25 Drinks: Christmas Comes Early

December 22 was the best of the best. Christmas came early with one of my favorite beers. For me to call a beer my favorite is a big one. With the hundreds of adult beverages that have passed through these lips over the past few years, it's rare for me to have anything twice let alone have a favorite. But this, my friends, is perfection in a glass. Evil Twin's Imperial Biscotti Break.

That said, I've not written about it. It's too perfect to put into words. I spend so much time savoring the moment that I can sip this brew that I can't think to pause to think too hard. I have no motivation to write about it the next day because it's just a sad reminder that the moment has passed. So smooth, creamy, almondy, and boozy.

I did write about the Imperial Doughnut Break, but it's just not the same.

Luckily for all of us, or at least those in well-stocked Indiana booze shops, this seems to be easier to find than in year's past. Two shops across the street from each other had two rows of this nectar of the gods. Maybe they were just in fierce competition. I stocked up.

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.
