Breweries in Northwest Arkansas are getting creative. Last week we talked about a night of dueling bonfires at Saddlebock, this time… a special event to get you over “the most depressing day of the year.” That’s right… A group of academics in the UK calculated the most depressing day of the year using a formula of weather conditions, debt level, time since Christmas, time since new year’s resolutions have been broken, low motivational levels. That day is typically the third Monday of January, which this year is on the seventeenth. Well, Crisis Brewing Company in Fayetteville wants to get you over that hump by hosting “Blue Sunday.” It happens on Sunday from two to eight p-m. They have several specials happening that day to make sure you are “okay” in what can be a depressing time.
