August 24th – Solar Eclipse Cat

Cats. Solar Eclipses. Together?? Total-ly awesome.  On Thursday, August 24th at 7pm, three days after our eyes turn to mush, let’s meet at Cold Fire Brewing and shape around the cat’s fir.  Solar Eclipse Cat only comes around every 99 year. You don’t want to miss this! You may even want the t-shirt. :P
