Premium Verum (Warsteiner)

A definite perk when you are flying Lufthansa is the beer. They only have one, but it's a refreshing authentic German lager. It's one of the only pilsners I'd ever order on purpose, not only when it's free on the plane. In the many times I've had this, and the dunkel, I have yet to write notes about either. My 'buds might have been a little off while flying up high over that big blue ocean, but I can go off of light and refreshing memories for this post.

General Thoughts
Look and Smell: Lager yeast and not much else. Very light smell. Frothy white head.

Taste: This brew is very refreshing with no aftertaste like some funky lagers have. With all the lightness, I could still detect the malt in this brew. This is a great summer brew.

From the Warsteiner site:
Enjoy this world-class international premium pilsener. 
Unique: the slightly tart taste experience.
Exceptional: the top quality of the ingredients.
Inimitable: the exquisite premium character.
Pleasantly light: thanks to especially soft brewing water.

I Marched, What's Next?

What can we do? There has to be more than writing letters and posting on social media. This is a work in progress, but these are my thoughts...
Stay educated. If you think the media is misleading you, take charge. Know your sources. Do your research. You don't have to consume the 24-hour repetitive cycle of media. You can focus and keep it to the point. I like NPR, Popular Science, and the technical sources (department sites). If you're curious about education, go to the Dept of Education site! You want to know about the job rates? Go to the Department of Labor reports.

Educate each other. We are failing in this. We need to talk about the issues. Not just reposting articles, but face-to-face or virtually with a personal spin and follow up. We need to have meaningful discussions about the current state of affairs and what is happening. We can only act together if we work together. But serious discussion, not Facebook posts!

A Right Regal Bonsoir (or Imperial Bedroom Revisited)

Elvis Costello doesn't mess around. Last night, at The Chicago Theater, I witnessed a true delight of the senses. Out of respect for the artist's wishes, as requested, I didn't take any pictures or video of the performance. You'll have to live through my description and a grainy, preshow snap.

Wild Horticulture (Little Shop of Horrors)

Last night, I saw Little Shop of Horrors (Crown Point Community Theater edition). This fan-favorite has stood the test of time. People still pack in to see this 80s musical based on a 60s movie. Big production or small, the catchy tunes and dark yet quirky storyline keep people humming and laughing.

CPCT has a great range of shows. From Sartre's thought-provoking No Exit to the whimsical, yet mature, Happily Ever Once Upon they bring entertainment to the community. CPCT brings in plays that are far from mainstream. Evenso, it was a delight to see this classic musical.
