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.

Cheers!

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!

 Cheers!

Not much going on in my neck of the woods, although there is Wurst Wednesday going on at Tapistry today. Also The Livery, as well as Tapisry, have Team Trivia going on tonight. Good beer, games and food, it doesn’t get better than that!

Does this beer make me look fat?

Cheers!

Tuesday means Taco Tuesday at Greenbush & Tapistry, and Mug-Club day at The Livery and Tapistry. Seems like a person can’t go wrong today.

Speaking of right things; Tapistry looks like they’re close to canning a couple of their beers.

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!

Cheers!

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.

Cheers!

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.

It tastes as good as it looks!

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.

Greenbush continues it’s Bacon Week with Bacon-Cured Pork Rinds. I don’t know about you, but this one seems like way too much bacon/pork to me.

Be safe on this 13th of Friday!

Cheers!

How exciting! I will start out by doing the usual crap that I do every day, maybe including some bacon shrimp at Greenbush to keep my involvement in Bacon Week going strong, then this evening it’s a Beer/Cheese pairing dinner at Tapistry. What a great, snowy day it will be!
