Free Cask Beer at Triple Rock Social Club – January 3rd.

The winner of the Surly Anniversary Dinner tickets is….. Paige Fitzgerald! Thanks to the Happy Gnome for two complimentary tickets to the Surly Anniversary Dinner. See the calendar page for details.

Surly Nation continues to spread the word, thanks to the City Pages and Kevin Murphy for naming Omar an Artist of the Year. Now I’m gonna have to track down my 8th grade art teacher and have her bump up the C she gave me. More thoughts on this soon.

A Surly Xmas to you.
