Bartenders and musicians have a lot in common. Both groups are always the focus of everyone’s attention, both deal with a lot of people who want something from them and both are known to put on a show. Kristen Marlo wears all that and black eyeliner. The longtime singer/songwriter also pours craft beer and cider at Peaks and Pints bottle shop, taproom and restaurant in Tacoma’s Proctor District. And, while you’re smiling over her caricature of you she’ll chug your Georgetown Bodhizafa IPA and quip, “You’re welcome.” Off shift, off course.
It’s a mystery why Marlo doesn’t stomp on her bar towel and tour the states squashing the Norahs and the Avrils and the Vanessa Carltons and the Michelle Branches with her astounding vocal range and delirious songwriting prowess and soul-healing laughter. Then again, Marlo wouldn’t be able to serenade all the Valentine’s Day lovers and haters at 6 p.m., Wednesday, Feb. 14 at Peaks and Pints. She wouldn’t pour Georgetown Brewing’s Lisa’s The Sun Is Trying To Kill Me Chocolate Stout with 76 pounds of Theo Chocolate, Georgetown’s 18lb Imperial Porter and other craft delights from the Seattle brewery that night. And, the opportunity to prank Georgetown Brewing sales rep Garrett on Valentine’s Day would only be in her dreams (or nightmare for him).
But, she’s all ours. Therefore, you can enjoy all the Georgetown craft beer while Marlo’s magical music swirls around your head on the most Heart day of the year at Peaks and Pints.
VALENTINE’S NIGHT WITH KRISTIN MARLO AND GEORGETOWN BREWING, 6 p.m., Wednesday, Feb. 14, Peaks and Pints, 3816 N. 26th St., Basecamp Proctor, Tacoma, no cover
