This Week @ Habitat Brewing Co.
We are open Monday through Sunday, starting at 3pm each day except on Saturday and Sunday when we open at 12 Noon. We have a good lineup of offerings, so we look forward to seeing you this week!
Tuesday night is our next installment of our Pint with a Professor series! We changed it up a little bit this month due to the 4th of July falling on the first Tuesday, so this is a special edition with Professor of Religious Studies, Matt Hoffman, who will be exploring Islamaphobia in today's western cultures. Matt is a neighbor and regular at Habitat Brewing and teaches at Warren Wilson College. He specializes in Islamic Studies and will bring a wealth of research and conversations to the Commons on Tuesday night. We are so excited to present this topic to our community, especially in light of recent trends toward travel bans for people from predominantly Islamic countries, the United States' longstanding interests in supporting the state of Israel, and the global rise of anti-Muslim sentiment and the media's interest in pinning terrorism on this particular religious community.
A brand new, one of a kind event in Asheville is coming to Habitat this Thursday night!! SPOILER ALERT! is a movie screening similar to Mystery Science Theater 3000 or the Doug Benson Interruption. We will screen cult movies and local comedians will help us laugh at bad acting, corny dialogue and more. Free popcorn included with $5 ticket. Hosted by local comedians Moira Goree with special guests Hillary Begley and Miguel Angel Osornio! Manos: The Hands of Fate is easily one of the worst movies ever made, and you will be sure to love the commentary offered by our live comedians. RSVP on Facebook so we know how many to expect and whether or not we need a food truck.
Comedy Weekend!! This Friday and Saturday night will feature two comedy shows. Friday night is a stand up comedy showcase GVL in the AVL! Greenville, SC comedians will showcase their skills for us Ashevillians, so come out and laugh with friends, heckle our rivals to the south, or support your neighbors depending on how you feel. This stand up show is $8 pre-sale and $10 at the door. You won't want to miss this! Saturday night is AIC's next Improv Showcase featuring THE OUTSIDERZ (a wrestling themed troupe) and AIC's very own you, me, & them. These improv troupes are always really good and the room is always full of laughter. $5 show at the door.
Saturday night plan on showing out your moves on the Commons dance floor! DJ Dr. Filth will bring the 45's back to life with funk, soul, and retro stylings. Dr. Filth's Saturday night Dance Parties at the Admiral become the stuff of legend in West Asheville over the years. We're hoping to bring the same vibe to Habitat with regular DJ nights and dancing on Saturdays. We're honored and thrilled to kick off our Saturday dance parties in style! We're suggesting a $5 cover to support his efforts for the night, but we just want you to slide into your freshest digs and let loose. Music will start after the improv show and will run until at least 1AM. Do not...(repeat)... DO NOT miss this!!
