Guy Fawkes Night Announcement

Pacific Standard and Sixpoint present

Guy Fawkes Night

at Pacific Standard, 82 Fourth Avenue (between St. Mark's and Bergen), Brooklyn,

November 5, 2007, at 8 pm.

Remember remember the fifth of November
Gunpowder, treason, and plot.
I see no reason why gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot...

We at Pacific Standard and Sixpoint think it's high time Americans start remembering and celebrating the most obscure, nerdy, yet coolest holiday in the British Empire, Guy Fawkes Night. Whether or not we're British, Catholic, or Protestant, I think we can all agree that men who try to blow up large buildings should be stopped, and that the successful stopping of these men should be celebrated yearly with beer, toffee, and the destruction of effigies. The uninitiated may find more information on Guy Fawkes Night here:


There will be eight Sixpoint beers on tap and, in honor of England, cask, including a brand new Belgian rye. Traditional Guy Fawkes night food will be available, Guy Fawkes-related music will be played, and Pacific Standard is creating a Guy Fawkes pinata that we'll joyfully maim with batons and golf clubs. In addition, a limited amount of awesome Guy Fawkes paraphernalia—tile coasters and magnets--will be available for purchase with Sixpoint beer at a special package price.

Those who show up before 8 pm can enjoy our $1 off happy hour, and people who bring/wear something Guy Fawkes-related (a mask, t-shirt, doll, whatever) will drink at $1 off all night! There will also be abundant specials on certain kegs, to be determined altogether capriciously by Pacific Standard's owners. If all that isn't good enough for you, you've been in New York too long. So:

Remember, remember, on the fifth of November,
to come to the Standard with cheer,
It is our cause that all Brooklyn jaws
Should be filled with toffee and beer.
