Today is the day that I do something a little bit different from the same-old crap that I normally do. I’m going to Water Vliet to meet with my buddy Bruce at Arclight, seeing that I haven’t been there for quite a while, I’m really looking forward to this trip. And, while I’m there, I might as well have a bit of lunch at La Chula.
Where does the time go? It’s Tuesday and I’m barely ready for it; fortunately, Tapistry & The Livery both have Mug-Club specials today. And, it’s Taco-Tuesday at Greenbush and Tapistry (a double your pleasure here.) I guess I better get going.
Where was my head? It’s St. Patrick’s Day! Put on a bit o’ the green and get out to your favorite pub! Do try to be safe, though, so everyone is around for next year’s St Patty’s Day!
Not only is it mug-club Tuesday at Tapistry & The Livery, but it’s Taco-Tuesday at Tapistry with Cajun shrimp. Nice! While you’re eating a shrimp taco you can wash it down with one of the “Lab” beers currently on tap, either Oyster Head, a stout made with whole oysters added to the boil; or Rusty Cajun a pale ale with Guajillo and cayenne peppers. Both of these brew are very good with the pale ale being my fav. Hurry up and try some before they’re all gone.
Happy Fat Tuesday!
Just barely made it, yesterday. Today it should be much easier to get around, which is a good thing since this is the last day of Greenbush’s Bacon Week. Today it’s bacon-Pot-Pie. Sounds like it’s going to be quite tasty.
What a great cheese/beer dinner at Tapistry last night! Thanks to the Tapistry crew and especially Keith, who did a great job in planning and preparing the event.
Speaking of Tapistry: Today is the day they bring out Hoponacci, this time with Mosaic hops. I know it will be available in bottles, and I would think it would be on tap, too.
Be safe on this 13th of Friday!
