A couple weeks ago, I put together a google map with all of the Michigan bars I'm aware of (and also everything from the spreadsheet that bouje has been maintaining.) The map is here.
Hopefully this will prevent the "where's the Michigan bar in Pittsburgh/Fresno/Topeka/wherever" threads that pop up every week, but if your favorite gameday hangout isn't on here, put it in the thread and let me know. I'll do my best to keep the map up to date.
I thought this might be right up some MGoUser's alley - the Smithsonian Museum of American History is hiring a brew taster/historian to travel the country for three years. This guy (or gal) will taste local craft brews and write reports about them. From the story:
No, you don’t have to document beer from the dawn of time. This position is part of the Smithsonian’s food history initiative. The beer industry was all but extinct after Prohibition. It took years for not only the industry, but American beer consumption to rebound to what it was prior to 1919. For this position, the candidate will focus the American brewing industry from the 1960’s forward.
Sadly, its not just taste testing. The Smithsonian being a museum, and all, they will want you to actually provide museum quality content, I suppose... But its a 3-yr gig at ~$60K/yr, maybe some newly minted PhD could use a job? Here's the job app...
I got home a little bit ago, grabbed three Octoberfests, and poured them in my giant stein. Fuck it! I'm staring early. I also threw Denard '14 in the 360 and continued my dynasty. Let's go.
EDIT: I originally posted this as a diary. I'm sorry. Thank you, acnumber1.
A big thanks to everyone who attended MGoBlog Football Eve last night at Ashley's. I was really grateful to meet each of you and would love to do it again next year.
We may need to find a bigger venue as the 50+ people definitely exceeded the fire marshal limit for Ashley's basement.
11 hours until kickoff! GO BLUE!
