The Look Ahead: Beaver, Twins, Brade, Ducas and a Saint Arnold Ale Dinner

With the news that the iconic Elizabeth Taylor has passed away at the age of 79 my night’s activities have been decided for me. I’m going to dust off a copy of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, slip it into the movie-playing machine and enjoy. It’s one of my favorites.

That, however, is just one night of plans. There are so many more to look forward to. If we need to know about an upcoming event leave a comment, tweet at us (@TheLoopScoop) or email us at

Friday and Saturday night, you’re going to have to pay $6 for entry, but is that so much to ask?

If you can’t get behind beer paired with steak then… you must be a vegetarian. My heart goes out to you. My artery-clogged, cholesterol-filled heart. Check out the specifics of the dinner at Pappas Steakhouse at AllGoodBeer.

You don’t have to go to give. Donate to the cause. The goal is $3,000 and so far they’ve raised $810. We’re a day away from the event, and that’s a good start, but we need more. More and better. More better donations.

The Houston Twestival 2011 raises funds for Neighborhood Centers Inc which provides “community-based initiatives, providing classes and activities to educate youth and families through six community centers, focusing on youth development, health & wellness, financial strength and more.”
