Beer Dinner in Jake's American Bar on Friday, October 5

Has anyone else heard of the Beer Dinner on Friday, October 5 at Jake's American Bar at RPR? I received loewshotels email advertising the Beer Dinner, along with PBH's Harbor Nights and HRH's Velvet Sessions. Unfortunately, no price was displayed for the Beer Dinner. There was a number to call for information, but when I called it, the person wasn't sure of the price and suggested I call back after 5pm and speak with the manager.

Has anyone else received the email? Anybody planning on going? It sounds fun to me. I've searched both universalorlando and loewshotels for more information but couldn't find additional information.

Apparently this was originally scheduled for this month but cancelled and rescheduled for October - It was $50.00 but any new info states price TPD.

Thank you, Jessica! Although this sounds fun, $50 is probably more than we're willing to spend. Also, with Friday night being our last night before heading home Saturday morning, we might elect to have our last dinner at The Latin Quarter.

Maybe they are thinking of lowering the $. I think they would sell better if they did.

Latin Quarter sounds like a great way to end a trip though! If you do try the beer dinner would love to hear about it when you return.)

My wife said that we could still do the Beer Dinner, but she's limited on how much she can eat so wouldn't get the $50 out of it. I'll check with the others in the group for their opinion. If we do the Beer Dinner, I'll review it.

Thanks! I received that email earlier today. Although the menu sound good, I don't know if it justifies the $55 price tag. I suspect that we'll wait until that Friday to decide. No benefit of having a reservation, except that it might sell out, but if it does, that means that it just wasn't meant to be.

I saw it on FB. Their last post about it was on 9/13 and it still says "Details Coming Soon!"

Disappointed that it conflicts with our RIP Tour. We would totally go!
