THURSDAY, August 15th

Nelson Brewing Company TTO at FHK&T | EVENT ALERT: Nelson Brewing Company is coming to take over our taps (TTO) Thursday, August 15th from 7-11 pm. NBC started brewing in the 1800s. It was later sold to Columbia Brewery and opps were moved to Creston (Kokanee brewery). A new NBC started brewing in 1991 in the original building; there is still a gall-dang creek running through the building that was originally diverted into the brewery as a form of plumbing. With new branding, and lots of new small-batch beers, NBC is definitely worth a tour and their beer is definitely worth a drink. Come meet the folks that have been slinging beer in the Koots as long as anyone.

Chef Doug has worked his usual magic on a one-day-only menu to light a fire that only a paired NBC beer can put out. See you here!

* Hosted by Fire Hall Kitchen & Tap

…of course, there's much more than one thing happening on each day this week, and there are many more days to plan for than just the next 7, so listen to what your gut is trying to tell you & make sure you bookmark 95EH.CA (either in your browser or your brain) for those future moments when you find yourself wondering about what’s going on and coming up in the area.

But for right now—since we’re already right here, reading this same sentence—I’ve added a version of The 95EH Events Calendar below for you to see everything happening on whatever day/month you’re curious about.


THE 95EH MINI CALENDAR

* IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO GET YOUR KIMBERLEY / CRANBROOK & AREA EVENT LISTED IN THE 95EH EVENTS CALENDAR, IT'S AS SIMPLE AS THESE INSTRUCTIONS THAT BASICALLY SAY THAT ALL YOU NEED TO DO IS JUST CREATE A FACEBOOK EVENT FOR YOUR EVENT.

Looking for some good music for the week ahead?

Well, we biasedly recommend MOUN.TOWN/FM - which is a 'pretend, for real' radio station that features fresh playlists that you can listen to at work, at home, in the car, or even on top of a mountain (which might be all in one day when you live in a mountain town).


+ Here's SOME stuff FROM THE BLOG for even more options for getting to know the local vibe better — or maybe just for extending that coffee break a little longer, eh?


And that’s it for this week’s weekly run down.

If you’d like even more “ehs?!” throughout the week, make sure to follow 95EH on the socials…

…and be sure to keep an eye out on Friday for 'The Weekend EH?!’ — which is kinda like ‘The Weekly Eh?!’ but also a little different *and more importantly* The 95EH Events Calendar is always adding more local events because events never stop getting made—so there’s just a lot of stuff going on, eh?
