No more games. It's time to get real with you guys. There's a lot of f*ckbois and f*ckgirls out there who still haven't recognized that their shenanigans do have consequences. Luckily, we at the Power of Positive Drinking appreciate the patience and talent it takes to discretely but unequivocally tell these clowns to go eat the appropriate amount of horse feces. So we'd like to gather our favorite comedians together to honor everything from side eye to slight, awkward laughter. Come join us for a night craft beer and laughter at those who are beneath us. And remember: never let anyone get away unscathed.
Doors Open: 5pm
Comedy Show: 7:30pm
SEATING IS LIMITED AND ON A FIRST-COME, FIRST-SERVED BASIS.

Sweet merciful crap are we glad 2016 is done. We were starting to worry that none of us were going to make it out alive. But let's not get too excited yet. 2017 has been grinning and cackling maniacally for the last month or two now, just waiting for us to let down our guard. So we at The Power of Positive Drinking are doing what we do best: bringing together some of the funniest people we know to help everyone laugh in the face of what will hopefully not turn out to be another cruel, 365-day long joke. If it does turn out to be another evil bastard of a year, we at least hope it won't take any more of the good ones.
Bar opens: 5pm
Show starts: 7:30pm
AND BOY DO WE HAVE QUITE THE SHOW IN STORE FOR YOU! SOME REAL STARS OF STAGE AND SCREEN ARE COMING OUT FOR THIS ONE!
