There are some things that just belong together. Peanut butter and jelly. Biscuits and gravy. Beer and skiing.
Regarding the latter, the 219 Lounge is launching a promotion during November that will culminate in a Pray for Snow Party on Dec. 1 at the bar where they’ll give away a set of Pabst Blue Ribbon branded 188 Lib Tech skis and also a snowboard.
Here’s how it works: Every customer that buys a draft beer during the month of November will receive a ticket for entry into a drawing to win the skis or snowboard. The drawing will take place on Friday, Dec. 1, at 10 p.m. at the Pray for Snow Party. To win the skis or board, you must be present.
The 219 will feature $4 pints of 10 Barrel Brewing’s “Pray for Snow Winter Ale,” during November, along with their other selections on tap.
The Pray for Snow Party will kick off at 5 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 1, and will feature live music with The Incredible Flying Dookie Brothers from 9 p.m. until midnight. There will also be ski and board videos playing throughout the night, swag, snacks and beer and drink specials.
Head down to the 219 Lounge, 219 N. First Ave. in Sandpoint, and start putting those tickets in the jar.
