Tuesday, Nov. 18's Lowdown

By unanimous decision, The Palm Lounge wins Tuesday. Ring the bell.

To say nothing of being Eureka’s air hockey destination, tonight the Eureka Inn’s cocktail haven will be graced by Portland Americana quintet Hook and Anchor. And do you know what other band also boasted five (♂: 3; ♀: 2) members? Well, Fleetwood Mac, conveniently enough. Thus, while H&A note in their promo material for tonight’s show that they’ll also drop some original material in your ears, they more importantly promise to play, in its entirety, Rumours, the 1977 album so important that Fleetwood Mac took time off from their orgy to record it. You can go your own way, indeed. 

And when your continued cries to “don’t … stop … thinking about tomorrow” leave your throat a little dry, mosey on over to the bar. This night at the Palm Lounge features the latest in a series of county-wide tap cameo appearances from the upstart Humboldt Cider Company. A quick update on HCC: After taking home the People’s Choice Award at StrangeBrew earlier this month, the ambitious apple smashers are in crunch mode. They only have five days to make their self-imposed Kickstarter goal. So if you’d consistently enjoy a fruity, locally produced liquid in your world, head to this link and pony up.
