Dogfish Head Dragons and Yum Yums

With Record Store Day And Earth Day happening this week there are dozens of events happening all around town. While most of these, unsurprisingly are based solely around the Earth and record stores, some have tie-ins with food and drink, which means just one more reason to pig out around Indy. 

Dorman Street Countdown to Record Store Day

Wednesday, April 18 starting 6 p.m. bring your own vinyl to Dorman Street and sign up to have your records played on a Dogfish Head record player. Music will be going from 8 p.m. until midnight and $4 Dogfish Head beers will be pouring throughout the night. 

Plus, for longtime Dorman Street fans $2 tacos are making a comeback as part of this party. Unlimited $2 veggie or meat tacos are pulling a Lionel Richie and will be available all night long.
