Talk” (email if you’d like to attend)
  • Speaking of Brisket, on Wednesday, April 19th, we’ll be back in Brooklyn for Brisket King of NYC (the bar has regular service if you’re in the East Village)
  • On Saturday, April 22nd, we’ll be welcoming Gabe Cook, the “Ciderologist,” from New Zealand (by way of the UK) for a cider-themed night (more details soon)
  • On Wednesday, April 26th, we welcome back our friend Brad Japhe for “Botanicals and Beyond: The Spring of Gin” (tickets required)
  • West Coast Craft Beer Pioneers Night featuring Sierra Nevada (Thursday, April 27th)
  • April Sours on Saturday, April 29th
