I’ve been making a push in our family for a long time to ditch the Christmas present routine. It’s not that I don’t enjoy buying presents for my loved ones, but I much prefer spending time with them instead. Presents will be forgotten, it’s the memories that remain.
That being said, I never would have ventured out on Black Friday anyway. It seems like a pretty miserable way to save a buck. Personally, I want to give back this holiday season. Luckily for me, the International Tap House has combined doing something good this season with along enjoying a pint or two thanks to their annual Black Friday event.
Starting at 11AM this Friday, November 28th, each iTAP location will be not only providing some unique beers, but also each location will have a different charity they’re supporting:
- iTap Soulard will be supporting St. Patrick Center and new or gently worn winter “gear” will be collected.
- iTap Central West End will be supporting SLU Leadership Toy Drive and unwrapped toys for children aged 5 to 13 will be collected.
- iTap Chesterfield will be supporting O.A.S.I.S. and new or gently worn winter “gear” will be collected.
And because you’re giving, iTAP will be giving back. Customers that bring in items to iTAP will receive a 2-for-1 beer deal (one per customer on select beers). Speaking of beer, iTAP is bringing out some of your winter favorites (as always, beers are subject to change, but I’m sure you’ll still find something delicious on tap):
