What's up in TC in early March?

Hi,

We're always in TC for the Ice Man every year, and a group of us were considering road tripping up for one of the first couple weekends in March. The crowds of the Ice Man make that weekend so much fun. What kind of crowds would we find on an early March Friday and Saturday (at places like Right Brain, 7 Monks, North Peak, etc.)? Anything special going on in town either of those 2 dates? Any information would be appreciated.

First weekend in March is the end of TC Restaurant Week and also the Suds and Snow event at Timber Ridge. Second weekend, there isn't much happening as far as special events go. The places you mention, however, are pretty busy on weekends in general.

Both 7 Monks and North Peak are participating in Restaurant Week, which would carry into the first weekend in March.

Check here for more information about that event:

But either weekend is still a fairly quiet period here in TC, so I doubt you'd have much of an issue with "crowds" at any of those locales.

Thanks Mongo. We're actually OK with crowds, as long as we can get our drinks when we want them. We just didn't want it to be so quiet up there that the bars would be lame. Doesn't sound like it.

You're welcome, dldkag!

Depending on what you're seeking, I think there's more of a convivial bar vibe at 7Monks than at the other places (admission: I've yet to go to the relocated RightBrain). And 7Monks has a staggering array of beers on tap (and in bottles) available to you. The food's not bad at 7Monks either, too.

That said, of the various beer-focused establishments in TC, I like the food best at North Peak and least at The Filling Station (out by the library). Throw in Mackinaw Brewing (downtown), Jolly Pumpkin (on the Mission peninsula), and, of course, Right Brain, and you have the makings of a real lost weekend.

Not that that's a bad thing...
