Pints for Pups an SPCA Fundraiser at Rogues'

We love beer. We love dogs. They go together like peanut butter and jelly.
We even make dog biscuits from our spent brewing grain, aka Brewscuits. $1 from the sale of every bag benefits the Tompkins SPCA. Every year we plan a fundraiser for our Tompkins SPCA, and this year's event will bring our two favorite things together, beer and dogs.
We've decided on Thursday, February 21, 6 - 9 pm on the first floor of the inn and our brew house.  There'll be six local micro brewers pouring samples of their craft brews, including the Rogues' Harbor Brewing Co, Roosterfish Brewing, Bandwagon Brews, Cortland Beer, Bacchus Brewing and Wagner Valley Brewing. Yum. We'll be pouring our latest Brewer's Choice, American Barley Wine Style Beer , for the first time that evening as well as offering tours of our brew house.
Thursdays are Live Music Nights at Rogues' too; so there will be live music in the brew house by Space Train and live music in our pub by Mike Thuesen. There'll be tastings and auctions in both locations, too.
There will be a silent auction that I can never resist with goodies from The Jewelbox, Treleaven Winery, Mastercraft Framing, The People's Market, Ithaca Agway, and more.
We'll be serving dinner as always that evening and 10% of our dinner sales will be donated to the SPCA.
Tickets (aka wrist bands) will be a $15 donation benefiting the SPCA available at the door or in advance at the SPCA and the Rogues' Harbor Inn.
Join us to raise a glass and toast our two favorite things: beer and dogs. With your help (and by help I mean sampling beer) we'll exceed funds raised last year...$2,000+ !

Valentine's Day 2013 at the Rogues' Harbor Inn, Ithaca

Valentine's Day is Thursday, February 14. Mark it on your calendar guys. This is important.
This is your moment to shine. It doesn't take too much effort to make the day special- you just have to remember which day. Take your sweet heart to dinner, maybe buy a rose or a shiny object (we all love shiny objects..). But, do something. We're here to help.
Our big plans for Valentine's Day are all in the works and it's a bright day in an otherwise cold, grey month in the Finger Lakes. We have our economical weekday winter rate of $109 available for the B and B rooms that evening. So have a few glasses of wine with dinner by the fire and then just walk upstairs to your elegant room. We can even arrange to have flowers and chocolate waiting for you.
Dinner can be 4 courses or just a quick bite and a pint. It's all up to you.Chef Jeff and Chef Andy enjoy the day and they love creating specials to offer that evening and throughout the weekend. Their dinner specials will be offered Thursday, February 14 - Saturday, February 16.
Just remember Valentine's Day, February 14, we'll do the rest.

We'll be offering our Wednesday discount on growler fills, too $7.50 for a 2 pint fill and $15 for a 4 pint fill. We're serving our chili in bread bowls, on sliders, on 1/2 pound burgers, on potato skins...good rib stickin', foot ball watchin', all american food. It's all available for take out, too.  We're serving from 3 - 9 pm. Here it is:
