Benefit for Jake Trout @Blowin' Smoke
Benefit for Jake Trout @Blowin’ Smoke

SPEND the day at Blowin’ Smoke sampling beers and brunch items, enjoying live music, and supporting local Jake Trout in his fight against stage 4 lymph node cancer.

Basik Lee, Joe Nelson, Kerry Walsh, Jeremy John Riddle, and Dope Sandwich Records artists will entertain with a variety of hip-hop, soul, and singer-songwriter stylings.

Additionally, get ready to enjoy a Service Brewing Company Tap Takeover. Try the new Lincoln’s Gift Oyster Stout (seriously, you gotta try it; with May River oysters added during the boil, the stout’s got this really pleasing briny edge to it), Battlewagon DIPA, Rally Point Pilsner, Scout’s Out Honey Saison, and cans of the classic Compass Rose IPA and Ground Pounder Pale Ale. If you’re looking to sip something a little different, there will be $2 domestic tallboys, $4 mimosas, $5 margaritas, and $6 Habersham Bloody Marys, as well.

That Oyster Stout would certainly complement some real-deal oysters, huh? You’re in luck! The Smoke is hosting an oyster roast as a part of the benefit, so you can shuck away the day.

Nosh on shrimp and grits, fried chicken and waffles, or a veggie western omelet from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.. Or down all of ‘em. We aren’t judging.

Plus, you can pick up one dollar raffle tickets from a huge list of sponsors, ranging from Gaslight Group (Blowin’ Smoke’s parent company) to Black Orchid Tattoo to Angels Envy Bourbon to Vinnie Van Go-go’s.

All money raised will go straight to Jake and his family as he battles cancer.

Sunday, November 29, 12 p.m., all-ages
