Sudsy Weekend

The overarching theme of the weekend was . . . good beer. Sounds like a quality weekend already, doesn't it? :) You're going to hear what I did this weekend with the "soundtrack" of what beer was involved. Because that's how I feel like doing it, see?

Friday night - BB & I went out for dinner at Cambridge 1. Beer = Post Road Pumpkin Ale. Not quite as flavorful as the Blue Moon Pumpkin, but good nonetheless. Pizza = steak w/ gorgonzola & garden sorrel w/ chevre (and yes, I realize that I ordered
a pizza featuring leaves for a former football player. I made sure he was ok with it first!). After dinner, we headed down to the People's Republik, my favorite bar in the world. I hadn't seen the bartenders or regulars in a couple of months & I love them, so I got a little giddy. Beer = Harpoon Oktoberfest (plus a couple of shots).

Saturday - Slept in until noon (may have had a little company), then up to enjoy the sunny day. Showered & drove to Southie to see BB's apartment for the first time. It's nice, and surprisingly clean for housing two boys. We walked around Southie a bit, looked at some of BB's photos, had a great take-out dinner, hung out with BB's roomie, and watched some football. Beer =
Sam Adams Oktoberfest (in lieu of attending the Harpoon Oktoberfest nearby).

Saturday night saw us heading into Allston to see a show at Harper's Ferry. Hooker, of blog fame, was playing bass for The Sharking. Jenny was there & we chatted with her for a bit. She promised to post pics of the show this week. Beer = Blue Moon Belgian ale, Magic Hat Circus Boy, and Sam Adams Boston Lager.

Sunday - Woke up around 8:30 (at BB's place) & had to haul my lazy ass out of bed to go pick up my bridesmaid dress in Abington. While I was getting ready, BB walked to the bakery & picked up coffee & danish for us. How great is that? :) Procured my dress & paid the seamstress, then headed to Sears to get shoes & earrings to match. Home for a bit in the afternoon, tutored a student, then home again for the last Blue Moon Pumpkin left in the fridge & some major couch/TV time.

In conclusion, the beer was good. The man was (is) better. I'm a contented girl. :)

Have you ever been to the Publick House in Washington Square in Brookline? Every time I hit up Boston I go there. Now they have some amazing beers.
