It’s been awhile since I have done a Weekend Update or anything of the sort. Part of it is because I was putting the blog on pause to focus on other things, part of it was because I was dreaming of 1,000,000 monthly viewers without the leg work to get there. I wanted to run before I could crawl.
It was Cinco De Mayo this past weekend AKA Cinco De Drinko, a day that was founded because the Mexicans beat the French (Who hasn’t? Not something really worth celebrating in my humble opinion.) and the United States really just adopted it as a huge day to drink Corona and Tequila and eat Tacos.
My Cinco De Mayo was coupled with a dear friend’s birthday celebration. I went up to Philly, crushed a Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA with some Mozz Sticks, or as my Italian friend would say, Mozzerlle. Then I had a Maximus from Lagunitas. Both really good beers. 90 Minute has 9% ABV, but goes down like it has 5%. Proceed with caution if you are driving home after one or two. Best to utilize a driving service (names cost $ driving service people). I headed to the pre-game before the intention of hitting a popular Latin club in Philly for some hip gyrations by yours truly. Slide in those DM’s ladies. Anyways, we had some tacquitos and what have you, sang happy bday, etc. Driving service to the Latin club, packed. Head over to 2nd Story Brewing and got a Sex on the Delaware Pale Ale. Not in the Delaware…on it. Like I’m Jesus walking on water or something. It was a real good Pale Ale that I truly enjoyed and would recommend. 2nd Story is a great spot to hang out with friends and try some new stuff. Real chill environment. Headed over to a bar after that, got a Fat Tire (I tried to spread the love that night) and then left. Solid Cinco De Drinko.
On Saturday, I watched War Dogs and its a great ass movie for those who haven’t seen it. I finally got to see Guardians of the Galaxy 2, something I’ve been waiting forever to see. It was amazing and I want to see it again and again because I love those characters with my whole heart. If you haven’t seen it yet, you must stop what you are doing….take that back…finish reading this, follow me on social, listen to the podcast, then go see Guardians 2. Then hit up Mackenzie’s Brew Pub for some beer and a sandwich with the folks. Had their Seasons Change Session IPA and it was pretty solid. Nothing to write home about, but serviceable with a good sandwich.
Overall a good weekend with tons of different beers, friends, family, and a Marvel movie. Can’t complain too much! Cheers to all, hope your weekend was as enjoyable as mine. Looking forward to the next one just like everyone else!
