Free beer!

I knew that would get your attention.

Please come out tomorrow night to Tulip for the return of "Sofistica: A Night For Grown-Ups."

Regular readers of my and Doug Arellanes' blog should know what this is about. "Sofistica" is a night of music, food, drinks and overall good times featuring the exquisite aural selection skills of DJ DougieGyro (that's Doug) playing Latin electronica, good old bossa nova standards, and other swank stuff with a laid-back (and grown-up) West Coast vibe -- whatever suits the mood.

The idea is that if you want to make a night of it, but your time's too precious to spend in a sweaty club alongside a crowd of teenagers, come to Tulip on a Friday night. Music starts around 10 p.m. UPDATE: Prague.tv could not have put it any better.

We launched this a couple months ago but with the football championships combined with bad weather and a few cancellations, it sort of petered out. Now we're back with a vengeance.

Anyway, about that free beer. The code word is "blog." If you say "blog" to the staff, they've been instructed to give you one free beer. (Just so this doesn't get out of control, I reserve the right to quiz any blog-sayers on what the hell they're talking about, i.e. to make sure they actually read this blog.) UPDATE: If you actually have a blog, I'll give you two free beers, three if you mention it on your blog. That's how corrupt I am.

More immediately -- if you can't make it tomorrow, and even if you can, come tonight. There's a rising talent named Vasek Havelka, performing under the name Selfbrush. He's been making the rounds playing alt-country and indie-rock -styled originals and he'll be strumming away at Tulip tonight.

By the way, if you have trouble getting through for reservations on the Tulip land line, call the mobile at 775 224 930. Cesky Telecom says there was an "error" in the line somewhere, resulting in a phone that never rings and can't call out. Just what a restaurant needs, I know.

The address is Opatovicka 3, a couple blocks south of the National Theatre.
