I just wanted to post a quick update that we went to The Lost Abbey Mardi Gras celebration this last weekend. Of course the beer was phenomenal. The music was fine, the crowd was enthusiastic, but the food. . . well. . . that was a different story. Instead of doing what my husband, daughter and boyfriend did (eat around the fat, toss the rest), I wanted to get my money’s worth and ate the meat. It was tasty, well seasoned, but so much fat that I got sick. Yes, I did have one too many beers, but I’ve had quite a bit more before and while maybe not felt perfect, no upset stomach. This time I had to keep my head down the whole drive home 🙁 Oh well. But we did get to keep our interesting glasses and a bottle of beer. I may try that this weekend, or next. We’ll see. I do know that I just signed up for our next beer event, a beer pairing at BJ Brewery with Rogue beer next week! I’ll try to take more notes, and pictures for that event!
