THIS WEEK, WEDNESDAY ISN'T A DRAG
Wednesdays are usually that long day... that middle-of-the-work-week feeling gets ya' and leave you feeling a bit blah. Well not this week! Beat the midweek blues with the best "hump day" we've had in months! Need some help figuring out your evening? Don’t worry, I’ve got ya’ covered in today’s edition of
Loy’s IF-I-WERE-YOU Wednesday, May 8th plan:
1) I’m definitely starting my evening with the Beer Mile - I’ve got a relay team participating, but this event is hilarious and ABSOLUTELY worth spectating, so definitely plan on swinging by to watch! BUT BE WARNED if you get a bit queasy watching people… let’s say “toss their cookies”… you might want to skip this one. Last year that happened a time or two!
2) After the Beer Mile, I’m headed straight over to The Bay’s Master Class. As one of our only educational-focused events, I’m really looking forward to learning more about tasting beer - the former teacher in me absolutely LOVES events like this, and let’s be real, I love geeking out with other beer nerds and learning about beer with people!
3) After Master Class, I’d wrap up my evening at Lockhorn Cider with their Cider-and-Sausage pairing. I love Lockhorn’s low-key vibe and sipping some cider, snacking on sausage, and waiting for my sister to roll into town (yep, she’s coming to visit for the last half of beer week, and I’m super excited to have her here!) sounds like the perfect way to wind down!
Loy’s ALTERNATIVE IF-I-WERE-YOU Wednesday, May 8th plan:
You may have noticed I only have three events listed above, and our fourth event today would be my alternative plan. Our fourth event today is Blacksmith Italian’s Beer Pairing Dinner with Bunkhouse Brewery, and the menu looks ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE. You should absolutely treat yo’self and go to this dinner if the beer mile isn’t your style. I just didn’t feel like showing up to a beautiful beer dinner all sweaty and bro-ed out from my run would be appropriate and certainly wouldn’t do the amazing pairing menu justice. ;) But this would be my alternative plan for the night!
