However, this time around we’re also bringing on some radical new restaurant bites to pair with great beer and an even better dance party.
This year’s 5th annual NKOTB beer fest is taking place THIS Friday, June 9 at 7 p.m. at The Lobby brought to you by PorchDrinking.com and The Lobby.
Not only do you get to sample all of the newest Colorado breweries in one place, but you can also show off your finest 80’s costumes and dance moves for this combo 80’s dance party and beer festival while also enjoying some of the best new eats! (Yes, no drink tickets here, folks!)
