There was a good crowd at Greenbush for Laura Campbell on Tuesday, at least when I was there and from what I heard from others. Good turn out should equate to a great fund raiser; I don’t really know as I haven’t heard any figures for the amount of money raised, but I’m sure it was really good. Not only did Greenbush put up 50% of their take and with 100% of the raffle money going to Laura, but all of the servers donated their tips, too. Wow!
Today there is a very special opening, at least one I have been anxiously awaiting. Burn ‘Em Brewing is opening their tasting/to-go room at 10am CDT. Debbie and I are going to be there by early afternoon, so why not you?
And while you are in Indiana, why not take a trip east to Granger for the Inaugural Indiana Michigan Craft Beer May Fest. I’m not going, but that shouldn’t prevent you from going and enjoying.
Tonight is the night for the Laura Campbell Fund Raiser, so attend if you can. I’m very sure you’ll not only have a good time with great beer and food, but you’ll be helping a much deserved cause. See you later today!
It’s going to be a wonderful weekend, at least as far as the weather is concerned, so get out and enjoy. One stop you might want to make may be Pleasant House in Three Oaks, where Gloria, who is their head brewer, will be holding a demonstration of a small-batch brew in celebration of National Homebrew Day. Sounds like fun!
And…Four days to the Fund Raiser for Laura Campbell. Make it there if you can, please!
Five days to the Laura Campbell Fund Raiser.
Come on by Greenbush to see Brittney (Mrs. Romeo) on her last day bartending. Speaking of last days, Blake Murray had his at Greenbush, yesterday. No worries, though, as he’ll be at Burn ‘Em Brewing full time, so you can see in there.
Just six days to the fund raiser for Laura Campbell. Don’t forget.
No excuses, I just forgot. Now, let’s move on to today, which happens to be the best day of the month. I know this is going to sound like a broken record, and that makes sense as I’m still stuck in the same groove. You know the drill: First I’ll meet with Bruce at Tapistry for $2 TierIII beers and lunch, then off to Greenbush for half-prices Groups A & B beers for Mug-Club members. Yes!
Speaking of Greenbush: There will be an event to raise funds for Laura Campbell, who has been dealing with cancer for the past 15 years. Recently she had been diagnosed and treated for a small cancerous tumor in her brain the result of metastasis. Here are the details, so far, that the organizer of this event, Emily Kamp, has told me.
“Hi Lloyd! Right now the plan is 4-close Tuesday, May 5th. Greenbush will be giving back 50% of our total sales to Scott & Laura to take a family trip to Disney. Posters should be going up Monday or Tuesday. Please help spread the word! Would love to get as many people to come into Greenbush that night as possible
“We’ll also be doing a raffle & money raised for tickets will also go to Scott/Laura… Possibly some t-shirts too”
If you can, please attend this event to help this wonderful woman attain a dream, or two and more.
I did miss yesterday’s post, but I have a good excuse. Below is a picture of a 20′ tower that I put up, which took most of Friday, and a little bit of a previous day, to complete:
And, don’t forget that Burn ‘Em Brewing will not be opening their tasting/to-go room until May 9, which, fittingly, corresponds to Steev and Blake’s father’s birthday. What a great tribute!
See ya at Greenbush and Tapistry a little later today!
If you look at today’s calendar date, you may be incredulous after seeing snow flurries this morning along with a cold northwest wind. I, of course, will not let a few snow flakes interfere with my endeavors.
