Central Waters Black Gold tix on sale at 6pm this Sunday. Great beer, kind of an easy drive (4 hours one way), just SE of Stevens Point, WI. I got tix last year, it's a fun time. Actual release is Oct 21. They are much more organized than TG, it's a nice, but smaller, space.

Re: Local Broadcasting/Media

I'm tempted to cut the cord. Comcast is so freaking expensive for what I get (or want) it's ridiculous). Certainly paying the convenience of it all at this point. Just for Gophers hockey season, I save $400/season cutting Comcast and then if I wish (which I don't do) go to Old Chicago for a burger ...

Re: Restaurant

I never got the love for Pig Ate My Pizza. It is overpriced and overpresented and hardly satisfying. Seems like a spot foodies would go so they can eat a meal they really want )pizza) but not sound lame while doing so. I was vastly underwhelmed.

Re: Local Broadcasting/Media

Re: Restaurant

I love Pig Ate my Pizza. Haven’t been since they moved and started brewing beer. Need to get there and check it out. Are they brewing now? They had to run guest taps for awhile They didn't have to, they were allowed to. ;) And if they are brewing, they got their brewpub license, and I believe that ...
