Cheers ~ from the comfort of my bar stool!

There’s a beer festival in a nearby town today.  Mac LOVES beer, but I don’t.  (Helllllooo?? Tequila, Rum, Whiskey….)  So we have been to this festival in years past….you pay $35, drink as much as you want from the craft beer vendors, get pretty drunk and watch the drunker people stumble around and do stupid things.  For me, as the DD, it is freakin’ hilarious.  Luckily, it is outside on a beautiful grassy area downtown with live music.  I take my chair, 2 liter of diet Pepsi, a few snacks and set up camp for the day.  Mac stops by after every 5th beer to rest and eat Cheetos.  It’s a perfect set up.

Unless it rains.

Two years ago, it rained, the wind was howling and the tents were sideways.  We said, “Screw this! We’ll go to our bar and sit there in the dry, cool, comfortable seats and drink $35 worth of whatever we want (Hell YEAH!  I’ll have a Margarita please!).

So this year?  We’re just gonna skip the festival, camp out at our favorite bar AND have a server bring us whatever we want, including menu items like FOOD (Festival has pretzels for food…they are confused!).

Here’s to Beer Festivals everywhere ~ may they have a bar close by so I can wait there for now on!  Cheers!!

Ours isn't the "Biggest Beer Fest Ever" but I liked this picture.

  1. I’m not much of a beer drinker either but bring on some margaritas and cheetos!! And since when is pretzels the only food menu item?? I know – it makes you more thirsty so you drink more beer. Well played Beer Festival people. Well played!
