One of our favorites, Idle Hands, is beginning a long celebration today in honor of its one year anniversary, coinciding withÂ NY Craft Beer WeekÂ and the Kentucky Bourbon Festival. They also recently added That Burger to its kitchen full-time (shared with Billy Hurricane’s upstairs), so you can always get delicious food at the bar (and don’t forget about free mini burgers with a drink purchase on Monday nights!).
It’s a long list of events over two weeks, but we especially have our eyes on their one year anniversary party this Friday with $1 8oz craft beers until 8 pm (and $1 whiskey shots all night), as well as the Pumpkin Festival on September 30th. As noted below, you have one month to try 15 different pumpkin beers for $55. That comes out to about $3.66 per beer, an unbelievable deal if you love pumpkin beer! Enjoy the events!
