I usually take days off from work around my birthday, but this year I had projects hitting at work and decided it wasn’t the best idea. So I delayed the time off until this weekend. I’m taking a half day off tomorrow and full days Monday and Tuesday.
Back on the Friday before BBQ Fest, at the start of a full week vacation, I started a new tradition at happy hour at the Silly Goose: I pulled out my little green-haired troll and danced with her. Ever since, any time I have extra days off, I dance with the troll.
If you want to see me dance with the troll, I’ll be at Silly Goose not long after it opens at 2 tomorrow.
But, enough about me. On to the news:
PAINT THE TOWN TIGER BLUE!

For those in the mood for an easy-drinking, post-race beer on Saturday:
In celebration of the St. Jude Marathon, we were asked to brew a beer for running. We made Tarahumara Dry Hopped Pale Ale, a lean chugger named for the famed distance runners of northern Mexico. Available this Saturday. pic.twitter.com/Uv5rvfw2OV

From WREG: First United Methodist rises again after a 2006 fire. The church is located at Poplar and N. Second and rebuilding is about 70% complete.
Ghost River’s Thirsty Thursday club kicks off today in the taproom. Drink 10 pints and become a member. Members get $4 pints.
Friday from 4 to 8 PM Sabor Caribe at 662 Madison will offer a $10 Arepas Combo (with a side) to St. Jude runners. They will also have $3 local beers.
That’s it for now. Back tomorrow (or maybe lunchtime today) with more news.
