#PlaneGang Hall of Fame


Are you a member of the #planegang? Do you want to be? Of course you do.

When you find a bar and people you love, you support them…hard. If you’re a part of the Public School/Banks Ave family, you get a tattoo of a paper plane. So that’s what we’re celebrating, the people who love the plane.

If you’re not in the gang, no worries, Sailor Jerry is giving away 3 #planegang tattoos to be done by the fabulous Integrity Alliance folks in Asheville.

If you’re already part of this group of rowdy kids, show up and let me take your photo, it’ll end up on the Banks Ave Wall of Fame!

Deets on the flier below!

A Crafty Hour Recap


I just spent the last 3 hours with a table full of women, wrapping wreaths, painting sparrows and drinking Sailor Jerry and it was fantastic!

We teamed up with the super sweet and super creative Stephanie from Crowned Sparrow Company to make Sailor Jerry inspired wreaths and jewelry. Our beautiful attendees got to be creative with colors and paints and everyone made something really unique! I’m super proud of how the event turned out and can’t wait to do it again (be on the look out for one in June- hint hint).

Check out a couple of the photos below to see the amazing time we had. HUGE thanks to Heist Brewery for hosting us and letting us throw felt everywhere!

Rural Hill Scottish Festival


Guys, did you know that the Rural Hill Scottish Festival was happening this weekend 4/16-4/17) in Huntersville? No, well now you do! I’ve never been and I am super excited to witness the Loch Norman Highland Games too, seriously, who wouldn’t want to see an axe throwing competition or a rowdy match of tug-of-war?! What’s more? There’s a Whiskies of the World tasting happening twice each day (1:30p/3:30p)! We’re super excited because folks will get to taste all of the goodies like Monkey Shoulder, Macallan and Grant’s!

Negroni Week 2016


It’s back y’all! Who’s excited?

If you aren’t familiar with Negroni Week, I’ll fill you in…

It’s really a simple way for you and your favorite watering hole to give back to your community. Your bar picks a non-profit, you drink a Negroni at said watering hole, who then donates a portion of the proceeds to the charity. Simple as that. I’ve heard a few of our homies are participating, so expect to see some updates from us about Dogwood Southern Table, Heist Brewery and Davidson Street Public House!!

Here’s the deal: June 6-12, you can find participating bars in your area HERE!!

Other details and stats can be found HERE!!
