BEER DINNER: For every dish, there is a beer. Sometimes that beer is a brown ale, sometimes a stout and sometimes a lager. And sometimes you find a place like the Wood-n-Tap in Southington, which is holding a 5-course Brooklyn Beer Dinner tonight, pairing their dishes with the Brooklyn Beer line. Tickets are $45. The event starts at 6:30 p.m.
3/30: Beer Dinner, Uncle Kracker and Michael Bolton
By Beren Jones
UNCLE KRACKER: Uncle Kracker left the turntables he spun for Kid Rock in order to release his own solo album “Double Wide.” Kracker went for a combination of funky post-grunge rock with a bit of hip-hop added in for good measure. The double platinum album hanging on his wall proved it worked, and now he’ll be at Toad’s Place tonight to do his latest, “Happy Hour.” Tickets are $25. Doors open at 8 p.m.
MICHAEL BOLTON: If Uncle Kracker isn’t your style, the Warner Theatre in Torrington might work. Tonight they have one of the few people who can claim to have sold more than 53 million records, multiple Grammy’s for best male vocalist, and probably the only one who has sung with Luciano Pavarotti and Ray Charles, wrote for Bob Dylan, Lady Gaga, Barbra Streisand and KISS, played for B.B. King and been played by Kanye West. Tickets to the show will run you $45, though $95 will get you the show and a meet and greet with the artist. The show starts at 7:30 p.m.
