This week on the "Everything Show!"
The “Everything Show!” is brought to you by Eglin Federal Credit Union! Where members matter most!
🍻Alys Beach Firkin Fete
Alys Beach has started a new event this year - the Firkin Fete is all about unique beers, craft cocktail creations and exclusive fine wines.
Festivities start on Friday with a Grayton Beer Company’s taproom with tastings, live music and delicious bites. The big event is happening this Saturday, October 26th on the Kelly Green at Alys Beach and everything kicks off at 6:30 pm.
They’ll have several different breweries all come out and they’ll be serving their brews out of FIRKINS - which is where the second and final part of fermentation happens when making beer. (That’s where the name of the event was born.)
If you’re not interested in tappin’ the firkin, they will have craft cocktails, bourbon tastings and wine for you too. Friday night’s event is $75 per person and Saturday is $100.
🏍Stunt Show at Emerald Coast Harley Davidson
You need to check out the stunt show that’s happening this Saturday, October 26 at Emerald Coast Harley Davidson in Fort Walton.
Christina Billingsworth has been known as the “Queen of the Wheelie” and “The Goddess of Burnouts” and she’ll be doing three shows that will make your jaw drop with some of the daring stunts she does on these bikes.
👉Shows are at noon, 2 and 4 and are free to attend. This event is part of their weekend Bike Fest, so if you want more info about all they have going on, head to emeraldcoastbikefest.com
