People often forget that before Donkey Kong was a video-game superstar, he was just some schmuck like you and me, throwing flaming barrels from the rooftops at some Italian guy. So to celebrate those humble beginnings, Hilltop Tavern and Goodwood Brewing are hosting a night full of DK goodness. There will be two arcade systems with original Kong, Donkey Kong Country on the Wii, a special Cinnamon Stout from Goodwood inspired by DK’s flaming barrels and a ticket giveaway for the Arcade Expo (arcaderx.com) coming to town this weekend.
