Beer has taken on a life of its own in the past few years. Wine tasting was very popular for a long time, and still is among certain groups, but now beer tasting has become the new trend. With Pub Restaurants popping up in cities everywhere, and new flavors coming on to the scene, how could people not flock to this new trend. There are lists, and rankings of the best beers for your parties, and games you can play at parties with beer and even Beer Olympics. For the more refined, beer tasting is now a popular activity, similar to wine tasting, here is a link on how to properly taste beer. There are also plenty of beer festivals to attend, here is a complete list of those, so that you don’t miss out! One last thing to mention, are beer trains, here is a link to one in Sacramento and they have one that leaves out of Oakdale, CA as well, but it looks to be hit and miss. Whatever event you do, please just make sure to call a cab, Uber, Lyft, or some other designated driver to get you home, be safe out there! Have a great weekend!
Happy St. Patty’s Day!!! Around the U.S. we hold many celebrations for St. Patrick’s Day, the day when everyone turns a little Irish. The first parade occurred in New York in 1762, and since we have continued to grow. In Chicago, they turn the river green every year. Boston always holds a large parade in South Boston “Southie”, and Dropkick Murphy’s performs every year at House of Blues. In New York they still have the tradition of their parade, but here is a complete list of things to do, so that you can find what suits you best!
For those of us on the West Coast, we have plenty of opportunities to celebrate too. In San Francisco, you can enjoy the annual parade, next year, as it took place on March 11th this year, but the Holiday Block Party is happening on the 17th, so still festivities to enjoy!! In Los Angeles, they have a Parade, and pub crawls, like everywhere, they also have a number of races you can check out for those of you wanting something a little healthier.
If you are really into the celebrating you could hit up parties (or races) on the East and West Coasts, and still get back in time to work on Monday! Now that would be some incredible dedication!!! Whatever you decide, please have fun, and be safe, and if you are going to hit the town, please call Lyft, or Uber, or ca cab, for paid rides, AAA for a free ride, or maybe even try a parent, or friend. It is only ignorant if you don’t ask.
