|Play Madden and sip SweetWater brew on Mondays at Atkins Tavern!|
Atkins Park Tavern goes gourmet and plays games with SweetWater Brewery
I loved that line in the comedy flick Office Space where the rosy cheeked receptionist said to the disgruntled worker, “Looks like a case of the Mondays!” Although she was addressing his long face (left), I am using the phrase for solving the case of what’s poppin’ beer-wise on the first day of the week. In the last installment, I gave a shout out to the new venture, Monday Night Brewing, and their first growler fills of the Eye Patch IPA (6.3% abv/46 IBUs) and Drafty Kilt Scotch Ale (7.2%/26 IBUs) at Hop City, followed by the after party at Ormsby’s (which was completely nuts!). Congrats again, J-Crew!

pretty damn good with the Hopsecutioner too!
So what does this have to do with Monday? Nothing besides the fact that the Atkins’s dinner rocked. Wait, I take that back. The segue is that Atkins is hosting something pretty damn inventive tonight and every following Monday until the NFL season starts and televisions show Monday Night Football religiously (September 1, 2011). Are you a PlayStation gamer and love Madden? How about brews by SweetWater? Well if so, you are in heaven. Check this out direct from Atkins and SweetWater:
“Every Monday until the official start of the NFL Monday Night Football schedule, Atkins Park Tavern in Virginia-Highland is partnering with SweetWater Brewing Company to host a Madden NFL 2011 PlayStation Football Tournament on the restaurant’s big screen television beginning at 8:30 p.m. The Monday Madden tournaments will be played in a bracket style, and entry is free. Each quarter will last three minutes, and players will have the chance to win Atkins Park Tavern house cash, SweetWater Brewery tour passes and gear. Play begins at 8:30 p.m. and lasts until someone wins.”
I will admit that I have never played Madden because I consider it a drug like crack and I will never be able to kick the habit. I am that big a sports fan. So if you are already hooked, get in there and make your addiction worthwhile! There are only a few weeks left.
