There isn't just 100 options of beer either. They have food choices from LOCAL Public Eatery that will blow your mind, a few of them being:

  • Pulled pork sliders
  • El Gringo tacos
  • Pulled chicken taco
  • Mac 'n' Cheese

And to make the night even more lit (sorry), they have beats from 4 different DJ's for all the different sessions the event is holding.
