Persuasion (Hunter's Brewing)

This is another brew I had back in October that I needed to get posted. It's worth keeping notes on. This saison was one I was waiting for. Hunter's has a way of really capturing a style and variations that are still true to the standards. This saison was no different. It had the tartness you'd expect from any French Farmhouse ale, and the complexity of one worth drinking.

General Thoughts
Look and Smell: This dark brown brew had a bubbly and creamy head. It left heaving lacing on the snifter as I drank it. It smelled sour.

Taste: This brew was sour and herbal. I even tasted some banana. This had a lot going on. It was one to sip and think about if you were sitting there in solitude. It's a distracting beer if you're with company. I'm no master taster, and I'm sure I missed some of the flavor characteristics of this brew, especially as it warmed. But, I enjoyed it, and that's all that matters to me.

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.
