Pass the bubbly! Blokes & Birds will hold an absolutely fabulous mid-week evening starring the hilarious duo of Patsy and Edina. On Wednesday nights at 8 p.m., the English gastropub Blokes & Birds will screen back-to-back episodes of the British sitcom “Absolutely Fabulous” on mounted flat screen televisions in the lower level. The show, which has a cult-following, regularly features cocktail consumption and cut-downs, which will pair well with Blokes & Birds’ menu of signature craft cocktails (Queen’s Jubilee, Mind the Bollocks, Ol’ Chum and more) and over-the-pond fare. Each guest will receive a complimentary flute of champagne to properly toast the twosome.

Absolutely Fabulous, also known as Ab Fab, is a British sitcom. The series features Saunders as Edina Monsoon, an alcoholic, drug-abusing PR agent who spends her time chasing bizarre fads in a desperate attempt to stay young and hip. Edina is joined in her quest by magazine editor Patsy Stone, her best friend and enabler, whose drug abuse, alcohol consumption, and promiscuity far eclipse Edina’s comparatively mild self-destructive behavior. Despite being a middle-aged, twice-divorced career woman, Edina is reliant upon the support of her daughter, Saffron, a secondary school pupil (and later university student) whose constant care for her mother has left her a bitter cynic. Absolutely Fabulous is ranked as one of the greatest British TV Show of all time.
