Apologies, Big Plans, and a Celebration of Beer

DJ Mary Poppin' will be spinning super fun beats at the 50/50 6th Anniversary Block Party this Saturday.

As several loyal readers have noticed, the Insider went AWOL recently. Things got totally crazy around here and, sadly, the Insider has been neglected of late. But don’t fear, in the midst of the craziness, we’ve been working on big plans to make the Insider better than ever. And we’re gearing up to bring you info on all the fantastic local happenings this summer!

In the meantime, if you are looking for something super fun to do this weekend, I’d recommend 50/50 Brewing Company’s 6th Anniversary Block Party on Saturday, May 18th. The outdoor grill will be firing and beer specials will be available all day, including some vintage and limited release bottles.

Even more exciting than an afternoon of day drinking (the party starts at 11am) is the awesome music line up. The day kicks off with the Aaron Oropeza Trio, followed by Truckee’s lovely DJ Mary Poppin’ and Forget the Roses.

Side note: The lovely Mary Poppin’ happens to be the Insider’s BFF and girlfriend of the equally fabulous DJ Silver Boombox Thief. I might be a tad biased, but little miss Poppin’ and boyfriend spin some ridiculously fun music. Just sayin’.

Oh, and if you get lucky you just might catch 50/50’s very own band, The Breaks, featuring owner Alicia Barr as lead singer, brewery server Bryan Chaffe on guitar, and bartender Tiffany Michalka on the bass.

Doors open at 11am, all ages welcome!
Aaron Oropeza Trio: 1 – 3pm
DJ Mary Poppin’: 3 – 5pm
Forget the Roses: 5 – 7pm
