Pizza Lupo’s Garlic Celebration!
No cover | 7-11 p.m.
If garlic didn’t cling to your breath like a Titanic survivor to a lifeboat, it’d be the perfect seasoning. Pizza Lupo’s owners, like any good Italian restaurateurs, are well aware of this. So, they’ve devised this evening of garlic love, featuring garlic-centric dishes and even garlic cocktails. The whole shebang is inspired by the 1980 documentary “Garlic is as Good as Ten Mothers,” in which chefs and food historians espouse their affinity for garlic. Relatable, right? The film will be showing at this event, with a portion of the proceeds going to The Coalition To Stop Gun Violence in honor of those affected by the recent shooting at the Gilroy Garlic Festival. No reservations are necessary to come.
Gravely Trivia Night
Gravely Brewing Co.
No cover | 7-9 p.m.
There has to be a calculus equation that measures the amount of beer one drinks as compared to one’s ability to recall trivial facts. Maybe that will be a question at Gravely’s trivia night. After all, the brewery set out the challenge to see “who wins the battle between ABV and IQ!”
