Over at McMenamins this week

McMenamins Old St. Francis School has a couple of cool things going on this week—one free, one a little spendy (but not too much).

Wednesday the 25th, starting at 5, is their monthly limited-edition beer tasting:

Once a month, on Last Wednesdays, stop by to try a limited-edition, special release beer. And when the keg is kicked, that’s it. When it’s gone, it’s gone.

That’s the free event—of course, you may well want to buy an appetizer or two and perhaps a full pint of one of their other beers.

Then on Thursday the 26th, is a Scotch and Cigar Tasting: $50 for a reservation, and it starts at 7.

Sample a selection of scotches, partake of hearty appetizers and finish out the evening with cigars.
