It's been a rough few weeks for the Fairfield Avenue business district, but now it's nuthin' but smooth sailin' to get to all your favorite shops and eateries who will truly appreciate your support after a tough July!
Check out all these reasons to spend your evening in Bellevue this Friday:
We'll be having a Caribbean weekend starting on First Friday at 5 pm through Sunday, August 6 at 10 pm. There will be a special price on selected Caribbean-themed Malts and Milkshakes. Stop by and enjoy your ice cream/ice balls on our patio while listening to Island music!
There's still going to be laughter at Darkness Brewing even with "Last Call for Alcohol" being on hold. Schedule your Friday and Saturday nights at 9 pm in the front room for Movie Madness (except for August 12 since everyone needs to be celebrating Darkness Brewing's anniversary)!
So, what in the heck is Movie Madness? Done in the style of late night movie hosts of yore such as local Cincinnati favorite The Cool Ghoul (Dick Von Hoene), Svengoolie, and Elvira, MOVIE MADNESS! with host Count Fat-Cula is sure to widen your film knowledge as well as tickle your funny bone.
"The Night of the Living Dead" is scheduled for opening night of Movie Madness! on Friday, August 11. Each weekend a different movie will be featured. Tickets are $5 and includes free popcorn. Get them in advance, because seating is limited for this great partnership of Darkness Brewing and WE ARE Productions.
Celebrating with neighbors and visitors is what makes Bellevue and the Commonweath of Kentucky unique! This pop-up event features Buffalo Wabs & The Price Hill Hustle, Eli's BBQ, West Sixth Brewing and local makers selling their creations.
