Border Brewing Company’s anniversary & other weekend possibilities

weekend-021916Got to love beer-a-versaries. Border Brewing Company (406 E 18th Street) will celebrate its first anniversary on Sunday from 12 to 8 p.m. They’ll have giveaways (Pie Hole will give away free meat pies to the first 75 folks in the door), as well as a few special brews — an anniversary spring IPA and a test batch of firepit porter.

Think of it as Kansas City’s version of a Feast of Strength contest. The Foundry at McCoy’s (424 Westport Road) is hosting a Big “Donkey” Stout Day on Saturday from 12 p.m. to 3 a.m. Among the more than dozen Imperial Stouts will be Bell’s 30th Anniversary, Firestone Walker Velvet Merkin, Goose Island Bourbon County and Perennial Sump 2014.

Blip Roasters is looking to get back in business after a fire damaged their cafe in the West Bottoms. There is a party Saturday at 3 p.m. at Hickory Union Moto (1026 Hickory Street) to raise funds.

The Bloomsbury Bistro is closing Saturday. The restaurant has ben operating for 15 years in the Mission Road Antique Mall (4101 West 83rd Street). Snag a bowl of roasted chicken noodle soup or a classic Waldorf Salad between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m.

Want to ease the pain of learning pilates and yoga? Pop-Up Pilates with Thrive Pilates & Movement Studio kicks off a monthly series at Crane Brewing (6515 Railroad Street, Raytown). The class begins at 10 a.m. and lasts an hour. The proceeds will benefit Water.org. Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door.

End your weekend with a bit of service. The Open Table will be delivering sandwiches and winter clothes to the homeless on Sunday night. They’ll bring the sandwiches, you bring the gloves and socks. The social/civic group is gathering at Second Presbyterian Church (318 E 55th Street) at 6:30 p.m. and will be dining together at Chuy’s on the Plaza after distributing the food and winter clothing.
