Sunday update

Multiple people have reported strange dreams during the COVID-19 pandemic, and after last night, I can sure relate. I must have had 30 dreams in one night and zoomed around to all kinds of different places and situations from my adult life. By the time I got out of bed, I had to stop and get a grasp on current reality, having to figure out which of my relatives are alive, whether I have pets, what city I live in, what apartment I live in, where I work, and if there’s a pandemic going on.

Got a couple of pieces of Sunday brunch news to start off the day:

Over at Silly Goose, Sunday bartender B-RAD will be back for his first shift since March 15. He and Jonathan will be behind the bar and Dylan will serve up wood-fired pizzas.

We even have live sports to watch today! Capital One’s “The Match: Champions for Charity” will tee off at 1 Central time this afternoon at Medalist Golf Club in Hobe Sound, Florida. The match will feature Tiger Woods and Peyton Manning vs. Phil Mickelson and Tom Brady. The event will raise $10 million to go toward pandemic relief. The match will be broadcast on TNT, TBS, truTV, and HLN. Format is best ball on the front nine and modified alternate shot on the back nine. For an explanation of the formats, player comparisons and prop bets, check out this Bleacher Report article.

Fun Sunday brunch at the Blind Bear, really the first day since the house arrest ended that things felt close to normal. Hanin was asked about the new moonshine slushies.

“The green one tastes like green, and the blue one tastes like blue,” Hanin explained. Well that’s helpful. There is a precedent, though: Go to Max’s Sports Bar and ask what Purple Drank tastes like.

Not a whole lot of news today, which is typical for a holiday weekend. Back tomorrow.
