Festival of Manliness II

browns festival of manliness 2013 logoBrown's is once again hosting The Festival of Manliness -- "a festival devoted to all things manly" on January 20. The event is a wild game beer dinner with cigars, drawings that include a European beer trip, and the NFC championship game on the big screen in Rev Hall.

On the menu for the dinner: "Duck 'n Boar Salad, Whiskey Porter Braised Red Deer Osso Bucco, Llama Ribeye Steaks with Rosemary Parmesan Crusted Fingerling Potatoes and Salted Caramel Bourbon Cheesecake."

Tickets are $75 person. It's a benefit for Pints for Prostates, which encourages prostate cancer screenings.

And because this question came up last year, from the press release: "Women are more than welcome to attend."

Do the cigars have to go outside or a special smoking room? I can't imagine watching the game with lots of cigar smoke - and I even like cigars.

The cigars will be smoked on the back deck until after dinner, then guest may smoke them inside. Last year there was adequate ventilation - but it's definitely a cigar event!

A perfect circle! The participants will need prostate cancer screenings after eating all that meat!

WHAT KIND OF MAN EATS WELL DONE MEAT?
NICE STUPID STUDY SCIENCE.
