Ashvegas: The City You Love. The News You Want.Sunday night, the Charlotte-based band Young and In the Way used a Super Soaker to spray  a massive amount of pig’s blood around the backroom music venue at the Lexington Avenue Brewery. The gastropub has been closed for clean-up ever since. The brewery/restaurant/music room is losing thousands of dollars in revenue, and its workers have been idled.

To help LAB get back on its feet, I’m holding a little contest here: leave your most creative name for a beer inspired by the bloodbath, and Ashvegas will give you a $75 gift certificate to the LAB. The point is not to make light of a terribly costly incident, but to help get the place back up on its feet. I haven’t talked to Mike from the LAB yet, but who knows – he might take the winning name and actually put the winning name to a beer.
