If you don’t have plans for this Saturday, our friends at the Blue Sky Fund (in conjunction with Sweetwater and New Belgium breweries) are putting on a fundraiser that lovers of tacky lights and craft beer should really enjoy.  Tickets are still available!

Craft beer makes lights like these seem less tacky, no?

Here’s the info from their Eventbrite page:

Please join Blue Sky Fund, New Belgium and Sweet Water breweries as we take an adventure through some of RVA’s tackiest lights and stop off to drink crafty beers at some of your favorite watering holes!  Tickets are $40 and include a boxed dinner from Savory Grain, transportation, New Belgium and Sweet Water goodies, a concert at The Camel, and a donation to Blue Sky Fund!


5-5:30 p.m.: Passengers check-in at The Camel

6: Bus departs from The Camel to view some crafty lights

7:30-8:30: stop at Capital Ale House Innsbrook to re-fuel

8:30-9:30: tour more crafty lights en route back to The Camel

9:30: The after-party starts with James Justin & Co at The Camel!

ALL event proceeds benefit Blue Sky Fund.  We’re excited for a fun night and hope you can join us!
