I wandered off the reservation again this week, sorry about that. It was particularly bad timing since January marked the strongest attendance log for Liquid Diet ever, an increase which averaged more than 500 additional visitors per day. So what do I do? Go AWOL and stifle the momentum. Timing is everything and I apparently I ain’t got it…
At least I didn’t just piss away the time I didn’t spend here. I did a lot of improving the premises this week and, in the process, made a discovery yesterday that has both delighted and excited me. You can read about that over at Mermaids if you are the sort who would want to read about something like that.
The good beer news is that Bitter American is back in the market and now a year-round release (just finished a can before sitting down to write this) and that Old Forge Brewing Co. came into the Philly market as of this week and Clown Shoes Beer will arrive here a week from today. Meanwhile, if, as an Eagles fan, you find the whole idea of this year’s Super Bowl downright unpalatable, you might want to wash away that bad taste tomorrow at Teresa’s Next Door where, in typical Andy Dickerson fashion, they are having their celebration a day early. And what a celebration it is. Kolesar gots himself all the details.
As for me, as I bask in my more appealing surroundings and re-reading my own work from all those years ago (you did pop over to Mermaids so you know what I’m talking about, right?) with a fresh eye while trying to see how I can make use of it, I will inspire myself with good beer aplenty, perhaps mixing in a bottle of Dock Street Truffled Old Ale as as special treat. When I was unable to make either the press preview or official release, the brewery was kind enough to send me a bottle, for which I am most grateful.
Come to think of it, grateful is pretty much my operative state at present. It’s kinda nice.SHARE
