Nosh Pit Weekly Planner: February 19-25
This week: a northwest showcase of bites and sips, a beloved tavern turns 20, and a session that's all about whiskey
WEDNESDAY, February 19
Golden Beetle All-Day Happy Hour
Maria Hines's three-day birthday celebration runs through Wednesday. That means happy hour from 4:30-10. Get fire and chicken honey wings, spiced fries, the Skagit River Ranch burger, and other menu items for a reduced price, as well as enjoy draft beers for $6–8, wine for $4, and wells for $5.
Linda’s Tavern Turns 20
This bar has come a long way since 1994 and the crew is ready to party (well, when are they not?). Come get happy hour specials all night long. DJ Curtis and Derek Erdman will be spinning beats from the 90s until now—wonder if the Backstreet Boys will be in mix.
