So what that is like 34 degress outside.  So what if I am going to have to get out my snow pants for the 9:00 AM tee time tommorow.  It's Friday and beer and cookouts await.  What does your weekend have in store.

I've got daddy duty all day Saturday with our four month old. Then I'm contemplating brewing a UofM ale using flaked maize and Victory Malt in an ESB or cream ale. Any input from other brewers?

Today I have a half day at work so I'm outta here in 45 minutes.  I'll be home on my xbox this afternoon shooting zombies in L4D or L4D2, if anyone wants to join me my xbox live account is the same as my MGoUsername, MikeCohodes.

This afternoon happyhour hitting up a bar with my wife and her coworkers, she's a school counselor and the staff is getting together for a celebration of the end of the year.

Saturday or Sunday we're going to ditch our mgobaby with my wife's parents and go to the movies to catch the new Star Trek.

Monday I'll fire up the grill for the first time this year despite the cold and grill some steaks, wash it down with some Two Brothers Dog Days now that their summer ale is back, and I'll write up a review of Star Trek for my blog.

Thanks to all who have served or have a relative who have served in our armed forces, thank you for your sacrifices that allow us to have the freedoms we have.  Have a great and safe Memorial Day weekend everyone!

Camping out all weekend at the track and heading to the 500 on Sunday. I'm excited for beer and white trash boobies!!!

For my fiancé's cousin's wedding in Orlando. Figuring out where to watch both the Champions League final (big Bayern supporter) and the Wings game Saturday. Suggestions?

And hanging out with a hot blonde that wants to go swimming. Hot blonde or steak dinners and parents who want to buy me stuff?

I just don't understand this region (Cleveland area) weather-wise. As soon as we thought that shit weather was over, it's back down to windy, rainy, and cold. I HATE the weather here.

A couple of mini Sparty juggalos seem intent on spoiling the weekend by WALKING ALL OVER MY LAWN. I hope they get poison ivy. No Internet or cable, so no way to keep up with M softball. I'll be looking here for updates.

Busy weekend for me. Someone's rehearsal dinner tonight, wedding tomorrow (then watching the recording of the Red Wings after that), parent's annual big cookout Sunday, Fast & Furious 6 on Monday.

After work heading to the homestead and mixing a large cocktail. Mow the lawn and take care of some other medium sized tasks. Then, I will take it easy in preparation for bangin' weekend of little responsibility and great debauchery. First, I will chill with a movie this evening, but have not picked one out yet. I want a new release that is action/thriller style. Any suggestions?

Heading up to the cottage with the whole gang.  Cramming 20+ people in and setting up the docks and bringing out the boat.  Weather will not deter me from a weekend ski.  Is it just me or does Memorial Weekend often tease you with sub par weather Friday - Sunday and a nice day on Monday as you're heading home?


May 24th, 2013 at 2:12 PM ^

know man.  How far up are you going?  My parents are going to their cabin in Onaway this weekend and morning temps are literally going to be at or near freezing.  Not trying to go Buzz Killington but jet skiing this weekend might be a dicey venture.

My 8 year old son's soccer tournament in holland. Mini vacation for the fam. Don't forget take a moment and pause to remember what this weekend is really about.

I was gonna start a Drinkin' All Day thread - it's definitely that kind of day as I have some chicken marinating since this morning waiting for the grill and some homework to do at a very leisurely pace.  Which in turn has led me to take note of my alcohol stores and count up four bottles of Oberon and two near-empty bottles, one of Glenfiddich and one Sailor Jerry's.  I will not need a personal stock tomorrow as it's a race day (sailing) and that means Other People's Beer.  I'm thinking therefore that most of what I have left needs to disappear today so I have an excuse to replenish the supplies this weekend.  Which leaves me with only one question: Which should I pour myself to kick-start the day: the scotch or the rum?

Grilling, garage sales, etc.  Tonight I'll be playing Skyrim with my 8 yr old daughter . . . she made me promise her that she could do all the "killing".

The best way to combine honoring our fallen veterans with outdoor partying, bonfires, hard drinking, etc: 'MURICAN METAL! \m/
