Music Monday: Rock Thursday at Golden Gopher w/ Casper VonDJ

June 3rd, 2013 — 4:14pm

Every Thursday at Golden Gopher Casper VonDJ mans the tables and is your rock host. You can sit back and drink your beer and whiskey to some of the best handpicked rock n roll tracks from the 60′s, 70′s and 80′s. Casper has been at this game for longer than a minute and has a catalog of rock n roll that he will be laying down from 10P till 2a. Take advantage of the Low Life that is a beer and shot for only $7. Thank us later for looking out.

Seven Grand San Diego Whiskey Society: Featuring Dave Adams from Green Flash Brewery, Tuesday, June 4th, 8:00pm

May 31st, 2013 — 3:59pm

Dear Fellow Whiskey Fanatics,

We have a great change of pace this week…meaning  tasting some beer instead of whiskey.  Tuesday June 4th at Seven Grand San Diego we have Dave Adams in from Green Flash Brewery.  Dave is the head of education for Green Flash and will be tasting us through wide array of their beers.  If you are not familiar with this particular brewery, they have been on the forefront of the craft explosion in San Diego.  This will be a great chance to pick Dave’s brain on why Green Flash has been able to take not just San Diego but the country by storm.

We will be starting the tasting at 8pm sharp (as a posed to the last tasting).  We look forward to seeing all of you again.
