Spring is in the air people! Not that we've had much of a winter but I had a friend tell me she saw her first robin, flowers are blooming, and the kids are getting a little nuts on the warmer days. I'm so in the spring mood I spring-cleaned my house and my car out this weekend which is ridiculous considering how disgusting my minivan has gotten. I think I found an entire box of cereal spread out over the entire car and some grapes that were pretty much on their way to being raisins. Every time I finish cleaning the car to it's like-new status I swear I won't let my kids eat in it again. That pretty much goes out the window once we are stuck in traffic, they're screaming, and I would pretty much sell my soul to get them to clam up so I can listen to "Fresh Air" on NPR (what? sometimes it's REALLY interesting). My husband wants to drive down to Disney World with them next year. He is hilarious and apparently smoking crack because he forgets the hell we endure driving down the shore with the little monkey's in the summer. Oh don't worry, he'll be reminded soon enough. Memorial Day travel is not too far off.

Scoats is back from his early spring vacation. I haven't seen a t-shirt or a shot glass yet but you know, it's not that important. I wasn't expecting anything (No, I'm not crying. I have something in my eye.) Maybe he'll be at Quizzo Wednesday at 8 pm to share some of his well-traveled knowledge or maybe he'll be holed up in his house looking nervously out the window for lurking shadows on his porch. Not that I know anything about that....
On Friday, March 3 from 7pm – 10pm the Grey Lodge will celebrating the 4th anniversary of Boaks, one of the region's greatest little breweries. According to Scoats and crew, Boaks makes some amazing beers and their Belgian beers are spot-on. Well, this little event sounds like it's right up my alley. I'm a big fan of beer and Belgian beers are my favorites. (I like tequila too, and vodka, and whiskey of course. No. Not together! Dear Lord, this isn't "Intervention").
Boaks doesn't actually have their own brewery, but they brew out of two other local breweries. Grey Lodge will celebrate Boaks' Belgian superiority by putting on tap all the Boaks beer (Double BW, Monster Mash, Two Blind Monks, and Wooden Beanie) they can lay their hands on and brewer/owner Brian Boak will be there. They are having cake too to celebrate their 4 years. I mean, really? You had me at Belgian beer but you add cake into the mix too? Can Friday night get any better??
