It’s tuesday, and in less than 48 hours Saranac Thursdays will officially kick off at the FX Matt Brewery in Utica, NY.
Gates open at 5pm and admission is $5, which also secures your first drink. Weather.com is calling for a high of 74 degrees and thunderstorms- not exactly conducive to outside imbibing, but perhaps the outlook will improve. The scheduled band is the local staple Showtime.
When the courtyard closes at eight, take a walk down Varick St. for a variety of options to continue the evening. Among those are Nail Creek, a great beer bar with good atmosphere and The Electric Company, featuring Mecca Bodega.
Saranac Thursdays raises money for the United Way.
