The Sink celebrates its 90th birthday on July 20

The self-proclaimed oldest bar and restaurant in Boulder will reach a new milestone when The Sink celebrates turning 90 years old with a birthday bash on July 20 at the Fox Theatre, featuring Funkopolis and Paa Kow’s By All Means Band.

The Sink originally planned to do a block party on the Hill, but chose the Fox as a suitable alternative for the festivities.

Tickets to get into the Fox show are $17, while the VIP ticket, which includes a Fox ticket, dinner, drinks and a 90-year T-shirt, is $60. The VIP pre-game party starts at 5:30 p.m. at The Sink and the show at the Fox starts at 7:30 p.m. and goes until midnight. Tickets can be purchased in person at The Sink, at the Fox or online at foxtheatre.com.

Odd13 Brewing opens Aug. 3

Old-town Lafayette will get a brand-new brewery on Aug. 3 when Odd13 Brewing puts on a full weekend party to celebrate its grand opening at 301 East Simpson St. The new brewery also plans to host an exclusive party on July 27 to its loyal Facebook fans who were selected to be on a VIP list.

The event will feature several food trucks, including Bon Appetit Mobile Bistro, a Savour Affair and Orange Crunch. Live music will be playing on Saturday and Sunday, and the brewery will hold raffles of free gifts for the party guests as well.

Odd13 already has several artists lined up to play at the brewery through December, and owners Ryan and Kristin Scott have high hopes for the company’s future.

Ryan Scott started brewing from home in 2009 and won two medals in the 2010 Drunk Monk Challenge for his specialty beer, The Self Righteous Black IPA, and for his Belgian Dark Strong Ale.

According to Odd13’s website, the rest was history — or is it the future?
