I realize there was a big animal rescue event today, but honestly, I'm over it. I'm not against them or what they want to achieve, but I have a life and part of that life is charity, but I don't make charity my entire life. So I didn't save a puppy today... oh well.
That said, the family and I took some time out to travel down to Calhoun St. and check the Beer & Brat Festival this evening. There was all kinds of German beer available (for about $4 a bottle) along with German food and live music to boot. The $10 cover charge was steep and I was a bit miffed by how expensive the event was... until the B-Town Playaz ripped out "Hot Potato"... and then I realized it was worth every penny.
The Bad: Expensive everything, $10 for plastic cup seems excessive
The Ugly: In 6 days you can do what cost $10 a head for free at TGI3rdF
Still, the music was great and the beer was cold, which makes for a good time no matter how you slice it.
For those who don't know who/what "Hot Potato" is all about, I give you...
