S’mores and pizza could be a standalone event with no show necessary, but the weekly winter s’mores night at Swamp Rabbit Cafe wraps up at 8:30 p.m., just in time to get over to The Radio Room. The open fire for marshmallow roasting will be ready to go at 5 p.m. and the Swamp Pizza oven will be ready to bake your preferred pie — gluten free and vegan options available. Wine and beer will also be pouring out at the shipping container pizza setup, so make this a great start to a night featuring local favorites. Most of the pizza offerings are on the menu consistently with a seasonal special here and there. Currently, there’s a curried cauliflower pizza that should be the go-to if it’s still on the menu. Otherwise, go with one of these not-so-standards:

Kale and sausage $16
House-made white Parmesan sauce, house-made sausage, organic kale, Ashe County cheddar, organic Parmesan and local mozzarella

Loaded baked potato $15
House-made white Parmesan sauce, Ashe County cheddar, local potatoes, bacon, caramelized onion, finished with house-made ranch

Buffalo chicken $17
Local chicken cooked in-house and tossed in hot sauce and paired with Clemson blue cheese, Ashe County cheddar, and house-made ranch dressing.

Swamp veggie $16
House-made red sauce, cabbage, local sweet potatoes, kale, red onion, local mozzarella, and Forx Farm Gouda

What we’re seeing

Phat Lip

Phat Lip is a perfect-fit combination of singer Kelly Jo Ramirez’s passionate, explosive voice and a modern-day version of the Latin pop she loved as a child. Even the ballads on the band’s debut EP, “Vision,” have an irresistible propulsion, settling into relentless head-nodding grooves that seem to deepen as the songs progress and becoming almost hypnotic on the slow, sensual grind of “Most Beautiful Girl,” one of the hottest unrequited love songs you’re likely to hear this or any other year. Add Ramirez’s endlessly inventive, relentlessly powerful voice, and Phat Lip’s live show is a banquet of incredible musical skills combined with great Latin-pop songs.
