Fall Is In The Air

Do you feel that? The crisp air just when the sun kisses the horizon or when you find refuge in a shaded area... Fall is upon us! This means pumpkin beers, apple ciders and our famous Pork Schnitzel. Yes, it's back after a VERY popular demand. We're offering it as a sandwich and as a platter. We even have our tasty Reese's Peanut Butter Pie in right now. Haven't tried it? It's decadent and worth every calorie. As the temperature drops you will see more Hot Toddys and Flaming Moes being concocted at the bars. Our staff is just as excited as you are about this time of year too!! Halloween decorations are already starting to go up and we're all trying to figure out what to wear as a costume. Feel free to help us out with ideas!! For now I'm going to get back to my Moscow Mule and enjoy the weather outside.  Until then.

Cheers!

BABIES!

You may have heard the running joke that pregnancy is contagious at the pub.. haha Don't worry!! It's not!! But a few of our staff members have become pregnant this year and two already have given birth. Another is about to pop out twins!! Haley, one of our bartenders, gave birth to a handsome boy a few months ago. Lena, our manager, gave birth to a beautiful girl 4 weeks ago. Our bartender, Young's wife, is expecting twins (boy AND girl) in a month and a half. It's a whole new generation of Pub employees!! haha 

Leading Ladies Happy Hour

Thursdays is our Leading Ladies Happy Hour from 5-8pm! Not only is it a great way to mix and mingle with other fabulous ladies, but it also supports a GREAT cause! Serene Harbor, a Domestic Violence Center is our partnered charity for this weekly event where they receive a portion of our proceeds for the night from specialty drinks like "The Serene Harbor Pitcher". That's right, we made a drink so good that we turned it into a pitcher that is exclusively for the event so make sure to give it a try.

We also have the sweetest radio host around, Elaina from 107.1 wA1A coming out every other week. Her and the A1A gang do random giveaways and contest throughout the night so it's A LOT of fun. There's even a section for photos with crazy props like tiaras and lays.  

Want to shop? Every week we have a different local vendor come out and showcase their items. Lots of cute earrings, necklaces, purses, hats, clothes and who knows what else in the future.... These vendors also donate a % of their sales to Serene Harbor. So the more you shop and indulge, the more you help Serene Harbor.

It's getting hot!

Where did summer come from? It's soo hot! Good thing we have the new Smirnoff Sorbet & Confectionary lines and they are INCREDIBLE! Low calorie sorbets are still full of flavor (I love the cucumber spa tini) while the confectionary line is sinfully delicious (Adult Root beer float anyone?) We've been getting a GREAT response from everyone on them too! Have you tried any of them yet? Next time you're in check out the new cocktails in our libation menu. 

Cheers!

Farewell Steve

We just wanted to take a minute to say goodbye to one of our managers and friends, Stephen Hoyt. He finished his last week with us before moving on to the Fat Snook, a fine dining establishment that we highly recommend. There will no longer be a pony tail to greet you at the front door- he actually cut it off and we have pictures! We miss him greatly. However, the Pub will continue to move forward and serve you nothing but the best in fresh squeezed cocktails, healthy Pub fare & spectacular customer service. :) So come on in and relax, the rest of the gang is still here!

NEW BEERS!

With the changing of seasons we thought why not change up our bottle beer list? We've added a few extra pale ale's plus switching out beers from all of our categories. Today I tried the Leinenkugel Summer Shandy and WOW!! It was very refreshing and perfect for this time of year!! We're also bringing in a few of beers from Oskar Blue's Brewery from Colorado. These beers are actually served in the can.

Now, now, now.. Some may question the idea of canned beer with thoughts like, "But I've been taught to think canned beer is bad. What about the metallic taste?" Think of draft beer which is stored in a metal keg. So essentially canned beer is like a mini keg. :) Plus when it comes to storage canned beer is able to better protect beer from light and oxygen. Cans are airtight and oxygen-free. With bottled beer oxygen can leach into the bottled beer under the bottle caps thus affecting the taste. So embrace your inner outdoorsman. Canned beer doesn't break and gives you a great taste!! 

Have you tried any of our new beers yet? If so please tell us what you like!! We love getting feedback!! Plus if you haven't tried SWEETWATER 420 (our rotational draft) then do it!! The Georgia Brewery makes some really tasty beers and the 420 is one not to miss.

Cheers!

March Madness

March Madness isn't just for basketball fans. In the bar business March Madness means Spring Break, Saint Patrick's Day AND our 8th Anniversary!! With all these different events going on there's so much to do at Mainstreet Pub.

Saturday, March 2nd we are throwing a Spring Break Kickoff Party with live music from Reggae Juice, DJs, Jello Shots & more!! Our drink specials will be things like Loaded Coronas & $4 Reyka Vodka Cocktails. Our staff may even be in beach wear.. :)

Saint Patricks Day falls on a Sunday this year so yes we will be open ALL DAY Saturday AND Sunday!! That's March 16th & 17th folks!! Live music, street festival, drink specials and WHISKEY! 

Our most anticipated event is our 8th Year Anniversary Party on Saturday, March 9th. We'll have stations set throughout the whole Pub so you can sample our signature drinks and food. Music will be provided by The Hitmen and the event runs from 6-9pm. We are so grateful for your support and thank you with our whole heart for not just being our customer, but our friends and family. We could not be where we are today without you. 

Beat the clock and beat Valentine's Day!

I hate Valentine's Day. Seriously. And I'm happily married! BUT that doesn't mean I want to spend my night in a crowded restaurant spending lots of money on a FIXED menu. (I really hate fixed menus) Nope! Instead I'd much rather have some apps, drinks and hang out with friends. Then come the next day hit up the stores for that 50% off candy! :)

That is why at Mainstreet Pub we celebrate ANTI-Valentine's Day! Our prices are the same, there is no fixed menu for dinner (or lunch) and we have enough seating to accommodate all of you. :) Plus come night time we have a DJ, drink specials and the Sweet Revenge Girls making an appearance. So if you're looking for something to do with or without someone, stop by Mainstreet Pub.

Don't worry, it's not really going to end.. We'll be celebrating life on Christmas night!! We open at 7pm and Christmas is actually a pretty busy night for us! Everyone is home for the holidays and can't wait to get their hands on a Orange Crush. What is your favorite holiday activity?

Our favorite thing to do around the holidays is cater holiday parties! Last week we had one or two EVERY DAY! It was awesome and you're not too late to jump on the bandwagon! Call us today for booking any party- we do them year around!

All kidding and shameless promotion aside we want to say thank you. Thank you to our customers who help let us continue to do what we love- hospitality. Most of us have been with Mainstreet Pub for years and we are a big family. Coming to see us with a big smile, a funny joke or even on your bad days because you know we'll help make it better-- well it matters the world to us because you think of us as family too. So have a wonderful holiday and know you're always welcome at Mainstreet Pub.

Part of the family

Mainstreet Pub has been a staple in Downtown for 7 ½ years. We have seen Downtown grow into a thriving nightlife and are so proud to be a part of it. If you’ve been to Mainstreet Pub then you know how much pride we take into creating our cocktails. All the fruit in our drinks are fresh squeezed. That’s right, juicer on the bar with a bowl of fruit being squeezed right in front of you kind of fresh squeezed. This makes for amazing margaritas and our famous Orange Crush.

We also take pride in our food. Next time you’re in try our signature slow cooked Roast Beef Sandwich served on a warm Kummelweck bun. Or for the lighter fare one of our brand new salads.

Our owners really put in a lot of heart when building Mainstreet Pub. Our 3 distinctive bars are great for not only private parties, but night life as well. Are you feeling Mojitos in the Tiki Bar? An Old Fashion from our Whiskey Bar? Or maybe a dirty martini from our upstairs Lava Bar. No matter what atmosphere you crave, we got it.

Mainstreet Pub aims to appease all your senses from sight, smell, taste to sound. We have nightly live entertainment from acoustic duos to DJs. Some local, some from out of the state. Either way, all your senses will be pleased.

This season we will be serving up great food and drink specials so be sure not to miss it. After all, you are our family and we wouldn’t want to spend the holidays with anyone else. So come on in and say hi, try an appetizer and have a drink at Mainstreet Pub!
