Grab your puppy and head to Jackson 20 in Old Town, Alexandria to celebrate Earth Day at Jackson 20. As Earth Day falls on a Thursday, guests can bring their four-legged friends and enjoy the restaurant’s popular Doggie Happy Hour. On the 22nd, the restaurant will officially unveil “J20 Eco Hour,” where an unusually large selection of canned beers and boxed wines will be available. Now this may not sound particularly classy (slap the bag anyone?) but canned beer is much more eco-friendly than glass, easier to recycle and cheaper to ship. The new beer program will feature $2 “Working Man’s Canned Beer,” with selections like Pabst Blue Ribbon, Schlitz, Iron City Light, Yuengling, Stroh’s Light, and $5 “Craft Canned Beer” featuring Hienniewisse, Mama’s Little Yellow Pils, AVBC Pale Ale, Porkslap Pale Ale, Old Chub Scottish Ale, and Moo Thunder Stout. Boxed Bandit Cabernet or Chardonnay is available $4.

Don’t forget to wash all that beer down with some food! Continue reading
