We love democracy in action, and a little dissent, coupled with drink, is another way to celebrate being an American. To that end, Trubble Brewing, 2725 Broadway, wants to create an alternative event to Friday’s swearing-in of our 45th president.
The brewpub will inaugurate its United States of Fort Wayne party 4 p.m.- closing Saturday "to put the divisive politics from the 2016 presidential race in the past," it says in a news release. "The event will do that by celebrating Fort Wayne’s diversity of culture, individuality, creativity and heritage."
Patrons 21 and over of all creeds, sexualities and backgrounds are invited.The event includes an open mic and community jam session, local art display, and live entertainment from groups, including a belly dancing troupe. Guests can celebrate or drown their sorrows with a full menu of food with ingredients from local producers and Trubble Brewing’s brand of craft beer as well as other beverages.
The event coincides with the Our Promise peaceful demonstration scheduled for 3 p.m. Saturday at the Allen County Courthouse.
Bar 145 closed forever?
We reported that Bar 145 said it was closed while it hired new staff, but the "for sale" sign and the Fort Wayne location’s dissappearance from the corporate website and Facebook have us wondering.
We’re checking with corporate and will let you know what we hear.
Rally’s in New Haven closed?
This is becoming a sad theme. We got an email inquiry about this. No one answered the phone at the restaurant during lunchtime.
Nothing on Facebook makes us believe it’s closed permanently, but it is not on the list of locations on the corporate website. We’ll keep trying.
