Bear Night at Preservation Pub
10pm, 948 Main St.
Grrr… Get the new year started right with this ongoing monthly party organized by the Buffalo Bears for the big boys and the men who love ‘em. January’s theme? Back to basics. It means different things to different people, perhaps, but the idea is to start again. Clean slate. It’s a jeans and t-shirt scene… or maybe a flannel if the cold persists, which you can always remove if you get overheated inside. Tunes delivered by DJ Ben.
