Dec. 23: Ace-in-the-Hole Closing Party

After 11 years in business, the casual, relaxation-inducing Ace-in-the-Hole Pub in Graton is closing, and with it goes the hearts of many regular drinkers, eaters and music makers. Sales for Ace Hard Cider are booming, and the production is moving to a larger, publess facility across town. Not one to go out with a whimper—the Ace is, after all, one of the few venues in the North Bay with live music seven nights a week—the jolly spot on the corner of Graton Road and Gravenstein Highway hosts a free-for-all Beatles sing-along on its last night of pulling pints. Christmas can be the cruelest time, and seeing the Ace go down would normally be crushing, but sources tell us they’re planning on staying open long past closing for the big boozy Beatle blowout at the end of a long and winding road on Wednesday, Dec. 23, at the Ace-in-the-Hole Pub. 3100 Gravenstein Hwy., Graton. 6pm–whenever. Free. 707.829.1101.Gabe Meline
