Friday Night Adult Beverage, BBQ, and Bonfire Thread

Submitted by xtramelanin on May 18th, 2018 at 6:40 PM


About to leave work, lots of long days this week and working tomorrow.  However, all is not lost, as when I get home it'll be time for some adult beverages, a lit BBQ, and then a bonfire on a beautiful night with the family.  Oh yeah, and the livestock.  They'll watch from the pasture. 

Simple questions:  What's in your glass, what's on your grill/menu, and what's on tap for the weekend.

Spring is here, summer can't be far away,

Real Ale (Austin area microbrewery) Devil's Backbone, a tasty Tripel, and some Two Hearted. The novelty of getting Bell's in Texas still hasn't worn off.

With water in the glass, eggs and grits for the fine dining thanks to the two teeth being pulled in the early am today. Rest on Saturday and minor vehicle maintenance to close out the weekend. At least there will be Stanley Cup playoffs to watch. Hoping for a Tampa/Winnipeg final. Defibrillator will be close by as the heart will be stressed with all this excitment! ;)

Worked late so picked up Sonny's BBQ.

Sipping a martini.

Have to sand and stain some stairs this weekend.

Daughter coming home from college - maybe family board game night.

(If Dad sips too much martini it could become Rock Band - nooooooooo)

Bought 8 in Petaluma a week ago. Drinking one every third night. The store usually only lets me buy 4. Won’t be in that area again until the 30th.

Drinking a few bells hopsolution. Have to coach a girls lacrosse playoff game tomorrow morning. Each game I am dreading right now. I have decided this is my last year to coach (12th year at the same school). Have been around the program from the start but I am getting to point in life in which I am missing out on events for my kids. Whenever this season ends I am going to have a rough time leaving the field.
