Father of two girls, the younger of whom I'll be escorting to Mall of America tomorrow morning to meet one of her favorite YouTube stars. Mom will be taking the older one to see Ocean's Eight. Sunday calls for French toast, some World Cup action, a trip to the arboretum, and probably grilling steaks as the US Open winds down. It's ridiculously muggy at the moment, so what's in my glass? MobCraft Batshit Crazy brown ale. Seems appropriate.

My kids and wife are taking me to see The Incredibles 2 tonight as a kind of throw-back to when they were little, and then a weekend of dad stuff to include a lake test of a couple Hobie Pedalboards.  They look fun but they're pricey so I want to test them first.

But mainly grilling steaks and whatnot, drinking various red wines, and naps.

One son born 1994. Almost named him Mercury. I'm thinking he is going to buy drinks for me at Long Road later on tonight. Nothing better than a MichiGin and tonic.

Johnny Walker Black with a few cubes because it's 92 out.

Old Nation - Green Stone, an American pale ale (5.5%, IBU 40)

same brewery as M43

This ones also hazy and smooth but a bit milder than M43. Quite good

I have five kids. They will all be with me on Sunday except my oldest son who is training with the  Army at Fort Lee. We will BBQ with my kids, my sisters, their families, and my dad. A little Jack Daniels Honey with some Vernors is my drink of choice this weekend.

3 teenage sons.  I'm in denial about the upcoming college expenses.

Just cracked open a growler of Bent Paddle 14 ESB, an excellent example of an underappreciated style of beer, which I picked up on my way through Duluth earlier this week.

All 3 kids don't have a choice but to spend it with me! 4yo, 2yo and 6mon. Since I'm out of Dank Juice I'll have to find another solid IPA or dIPA... Any recommendations?

5 year old twins had Father’s Day picnic today at school in 100 degree weather. Went to a fav wing spot for dinner. Couple of Dales Pale Ales at dinner and now settling for an ice cold Miller Lite while they destroy the back yard. They are now creating “cars” to roll down a hill in the yard. Shaping up to be an emergency room type of night.

Sitting in my two year old twins’ room bc they now scream for me to sit while they go to sleep this week. Annoying but at least I have a cocktail and mgoblog. I can text my wife shit that needs to be done.

First year of being a step dad to an 8 and 4 year old. I picked up a rare find (for Florida) of Founders Breakfast Stout. Its gonna be me, my 4 pack, and some NHL 18 on the PS4 while my girl prepares a Nicaraguan feast for me and the rest of the family. Sunday is gonna be a good one.

The dish she told me she was making is a big Spanish word I can't pronounce. I dont ask what it is I like the surprise. Usually its some form of seasoned rice with black beans and a meat cooked with veggies. From the amount of groceries I helped bring in its going to be way more than that this time around. 


June 15th, 2018 at 9:37 PM ^

Had an All Day IPA with dinner. Probably go bowling tomorrow if it rains with wife and daughter. Told wife I would be happy if we can get to any brewery this weekend to have a beer.

Just found out 3 days ago that next year will be my first father's day. We're visiting her family in Michigan this weekend.  Got to tell them in person and not over video chat.

Son is taking me to HOMES beer festival at Vets park tomorrow. Daughter is on a vacation by herself in S. Africa. She's hanging with some Harvard boys in a hostel watching World Cup.

I have one son who is at his 8th grade end of school year dance right now. I am off to walk a friend’s dog in his place. The boy ‘earned’ $30 for 4 days of dog-walking of which wifey and I will have done >50%. Give him credit, though, he rescued the dog from a skunk yesterday. He took some incoming fire. We were able to get him cleaned up for the dance.

Had our first son almost 3 years ago. We added a baby girl last Dec. It's been a hell of a ride, but things sure aren't boring.

Had a founders dank wood and now sipping some bulleits.  Sunday we are going over to my parents for breakfast. Already got my gift from the wife and twins, a beer of the month subscription.  Then Sunday will end with playing some lacrosse in my old mans league going to be going to be hot as balls but will still be playing lacrosse.
