PICK OF THE WEEK: Sunday, Nov. 19: Say YES to trying new brews this Sunday at the Brickway Stout Release Party, where a portion of the proceeds go to Youth Emergency Services (YES). The Brickway babes will be serving up two different types of chili, each made with one of the new stouts. And of course, there will be cinnamon rolls, that essential Midwestern chili accompaniment. There’s even a raffle to win a signed Dave Koenig print, with 100 percent of those sales going to YES. So make that trek downtown, or just across the street, and help support a good cause while trying the latest tasty concoctions from the crew at Brickway Brewery. Go here for more details.
Thursday, Nov. 16: Feeling a little bluesy? Well, that’s a good thing, because tonight you can catch prolific blues artist Jack Broadbent at the Holland Center. Let this singer/songwriter/slide guitarist help you work those blues out of your bones with his warm energy and folksy, rocking blues. With music running through his veins, Broadbent used to perform on the streets of London before headlining international tours. From the U.K. to the U.S., he’s been garnering attention and a loyal fanbase. If you’re not already there, this show will make you a convert. Get tickets (if you still can) here.
