A night out on the town can celebrate the end of the week, recognize the end of bachelorhood, and help local babysitters pay off the mortgage on their bike streamers. Mix up weekend habits with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 toward entry costs, food, and wine at SILO'S, located at historic Napa Mills in downtown Napa. Today's deal must be used on a night with a cover charge for an event and must be redeemed by reservation.
SILO'S fills melodic voids with performances by local and nationally recognized artists and coats throats with bottled bliss from a number of Carneros and Napa Valley wineries. Friday and Saturday nights, live jazz, blues, rock, reggae, and Motown acts inspire involuntary gyrations on the dance floor with a cover charge ($10–$20 per show) to prevent exuberant octopi from clogging dancing lanes. Upcoming acts include the British Invasion tribute act The Who Too on Saturday, April 16, and the classic-rock cover experts of Renegade on Saturday, April 30, playing the songs of Journey, REO Speedwagon, and other '70s and '80s acts.
An extensive selection of local wines lubricates conversations, including the Cuvaison Estate Wines 2007 Carneros Pinot Noir ($11 a glass), the Robert Biale 2008 Black Chicken Zinfandel ($18 a glass), and the Silverado Vineyards 2007 Napa Valley Chardonnay ($10 a glass). Carbonation-crazed patrons opt for hop-filled drafts from the Napa Smith Brewery ($5+), and empty stomachs indulge in orders of chips and salsa ($4.50), artisan cheese plates with fruit, nuts, and a baguette ($14.95), or a selection from SILO's cornucopia of vibrant cocktail napkins.
Revelers exhausted from a night of dancing and dining also receive 15 percent off a same-night stay at the nearby Napa River Inn with today's deal. The discount is taken from the lowest-available rate made at the time of reservation, so plan ahead to make the most of advance-booking discounts. As a registered historic landmark, the inn's interiors reflect the original feel of downtown Napa through their design and décor. Accommodations for a single night include a complimentary hot breakfast delivered to the room the following morning by a cross between a dumbwaiter and a Mensa-approved elevator.
