Strong Beer Festival 2020

20th anniversary of the Strong Beer Fest this time around. Anna and I started the day with some Waffle House and boozy Rockstars.

We did it right. Managed to take advantage of VIP tickets by getting fanny packs full of snacks, and making sure to eat a few hotdogs before leaving.

After the festival, we bought ourselves presents at the pawn shop. Then we fit in a trip to the TT Roadhouse after party.

Thieves Market Day

Having fun today checking out the Thieves Market in the parking lot of Big Surf. Anna ran with it and invited a bunch of friends. Glad Craig showed up, felt outnumbered by women and children. It’s basically an Anna day, I’m just going with the flow.

After the market, we hit up Social Hall & 414 bar. Things got a little fuzzy after that, maybe Joe’s Crab Shack before heading home? Yeah, that sounds right. Loves me some of those Great Balls.

Hunters of Avalon Kickstarter Launch Party at Sidebar

Stopped by Todd’s Kickstarter (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/uuddgames/hunters-of-Avalon) party at Sidebar after work. Had a couple delicious cocktails, but left before things got weird. Anna and I don’t party in the avenues.

Afterwards, we ended up at The Yard Cigar Bar. Just another Friday. ?

Level 1 Arcade Bar

Went out to happy hour in Gilbert with work buddies today. It was fun. Turns out I already know one of the bartenders at the first place we went, Culinary Dropout. Derrick; he used to work at Queens Pizza in Mesa. He has a glorious beard too.

After, we checked out Level 1 Arcade Bar. These guys definitely put the money in to do it right. Plenty of pinball combined with classic arcade games. Plus it has a full bar and kitchen. Thank you Josh for scouting the place out first.

Hello World

Yup, it’s the overused and obligatory first post. Mostly I want to see how it renders on this theme. We’ll see.

Trying to connect through WordPress.com, having a trouble with that. We’ll give the new certificate time to propagate, that might be the issue.

I’m really trying to get this all set up through the mobile app and Jetpack.

Well, the cert they gave me wasn’t complete. Re-download a complete one and added to my hosting. Everything is working now.

PoGo Day

Piplup everywhere on Mill. Anna and I had a ton of fun despite my drinking habits. I remember catching at least three shiny piplups. I DON’T remember meeting Phoenix Superman. I can’t be drinking like that, not good for me.

Discount Tire NASCAR Hat

Anna spotted this sweet hat while we were thrifting on Saturday. Only six bucks! I messaged @discounttire on Twitter to get more details on it. Apparently it’s signed by Brad Keselowski, Joey Logano, Dai Yoshihara, and possibly Austin Cindric.
