Announcing the 11W Spring Banger

By 11W Staff on April 3, 2012 at 1:00p
THE 11W SPRING BANGER - SATURDAY, APRIL 21st - 7PMBernard's Tavern - 7pm / Benefiting Operation Feed.

What's a "banger", you ask?

That's a great question. Depending on where you live, it could mean a firecracker, a jalopy, or even one that enjoys Slayer.

Whatever it means, DJ uses it constantly, on just about any noun he encounters. It's not a William Buford profile piece, it's a William Buford banger. It's not a flight across the Atlantic, it's a banger across the pond.

It's a one-word fun-amplifier.

So, after soaking up Urban Meyer's first spring game in Columbus, please join us Saturday night at 7pm for suds, food and banging times at Bernard's Tavern in the Short North [Map].

We've partnered with the Mid-Ohio Food Bank, so if you show up with an essential food item, like chili, canned fruit, tuna or peanut butter, you'll get a wristband. This wristband shows everyone that you not only care about the hungry, but that you also enjoy saving money on your tab. 

Got it? Good.

We'll see you Saturday the 21st.

WHO: You. Your friends. Their friends.
WHAT: The 11W Spring Banger
WHEN: Saturday, April 21st @ 7pm
WHERE: Bernard's Tavern - 630 N High St, Columbus, OH [Map]
WHY: To collect food for the Mid-Ohio Foodbank [Shopping List]. Oh, and to have a good time.

Oh hell, how many Marionaires are you bringing? In my experience, there can't be any more than five Marionaires drinking in one location outside of Marion. Otherwise, the chances of a criminal act being comissioned go up by about 75%.

Is that 71% DJ, 1% for each additional Marionaire?

You've obviously never been to Marion if you think I'm odds-on-favorite to commission a crime. #mightbeadarkhorsetho

I'll be at the game with my Dad and two stepbrothers, so I doubt we'll make it to the banger.  However, I do intend to make it to ETB this Fall!

This is a great idea!  I may try to make the trek up there too.  I'll see my wife and I have any plans.  It would be awesome to meet people.  I definitely will be attending ETB this year as well.  I was upset I had to miss it last year.

Mrs featherbottom wants to put a banger in your mouth.

Fundamentals are a crutch for the talentless.

odds are there will be 10+ marionaires. Riot gear=necessary lol... Also my friend thinks this is a gay bar since its in the short north. I personally have nothing against gays, however, I told him its advertised on a sports forum and i dont expect a lot. Anyone with insight on the type of bar this is?

so are there actually any specials for bringing the food? What does the wristband actually get you?

Don't give up... Don't ever give up.

I'm more of a rasher man myself. Sounds like fun but can't make it. Good cause though. I give monthly to the MO Foodbank.
