The Plan.

Ebs works all weekend so she's staying in Brooklyn to keep close to work. Justin just got paid and it's Friday night. Mendany gonna drink beer, eat sandwiches roasted in the oven, watch war movies, play WoW and drink beer.

Since there are people who are supposed to come to my house on Sunday, we'll clean up a bit when we get up. We get up pretty early, so that leaves us the evening to go to Freeport, eat at a clam bar, drink beer and buy some just-caught fish to grill on Sunday. I also hope to find a fish-grilling-trap-type thingy there-- there are plenty of gift shops at least one's gotta have a grilling fish section.

I'm hoping this will be a late evening. Cuz I don't want to wake up at 5 am Sunday. I want to enjoy my guests and not fall asleep on them right after we eat.


How's Dany coming along with his Mr. Beer? You haven't posted about it lately, so I was wondering if he'd lost interest, or what.

You can definitely find fish grill baskets at Bed, Bath & Beyonce, and probably at Target and other stores along those lines. But if there are a bunch of gift shops, most likely they'll have them, too, if they're smart.

He just bottled a batch last night. He thought we were out of mix but there's one left. He's gonna mix that up on Monday.

He's taken to making 'extra' and letting it sit for much longer. I tried to interest him in the Mr. Beer messageboards but he's just not an internet kind of guy.

That's too bad, because there's a wealth of information there, and people give advice so freely. I've learned an awful lot about brewing in general, and I've begun to move beyond the world of the Mr. Beer ingredients. Of course, it depends on how far he wants to go with it. There are something like 185 different combinations you can have with just the Mr. Beer extracts, so it's not like he'll run out of things to try. I just like being more creative and adventurous with it.

You'll get to try some of my homebrew at RibFest, so let me know what you think!

Dany's been asking me when is it and, well, I forgot. Have you set a date?

July 17. Don't miss it!
