Black Friday? Or Civil Friday …
This is a busy week for all of us here at the Civil Life. Our warm and woody pub will be packed with friendly faces celebrating friends and family with the finest ales and lagers available at any price (bonus: we only charge $5 for an Imperial pint!). We are thankful for our great regulars and all of you who choose to bring visiting relatives and friends to see us during the holidays. Cheers!
Some of you may be planning to get a head start on holiday shopping, by taking advantage of sales and special promotions. After braving the crowds and traffic and lines and (let’s face it) unseasonal incivility, you will probably want to stop by the Civil Life for a restorative pint. That’s a wise strategy.
Allow us to suggest an even wiser approach to the madness and chaos of Black Friday shopping. Sleep in … you have the day off, why get up at the crack of dawn to stand in line? Enjoy coffee and snacks in the comfort of your own home. Around noon, get your friends and family and head down to the Civil Life for lunch … and ALL of your holiday shopping needs!
Enjoy a pint of porter or ESB and one of Tony and Dave’s award-winning sandwiches. Contemplate the many fine gift options available. We have growlers and six-packs of cans. We have plenty of T-shirts. We have giant soccer scarves and tweed caps. You can kit out your favorite sport enthusiasts with Civil Life Rugby shirts, cycling jerseys, and soccer shirts. Don’t forget mesh-back trucker caps. A decorative “Be Civil” tin sign will brighten any room. We have pint glasses, patches, and stickers. Get a limited edition print featuring our logo characters from 2011-2016, drawn by Saint Louis’s most talented tattoo artist, the great Joe Allhoff.
Can’t decide … have Jake write a gift certificate for you. The promise of a visit to the Civil Life will bring joy to the heart of anyone on Christmas morning.
The important thing is to skip the mall and the big box stores and come where you really want to be. Call it a gift to yourself. You deserve it. Happy Thanksgiving from the Civil Life. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family. We hope you can find time to stop in for a pint and a case of beer to go!
The Civil Blog has returned. It is predominantly authored by Civil Life Barman, Dr. Patrick Hurley, who can be found tending to our bar patrons on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. He is also responsible for tending to our draft lines, which is recognized as one of our most important tasks. Special guest writers will appear from time to time. We hope reading this blog will give you much insight about the Civil Life and most importantly help you understand a bit more about all of us that work here and the beers we put our hearts into.
