In conjunction with the anniversary of the end of an era of sobriety, we’re having our 24th birthday! What a coincidence! It’ll be a Black & White Roaring-Twenties style party so break out your Flapper dresses, Zoot suits and feather boas! Our DJ will keep the party jumpin’ through the Midnight Countdown to Party Time! And starting at 5:00 we’ll have great blast-from-past food specials, crazy drink specials and fun giveaways! So come help us celebrate 24 years as Main Street Café and the anniversary of the end of the era of prohibition!
Join us on Wednesday, March 25th beginning at 4pm to help us Name that Beer! Our “No Name” brew will be on tap and we need you to help us name it. You buy one brew and get one vote! If we choose your name, you’ll get a growler of the “No Name” beer AND bragging rights, too!
Here’s what we can tell you: “No Name” is an IPA. That’s it, nothing more, nothing less.
Join us for the day that EVERYONE is Irish!

The Windham Textile & History Museum needs your support! So, we’re having a Party with the Presidents! Join us for this fundraiser as we partner with local historian, Bev York, for a fun and lighthearted evening of beer, food and history!
Space is limited for this informative discussion about our founding fathers and their beers, food and drink recipes and travels to Willimantic!
Enjoy special menu items created for the occasion and colonial-era drink specials! Plus, we’ll be tapping our Colonial Ale and donating a portion of its sales to the museum!
So join us, George and Abe for a Presidential good time!
