• While not a St. Patrick's Day event per se, the opening for "Memphis"

Butcher had someone brew up a keg of Irish stout for the opening. but there's a caveat here: To get a taste, you must purchase a $10 glass designed by Butcher. Real truth, those glasses (only 48 available) are destined to be a collectors item ...
The opening is Friday, 6-8 p.m.
