Rabbid Rabbit (Three Floyds)

It's note catch up time! I have a few good ones in here.

I had a bottle of this Franco-Belgian Farmhouse ale that I was going to drink for Easter. I lost track of it, but I was finally able to enjoy it. I remember not being overly impressed with it the first time I tried it, but I was still looking forward to drinking it again. It has been in my booze lair for over a year, but it was still fresh and delicious.

General Thoughts
Look and Smell: This straw-colored brew had a white fizzy head. It was very effervescent with bubbles streaming up the sides of the glass. It smelled yeasty and passion fruity.

Taste: It was thicker and creamier than expected. It was very carbonated with a bitter ptih aftertaste that lingers. I tasted the citrus fruitiness as well. It was a little herbal (chamomile?). I liked it. A light sourness and still a bit hearty.

From the FFF site:
This Franco-Belgian style Farmhouse Ale has an effervescent body and a light straw color. Rabbid Rabbit, with it’s light malt body, augmented by spices, is a complex and frothy beverage with a deceptively high alcohol content. March release.

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.
