Last weekend, a former roommate and awesome-ma-possum friend came back to Colorado. (Where she belongs. Florida is lame.)
So we decided we needed some classic Boulder time.And so it began.
Half Fast pitchers for lunch, post DP Dough delights. Then it was (tipsilly) on to my house, where we tapped into my alcohol stores and enjoyed some Apples to Apples with brewskies and Irish Car Bombs.
Time for dinner, and it was into fake eyelashes and sexified eye makeup. Rio, here we come. Then we meandered over to the Walrus for my first ping-pong action.
Not too shabby for a bunch of 20-somethings.
My own path of debauchery is one y’all could almost mimic this weekend.
Take the booze with some biking, and you’ve got my suggestions for your days off. Take, for instance, the release of yet another quality Avery brew.
On Sunday over at their taphouse (5757 Arapahoe Ave.), say hello to the Ross’s’s’ Melange, a barrel-aged beer standing at a bold 11.04 percent. It’s been canoodling with some Chardonnay grapes and new yeasts, making it a “wild and funky” beer, as they say on their site. Who can resist some funky-ness? The line party starts at 11 a.m.
Now, raise your hand if you love beer. (That other hand that’s NOT holding a foam-topped beer right now.)
Great, then head over to The Dairy Center for the Arts (2590 Walnut St.) on Friday for more booze love. Boedecker Theater’s got a showing of an aptly named “The Love of Beer” at 7:30 p.m.
The film, made in partnership with the Boulder History Museum’s “BEER! Boulder’s History on Tap” exhibit, follows some inspirational women as they make their name in a primarily man’s brewing world. Because we all love beer, boobies or not.
Add a pint to your purchase, and they’ll take $2 off your ticket price.
Course, let’s not allow our asses to completely fuse to the couch. Slip a bike seat under it and pedal into the third annual G’Knight Ride in Longmont.
Interested? You should be. The event’s hosting the Wendy Woo Band, Last Men on Earth and Family of the Year, a bunch of food vendors and an Oskar Blues-filled beer garden meant to refresh you biking folk.
Their site (http://gknightride.org/) has all the info, but needless to say, it’s a great way to spend a Saturday.
But OK, enough beer. Let’s move to whiskey, the drink I abandoned after a shot too many left me pantless and passed out on a friend’s kitchen floor.
Spirit Hound Distillers (4196 Ute Hwy.) is releasing their White Dog Moonshine — “white whisky” — with a coming-out party on Friday at noon. Live music and food trucks should make this a great day-drinking excursion for you folks. Plus, they’ll have all their other liquors available … just in case.
