This is going to be another long email. There is so much going on at Arnold’s these days I just can’t keep it short and sweet. First the going on’s at Arnold’s, then I have prizes for a few people that receive our emails.
Bret and I will be on vacation next week, so, no email from me next week. Please take note of the Valentines Day and The Bockfest Fundraiser. Those are both going to sell out so I want to make sure our regular customers get a seat if you so choose. The Bockfest Fundraiser can be viewed at bockfest.com
A Sinatra Valentine
Looking for a romantic but not so serious place to go this Valentine’s Day? Arnold’s is it. We are putting our focus more on fun than deep eye gazing. We have the Vocal styling of our own Frank Sinatra Impersonator, Matt “The Cincinnati Sinatra” Snow crooning Ol’ Blues Eye’s most romantic cuts all night long. Just because it’s Valentine’s Day doesn’t mean that you have to be all serious and stuff. It’s all about having a good time, right?
It doesn’t have to be expensive either. Arnold’s is offering a 4-course prix fixed menu with a glass of wine for only 14.95. I know, I know, it should be a night a guy drops some serious coin. We don’t buy that. Use the money for something else, buy her more flowers or more chocolates (we hope that you are more inventive than that) or a bigger ring or a house in the Hamptons, whatever. The point is, you don’t have to spend a lot of money to have a good time and for it to be a special night that you will always remember. Seating is at 5:30 and 7:15. Call Arnold’s for reservations at 513-421-6234

Prohibition Resistance Tour 2010
Special VIP Tour and Dinner
February 16, 2010
Join us as we celebrate Cincinnati's rich brewing heritage with a special VIP brewery tour and 5-course wild game dinner.
We'll start the tour at Arnold's, where buses will take us to the former Kauffman Brewery, where we'll hear about Cincinnati's beer barons and explore the massive subterranean lagering cellars under the building. A brief walk will take us to the former Crown Brewery (also known as the Schmidt Brothers Brewery). Here we'll learn how Prohibition closed most of the Cincinnati breweries and dealt a devastating blow to Over-the-Rhine. This tour will include a visit to the recently rediscovered and reopened lagering cellars and tunnel underneath McMicken Avenue, which have been sealed off for 50 years and never before opened to the public.
We'll hop back on the bus to return to Arnold's where owner Ronda Androski and her staff will present a five-course wild game dinner, including appetizers. During each course of wild game, each paired with a different beer, there will be a guest speaker talking about beer and Over-the-Rhine. Guest speakers will be Bret Androski (Arnold’s history buff), Jim Tarbell (the man that knows more about Cincinnati than anyone), Greg Hardman (Owner of Christian Moerlein), Mike Morgan (Director of the Over-the-Rhine Foundation) and Steve Hampton (President of the Brewery District CURC).
