W3 (Ironwood Brewing)

I ended my evening of lights with this wheat. I didn't really care to have a citra-hopped brew and nothing else really stood out. I got to chatting with the bartender and a gent at the bar and didn't get a picture or notes. But I remember it well enough.

Based on the RIS, the porter, and the wheat, I think I have a good feel for this spot. I will say their tart cherry mead that I sipped from Mr. K's glass was quite good. It is a very cool place to hang out; it adds to the neighborhood to have a good community pub.

General Thoughts
Look and Smell: It was a straw-colored brew. It had a frothy white head

Taste: It was a light and creamy flavor. One of my friends who tried it the weekend before noted that it didn't have that hop-heaviness of many American wheat beers. I agree, it had a soft and wheaty flavor.

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.
