Is 8am too early to drink beer? The folks at Goldhorn Brewery in the East 55th and St. Clair neighborhood of Cleveland, Ohio, and their friends at the newly opened Bigmouth Donut Company don’t seem to think so.
Tomorrow (Saturday February 10th), Goldhorn will open at 8am to help revelers with their pre-Kurentovanje parade needs, serving up donuts, “Dossants” (cross between a donut and a croissant), cold brew coffee samples, craft beer, and more.
And exactly what is Kurentovanje? It’s a Slovenian Mardi Gras held in the weeks leading up to Lent. The Cleveland festival, in it’s sixth year and with roots in the old world, features a winter’s end parade, Slovenian food and drink, cultural performances, and a dozen Kurents (enormous mythical Slovenian monsters are meant to scare winter away and welcome spring).
