Can Can Girls " We Love Them Cans" Kick-off Dinner
The Can Can Girls Beer Club is a fun, educational group for women who love CRAFT BEER!

Join The Can Can Girls for a special night filled with Oskar Blues brews, a deliciously prepared dinner by our award-winning head chef, Jason Rogers, raffle prizes, and live music, all in the name of raising money for breast cancer. The evening is dedicated to Connie Porter, one of the original Can Can Girls, who we lost to breast cancer several years ago. Net proceeds from the beer dinner, and all proceeds from the raffle tickets & special firkin will be donated to breast cancer research.

All proceeds from the sales of the firkin in the restaurant that evening will be donated to breast cancer research as well. Both Chef Rogers and Dave will discuss the pairings, and are happy to answer any and all questions you ladies have!
