Steal the Pint this Friday February 21st

Have you ever been out drinking a beer at your favorite spot and thought, I’d really like to take home this glass? Either one of two things happened. Option 1: You pulled a Winona Ryder and took the glass blatantly disregarding social etiquette and screwing over your watering hole because glasses aren’t cheap. Option 2: You left the glass because you were civilized and continued to dream about adding to your fledging collection.

Well the Buffalo Wing Factory is giving YOU the chance to put on your klepto shoes this Friday without any of the unfortunate consequences that go along with theft. How? Simple. Come to the Chantilly BWF this Friday and order a beer by Fat Cat Beer Company and you get to take home a custom pint glass.

Fat Cat will be serving all five of their beers. Their IPA will be $6 in 16oz cans and the other four beers will be $4. Glasses and beer are limited though so make sure you show up early. The event runs from 7:00-10:00pm at the bar only.

Hold on, I have one more surprise for you. I can’t promise anything but at the time of this posting, all BWF locations still have a few remaining bottles of Hopslam. Get them while they last!

Lastly, there are 30+ other beers to choose from including Sweet Baby Jesus and a bunch of other local VA, MD and DC beers.

It is wedding season. Still. I attended my second wedding in less than a month (Here’s a recap of the first wedding). This time I went north to Philadelphia. Traveling, especially out of state, gives you a chance to really branch out when it comes to beer choices.

I wandered the streets of Philly and ended up where?

What do I love most about weddings? People from all around gather to celebrate the love of a common family member or friend. Meaning that if you don’t know someone attending the wedding, you have a better chance of getting along with him or her than a random person. I met another bridemaid’s significant other and hit it off with him. We had the whole day to ourselves while our ladies were doing whatever bridemaids do the day of the wedding so we hit the streets of Philly in search of cheesesteaks and beer. Continue reading
