This Memorial Day weekend, there’s no need to hightail it out of the city to Nantucket for Figawi! City Tap House is transforming into the “Fort Point Nantucket” with Cisco Brewers. For three straight days and nights, Cisco Brewers will turn City Tap’s coveted patio into a replica of its microbrewery on Nantucket complete with a 60-foot flag celebrating everything Americana, a branded Cisco tent, lawn games, seafood specials and summer sips.
Featuring live music each day, revelers can test their hand at cornhole in a beer-fueled competition. (For those looking to not enter a bloodbath, there will be washers, giant Jenga and more.) From the kitchen, large gulf shrimp cocktail ($4 for 9; add a shrimp for $2 each), New England clam chowder ($10/$13) and the lobster rolls will be blissfully stuffed in a buttery roll ($23). On the liquid side, there will be icy buckets of Cisco’s Whales Tale Pale Ale and Gripah grapefruit IPA (5 cans/$25); pints of Cisco’s CranTUCKET Brut Rosé IPA, Shark Tracker and Grey Lady ($7 each); and a foursome of cocktails including the Blue Haired Lady with Grey Lady and 888 Blueberry ($10); the Figawi Wowie with 888 Cranberry, mint, soda water and lemonade ($10); a Blueberry Lemonade with 888 Blueberry, soda water and lemonade ($10); and a Madaket Mule with 888 Cranberry, ginger beer and lime ($10).
Here’s the lineup
SATURDAY, MAY 25:
The Royal Furs will be entertaining with a live set from 1pm to 5pm while summer’s socialites celebrate the release of Cisco’s CranTUCKET Brut Rosé IPA and don their best “Nantucket red” for a chance to win a prize and show it off in a Nantucket-inspired photo station. DJ Sprino will shut it down with the latest hit songs from 9pm to close.
SUNDAY, MAY 26:
City Tap’s Sunday Acoustic Sunday series returns for the season! Whip out your leis and hula skirts for an island-style Sunday funday over the holiday weekend featuring live music by singer-songwriter Victoria Kelly (with sounds reminiscent of Sara Bareilles) from 6pm-9pm and a Pineapple Express cocktail with 888 Vanilla, ginger ale, pineapple and lime ($10).
MONDAY, MAY 27:
Holiday revelers will balance their time between sipping, supping and social sporting at this MDW “Shuckfest” on City Tap’s fire-pit lined patio complete with $1 oysters and live music by the Bonus Cat Band from 1pm to 4pm
