August 2019 Events – Heights, featuring O’Niell’s First Official Game Night on August 31st!

Featured Artist of the Month: J. Marlene Worrall

          From July 28th – September 1st, come enjoy the work of our featured artist of the month. J. Marlene Worrall – “The Golden Key” – is back! An accomplished, celebrated visual artist of Albuquerque, as well as a spiritual medium, J. Marlene is a real local treasure. She combines these two gifts to present a hauntingly beautiful art show at our pub this August. But even without context or particular interpretation, her pieces (primarily acrylic on canvas) are truly beautiful, and you won’t want to miss this rare installment. Join J. Marlene as she presents to you her world of “Channeled Automatism Tarot/Oracle paintings.”

These original pieces full of beauty, mystery, and spirituality will be available at our pub from 11am to 12am every day during the show. Individual pieces are always available for sale by cash or check.

August 31st – O’Niell’s First Official Game Night! 

  • Drafts & Drafts – Magic: The Gathering 2020 Core Draft Beer Dinner

Ever wanted to draft the latest Magic: The Gathering core set while enjoying fresh, delicious, premium craft beer? Our Magic-loving managers here at O’Niell’s sure have – but luckily for you, they’ll be sitting this one out and moderating so you can enjoy our pub’s very FIRST adults-only Magic Draft and Beer Dinner Event. It’s good to be grown-up. Registration in advance IS required as this will be a private draft with a guaranteed eight players per pod. Instructions on drafting for first-timers will be provided, but players are encouraged to arrive comfortable with the format, as no mechanics may be explained during the draft itself. 

  • O’Niell’s Game Night - featuring GIANT board games on the patio! All ages welcome.

If a Magic draft on the same night wasn’t enough (it isn’t – not for our hardcore nerd managers), we are also having giant novelty games on the patio for the whole family! But don’t worry, we’re also featuring awesome drinks and specials for children over 21… enjoy Buffalo Trace Kentucky Straight Bourbon or our featured drink for the evening – a dirty martini featuring Wheatley Vodka, a brand-new vodka distilled 10 times at the very same distillery that brings us Buffalo Trace itself. We’ll have giant dice, Jenga, Connect 4 and more – stop by and bring a date or the kids!
