    ahh, end radio silence.

    I've had alot going on. Whilst on my motorcycle en route to California in January I learned that Anjila and I are having our first child in September. So, I've been consumed with purchasing a house, learning about contractions, and getting El Fitzo up and running. Blah blah, that's not why I'm here.

    Next Thursday, May 21st, we will be tapping a three year vertical of BCBS. '12, '13, and '14. We originally thought we had a four year, but as it turns out we have two different dates for two 2012 kegs.

    So, here's the deal. Thursday at 8 the dining room will be closed. We'll tap the kegs. For $30 bucks, you get a four ounce pour of each, and some grub. We're not sure what yet. Pulled Pork, Brisket, Black Bean Hummus, pickled veggies, some pork belly french toast...etc etc. It'll be worth $30, trust me. Also, I'll be pulling out an '06 thru '14 bottle vertical, including one Rare. We're going to selling 22 tickets, so everyone gets an ounce of Rare. Sorry, that's what I got. That's not included in the cost, it's just me pouring beer for friends.
    Rooms will be $60 bucks that night. We have a good amount of rooms left for the whole weekend. If you drive from far far away, I'll hook ya up if you want to stay more nights.
    Ya'll are the first to know about this. Hasn't been posted on Facebook or anything like that yet. If you're interested, send me a private message or give me a call (906) 231-7666. Cheers!

    P.S. The baby was made in the small hotel in Bellaire, MI after Joe's birthday party and Dean Ween waxing the shit out of his guitar and smoking cigarettes on stage in Short's. How romantic. Soft Parade for the win baby!
