If you have a Saturday afternoon available, stumble over to the Brooklyn Brewery, located on 79 North 11th Street in, you guessed it, Brooklyn. Saturday afternoon they have tours every hour starting from 1 PM until 5 as well as running a bar with some of their finest beers on tap. Picnic tables and benches fill the inside drinking area so groups of friends and family can sit down, play some cards, shoot the shit, drink and be merry. Not only are the beers delicious but they€™re relatively cheap. For $20 bucks you get six tokens, with each token being good for one beer. That€™s less than $4 a beer for those mathematically challenged out there, but don€™t forget to tip your bartenders. I had a great time, took a million pictures of my friends constructing a beeramid (beer + pyramid. I love portmanteaus), families hanging out with their kids and €˜Monster€™. Here is a quick peek at what awaits you on Brewers Row.
These are the latest choices at the bar and I can personally attest to them all being delicious. Then again, find out for yourself.
Not only does the Brooklyn Brewery uses biodegradable cups, they€™re 100% powered by wind electricity.
And last but certainty not least€¦
is €˜Monster€™. While the cat€™s name is Monster (it€™s on the name tag, promise) this cat is anything but that. Sweeter than Brooklyn Brewery Summer Ale, Monster usually hangs around the Brewery Gift Shop which has cool t-shirts, track jackets and the all important beer tokens. Monster loves company, show some love next weekend.
It's not a secret that Star Wars Episode 1 is not only a horrible Star Wars movie, it's just a horrible movie in general. Sitting through it is a task, it's so dense and filled with boring political plot points, bad acting and computer graphics. It feels more like an ILM portfolio showcasing CG techniques rather than a film.
I can remember as a kid watching it for the first time and leaving the theater confused. I thought maybe I wasn't watching as careful as I should have been? I dunno what it was but I felt like I missed something because, its Star Wars, isn't it supposed to be good? I thought, "Did I just black out for most of that movie? Was I daydreaming the whole time?" I begged my parents to take me again, so I could see what I surely missed but they wouldn't take me. I had to wait for it to come out on video when I finally realized that it wasn't just me, this shit really does just suck.
