Loving Lakewood: Lumberjack Bash

Tickets for the Lumberjack Bash go on sale at 12 p.m. noon on Monday, Jan. 9, and can be secured at LakewoodAlive.org.  Proceeds will support LakewoodAlive’s programming as we strive to foster and sustain vibrant neighborhoods in Lakewood.  Much like lumberjacks, we at LakewoodAlive are renowned for our work ethic and not afraid to roll up our sleeves and get the job done.

The Lumberjack Bash will feature lumberjack-themed food, drinks, décor and entertainment.  Attendees will be chopping at the bit to consume pancakes and bacon-wrapped sausage links, sample a Blue Ox cocktail, enjoy live music and partake in games and activities fit for a true Lumberjack.  One such activity – the Epic Beard Contest presented by Men’s Cuts – will afford contestants the opportunity to compete for the distinctions of having the best, longest and most unique beards.

A $75 VIP ticket includes all General Admission ticket offerings plus early entrance at 6:30 p.m., complimentary valet parking, access to a special VIP menu, two specialty drink tickets and additional live music and activities.

A $40 General Admission ticket gains you entrance to The Bottlehouse Brewery Lakewood at 7:30 p.m., where you’ll receive brunch-style heavy hors d’oeuvres, one specialty drink ticket and access to all the lumberjack-themed fun.  General Admission ticketholders will also receive complimentary valet parking.

No matter which ticket option you choose, you’ll be so plaid you came. Attending lumberjacks and jills are urged to wear casual, outdoorsy attire: Jeans, plaid flannel, suspenders, winter hats and boots.  Beards (fake or otherwise), hearty appetites and shouts of “Timber!” are strongly-encouraged.

More details regarding the Lumberjack Bash will be unveiled in the coming weeks.  For ongoing updates, please visit LakewoodAlive.org and be sure to act fast once tickets go on sale Jan. 9.
