Who wants to “drink like a monk”? We’ll be kicking off the Lenten season next week with our own special take on Mardi Gras/Carnivale, as we usher in our annual Liquid Lent (40 days of amazing beers, tastings and meet-and-greets!) when we’ll feature Belgians, abbey beers, large bottle format brews by the glass and some great programming heading into the annual NYC Beer Week (taking place from February 19-28).
Starting on Tuesday, February 9th from 6 p.m., we celebrate“Carne-val,” our own special take remembering the origins of Mardi Gras/Shrove Tuesday. We’ll have a whole roast “Lechon” pig from Tito King’s Kitchen at Jimmy’s No. 43 (pay as you go) and some killer tunes courtesy of live music featuring the N’Orleans blues and jazz sounds of George Kilby Jr’s “Mardi Gras Revue.”
At midnight, we will segue into Liquid Lent: 40 Days of Drinking Like Monk, when we’ll feature Belgian and abbey ales along with some great tastings (look for an Orval Night – TBA and a Chimay Night on Thursday, February 25th with plenty more TBA).
Inspired by a blogger who decided to live on beer for Lent, Jimmy’s No. 43 is joins five other East Village craft beer establishments (Burp Castle, ABC Beer Co., Malt & Mold, East Castle and Proletariat) to celebrate Liquid Lent, the time when we focus on renewal and wait for spring… all while drinking some amazing craft beer!
We expect beer luminaries to be dropping by for meet-and-greets and tastings all month long. We hope to see you as we celebrate the closing weeks of winter with Liquid Lent!
