ill drink to that 2

“What do you get when you spend six years building a show that shows love to the community that it sits within?

What happens when you combine, poets, musicians, live artists, beer, and food? What is most effective and fun when you think about all the things you can absorb, eat, and drink? One answer should come to the surface when talking about what to do around town – that answer might most fittingly be, IDTT – aka – I’LL Drink To That.

It’s been seventy-two months, y’all! That’s right – for 6 years straight, once a month, this Burque based variety show has taken the stage to display the best of the best in regards to 10-15 minute snippets of what our city has to offer. However, getting off track a bit – and pivoting to keep things funky and “Phresh,” I’LL Drink To That has turned the page/stage on things and in this 6th year, invited bigger bands to “headline” each show. So, if you didn’t know – now you know.

In its 72nd iteration, this one of a kind show is bringing some one of a kind acts to the mic. We are celebrating the baddest of Burque, thanks to Blown. Blown Glass Goods is IDTT’s sponsor for the 72nd offering. What does that mean? That means those who show up to the show, might just get shown love, by this Burque based glass company.

For some of you folks out there – you might have seen some of their inventory at your local “head shop.” This month, when you stop by the tap room, you can pick up some swag, perhaps Blown girls will give you a “FREE” beer courtesy of these crazy glass cats – and we know you’ll enjoy the acts influenced by this month’s sponsorship.

Coming to the stage for this special day will be Bles Infinite of the 2bers, along with local and regional High Desert Reggae favorite, The Riddims. It’ll be all love – just make sure you pass that sentiment to the left. What we will be left with, after this knock down, take the “drag out of life”  style affair, is a need for the hair of the dog – an affinity for business to business collaboration, and a desire to make sure not to miss another IDTT for the calendar year of 2018.

Come and get FREE swag from Blown Glass Company, hear the sounds of some of Burque’s best musical acts, and interact with some like minds on your #SundayFunDay. There will be announcements about a prize giveaway from our event sponsor and an appropriately themed LIVE art display and auction.

What goes together better than craft beer, “crafted” culture, and small business boosting? We’d have to say, absolutely nothing. We need only ask, will you “drink to that?”
