Red Eye (Two Brothers)

This limited release coffee porter was released as part of an anniversary recap. They released 14 of their favorite brews over the past 15 years, plus a new anniversary brew (Monarch).

I broke it out when my best Chicago friend from KC was up visiting. I was introducing her to Death at a Funeral (in the background of the picture). It was enjoyed between giggles.

Coffee...porter...how can you go wrong?

General Thoughts
Look and Smell: This brew had an rich reverse head. It was a creamy coffee color. The brew was almost black and smelled like light chocolate and medium roast coffee. There was a slight vanilla scent that went well with the coffee roast.

Taste: It was a rich coffee with sugar/caramel. It had a dry, coffee grind, aftertaste. It was nice. The aftertaste would have been nicer if I was eating vanilla ice cream! Too bad I'll never get to try that. This was my first and last taste of this limited release.

Nothing on the Two Brothers Brewing Co site. I don't have the bottle. But I will say, it is an ale brewed with coffee beans. I think most of the bottle language was about the 15 brews for 15 years anniversary.

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.
