ROOT Down Tomorrow at Standard Tap
Tomorrow night, Standard Tap (901 N. Second St.) will host the second installment of three happy hours featuring $4 ROOT cocktails. (The first was last Thursday at Bar; the next is Thu., March 25 at Charlie’s.) Standard’s edition will run from 8 to 10 p.m., featuring bonus specials on craft beers for those who need a breather from the potent effects of 80 proof bespoke liqueur. (Read Trey Popp’s June ‘09 feature on ROOT.) Free T-shirts, courtesy of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction in Old City, have been thrown in to sweeten the pot.
Check out Art in the Age’s Web site for more info on the spirit, recipes highlighting ROOT and more upcoming events highlighting the stuff, like the Useable Feast event scheduled for March 30 at Noble (more on this later).
Another ROOT Down series is highly probable for the month of April. We’ll keep you posted.
