Peach Porch Lounger (New Belgium)

This juicy peach brew was the last in a Lips of Faith summer tasting. It's "an ale brewed with molasses and lemon peel and with peach juice added." I bought it because it was a Lips of Faith brew (brainwashed), the peach intrigued me. I will say that I didn't have high hopes for a beer with juice added. It's one thing to have some small additives, it's another for it to have juice and still be beer. But Mr. K loves the peach, and I couldn't pass it up.

General Thoughts
Look and Smell: This gold-amber brew had a white bubbly head that dissipated quickly. I could smell the peach from where I poured it. It smelled yeasty with a slight citrus. The last ounce, as it warmed, smelled like peach blossoms. It was very fragrant.

Taste: It was creamy yet acidic. The acid cuts through leaving it dry. It was nice to have a dry fruity beer. I was a little afraid that it would be syrupy and saccharine. I should have known better; this was coming from New Belgium.

From the bottle:
An afternoon on the stoop, foot stomps a loop. Southern style poured in 2 glasses, time becomes molasses. Harmony with hominy grits, peel the peaches and throw out the pits, get some action in the bottle with brettanomyces. G love in a brew, peach porch lounger sings just for you.

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.
