Because we’ve been around awhile, we can remember when the Nomad World Pub first opened. Not remember well, because the Nomad was one of the first early great beer selections before the beer craze and that has contributed to many joyous, fuzzy memories from the West Bank bar. Their Anniversary week ramps up for the weekend, with Friday featuring Black Market BrassField Trip (with Lucy Michelle!), Gabriel Douglas & Super Friends, and the one and only DJ Shannon Blowtorch. Then Saturday it’s a bunch of footie on the tellies and Grrrl Scout: Queer Dance Night. On Sunday they’ve got ten specialty beers from ten different breweries with ten different DJs. Bananas! We’re glad to see Mr. Todd Smith and his bar make it to this milestone! Friday, Saturday, Sunday. Free. —Taylor Carik
