I just received an email from one of my favorite bars in Chicago, Local Option, about an upcoming party they are having on July 6th. This pub is seriously badass… the food is really good and they have a very impressive tap list at any given time. If you were looking for an excuse to visit the city, here go you.
Sly will celebrate his birthday by beating your palate into submission on July 6th.
On Friday July 6th at 3pm Local Option will host “Sylvester Stallone’s Birthday Celebration” – a beer event honoring the Italian Stallion’s illustrious film career. The events beer list – which features new, rare or highly sought after releases from Ölvisholt (Iceland), Three Floyds (Indiana), Scheldebrouwerij (Belgium), Firestone Walker (California), Nøgne-ø (Norway), Evil Twin (Brooklyn) and Local Option Bierwerker (Crook County) – will be paired with screenings of the entire Rocky series.
