You may remember my joyful excursion to Slim’s Testicle Festival last winter. It was my first time delving into a misunderstood cuisine affectionately known as Rocky Mountain Oysters. Since that time, I’ve been plotting a way to put together an event of my own.
That event has taken shape in the form of The Opera House Ball. I’ve organized a fundraiser for the restoration of our local historic opera house. Rocky Mountain Oysters and Good Beer. What could be better?
In keeping with the elegant-sounding name of the event, we’re encouraging “creative black tie,” though you’ll be admitted if you come in your coveralls. We’re not pretentious. We encourage you to dress up, but not too “up.”
Yes, yes, it’s a nutty route to historic preservation, and a part of my brewvana. I invite you to attend. We’ll likely be able to do tours throughout the afternoon, but details on that are emerging.
And if you’re local, catch up with me the next day, as we’ll do sack lunches if we have leftovers (wink, wink).
What: The Opera House Ball
When: Saturday, November 21, 2009
