Voorjaar (Hunter's Brewing)

I met up with a far-away friend to show him a bit of the NWI craft brew scene. We hit Figure Eight for some lunch and on-site brews he had not before tried. Then I led him to Hunter's for a treat.

I worked through some of the new brews in the constantly rotating tap selection, starting with this Belgian Pale Ale. With my delay in these notes, most are no longer on tap. I'll have my memories, and notes to reference should they come back.

General Thoughts
Look and Smell: This gold brew had a white bubbly head. I did not stop to think about the smell of this one.

Taste: It was more bitter than expected. It had the sweet sugariness associated with a Belgian, but it was more of a sweet apple. Crisp and refreshing with a substantial quality from that sugar. It was a brew to enjoy.

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.
