As the weather conforms to something appropriate for an Icebox Days Weekend, we have loads of activities happening to keep you moving with amazing craft brews to keep you warm. Here's a rundown of this weeks activities at Loony's Brew.

Sunday Afternoon Canoe Races
Starting at 1pm, you and your partner can race against other teams pulling canoes down the alley and back while your fans or the audience cheers you on.
Should be an exciting weekend at Loony's and just about everywhere else in town for a few days, visit the IceBox Days website to check out other events happening through the weekend.
I don't know if it's the relatively warm weather we've been having, the drastic changes in weather from this fall through now, the New Year kicking in after some holidays, Ice Box days coming up next week already, or a combination of all of the above plus a bunch of other stuff but things seem to be moving blazingly fast lately. Just so you don't miss anything, here's a recap of activities at Loony's this week:
Sports Backtalk with Boly and Ringer, from around 5-7pm, usually about an hour but starts and ends within those timeframes. Here you can get updated on all the local, state, and national sports activities with a Q&A with the audience at the end of the show. For later in the evening, as Mondays are relatively slower than other days of the week, it's started to become a bit of a karaoke/open mic night, helping from having a smaller, more intimate crowd to play with.
Dart night, great to cheer or heckle your preferred teams.
Trivia night is back! Starting at 7pm with a mystery prize for the winning team. Lots of fun guessing the answers to the new and crazy questions that Kevin comes up with. Every week seems to try out a new direction or two.
That's about it for now, enjoy the relatively warm and snowy January of Northern Minnesota!
Come on down this Saturday to escape the cold and warm up with the strong energy of Sloughgrass!
The Happening Events Loony
Starting around 4pm and continuing until 8pm or so with a possible Boly & Ringer Sports Backtalk show in between, this is a fairly informal event where you can simply show up with a friend to play with, play with someone else, play with teams, up to you, we have a half dozen different cribbage boards ready to go. Of course, if you have your own unique cribbage board, this is a great time to show it off to others. In the last two weeks, I've seen using empty rifle shells as pegs in one and another in the shape of two moose fighting. The potluck appetizers make it an added bonus with a few different tasty things to snack on while playing.
