The Cannibal Ramblers Are Really Going To Put The Hell In Halloween Tonight

By  |  0 Comments

They’re playing Pour Judgement’s Halloween party. Come dressed up and you could win $50!

The first time we saw the Cannibal Ramblers play Pour Judgement, we thought we were in some level of Hell, based on the following evidence:

  • It was really hot. (The A/C was broken in the middle of July)
  • There was a gritty roar that assaulted our eardrums (over the sound of the massive fan they had running).
  • A whole bunch of our friends were there.

And we loved it. So did a whole lot of other people. We don’t have any good pics of the performance because the stage was so mobbed that most people in PJs couldn’t see the band. But they could hear them!



Their lead singer, Mark Milloff, generally looks like Santa Claus wearing a Halloween costume, which is especially appropriate this weekend. His signature instrument is a guitar made out of a harpoon, though he’s got a couple more axes to strum on.

Anyhow, expect things to get a little strange tonight. According to the Ramblers’ Facebook Event we can look forward to:

Brief seminar on alien DNA found in the elusive Tardigrade. And someone in the band may pull down his pants to reveal a hideous monster.

In other words, this will be fun for the whole family…provided that they’re all over 21 and a bit demented.

Costume Contest!

Tonight’s the Halloween Party, so the staff will be all dressed up and so should you! Here’s how they looked last year.

The lineup will likely be very similar, except that Kate will be less jacked and named Josh. Meanwhile, regardless of how good they’re looking, they’re not going to be in the running for a $50 gift certificate. That’s for you!

Beers To Buy!

After a quick glance at the beer list last night, the beers you’re going to want to work on tonight are:

Stone Enjoy By 10.31.16 Tangerine IPA

As the name suggests, you, the beer drinking public, are under orders to kick this keg of 9.4% double IPA goodness in the next two days. Fortunately, this beer goes down so easy, even as its hops are launching an all out assault on your taste buds!

Wicked Weed Xibabla Imperial Pumpkin Ale

So this is an 8.2% ABV pumpkin ale (stout?) made with cacao nibs, chilies and spices. As pumpkin beers go, this is one of the best. It’s just not quite as good as the barrel-aged version we picked up from Bridge Liquors a few weeks back.

Firestone Walker Wookey Jack

Black IPAs aren’t everyone’s bag, but if you’re wobbly on the style (or have never tried it before) this is a great way to cement your opinion on how it should be done.

Happy Halloween!

So remember all the rules about having a safe Halloween. Check your drinks for razor blades and your candies for roofies. Don’t dress like a ninja and then play in traffic. Make sure to give your new gal an Adam’s apple check before you leave bar. All that stuff they told you in middle school.

And most importantly, have a great time.
