    I feel like I haven’t composed a Top Ten list for quite some time. Ever since I gave up on a regular posting schedule my list production has faltered. If my current work/social calendar holds I should have time to post weekly Top Ten lists throughout the month of December. You know, like in the old days. The best deaths of the year, the best beers, […]

    You can hear it as it rises from the corner booth at your local craft beer bar. Or maybe that one friend of yours with too much disposable income who boasts a beer and Buffalo Trace Antique Collection cellar asked it of you the one (and only) time he invited you to a Bottle Share.

I think I’ve forgotten to post new discoveries […]

    Don’t laugh. It hurts. I kind of secretly not-so-secretly love Electric Light Orchestra. I mean, what’s not to love? They’re the Disco Beatles! The songs are so impossibly catchy. Maybe even literally impossible, since you can sing the words to Beatles songs over pretty much any ELO song. If you’ve never played this game before, try listening to “10538 Overture” without thinking about “Dear Prudence.” Whatever. My point is, if you […]

    This time last year I never would have dreamed of having a four-day weekend. In fact, this time last year I worked the Friday, Saturday, and Sunday of Labor Day weekend. You can imagine my surprise when I learned that I would have paid holiday time off on Friday in addition to paid time off on Monday’s holiday. Truly I am living like a […]
