With Hunahpu Day on the horizon I’ve had a few people reach out to me for recommendations on what else to do while in Tampa for the weekend. I’ve teased some of these pictures from our trip to Florida last year in the past but I’ve never actually done a post on the weekend so I figured now is as good of a time as any to share these pictures while giving a few recommendations.
Just a short post today. Friday Richard and I headed up to Saratoga to check out a few of the events going on for Saratoga Beer Week.
Naturally in between all of the great sights we visited while in DC, we needed to take a break and check out some of the great places to eat and drink in the city. We were only there for a few days so clearly we have a lot more to explore on our next trip, but these were some of our favorites this time around.
A few of us had the day off on Monday so some of the Team got together to finish packing up the rest of the beer and swag to send out to our Gang Bang targets. Some lucky sons of bitches are going to be receiving these bad boys sometime next week, with another box of fresh IPAs coming along a week before their bang date next month.
Visiting Washington DC has always been on our radar but until recently has only been something we’ve driven through on the way to or from our yearly trips to Florida. Each pass through is usually accompanied with some bewilderment of the monuments that we can see from the road, with some longing to actually visit them someday and spend a weekend doing some sightseeing and museum hopping. When one of Elise’s favorite artists was performing at the newly revitalized Lincoln Theater on Valentine’s Day, it gave us the opportunity to make such a trip happen.
Thursday night was the latest of Jared Kingsley of Remarkable Liquids’ beer dinners, this time at McGreivey’s in Waterford, featuring the beers from Dark Horse Brewing Company. Dark Horse, out of Marshall, MI, is known in the craft beer circles for their citrusy IPAs and big, roasty stouts. Oh, and turning down having their beer featured in a Nickleback video because “It’s shit rock and roll that doesn’t deserve to be on the radio”. Just awesome.
I’m not one to reblog things around here, but you gotta check out dontdrinkbeer taking on Tom ‘Taint’ Tarry after his comments here on FujOnTap earlier this week. Priceless.

You do not fuck with Tom Tarry. I know you are probably thinking “who in the name of taint sweat is Tom Tarry?” oh, I don’t know JUST THE SWOLEST FLEXER IN THE RESULTS GROUP:
If I have learned one thing recently, Tom Tarry will kick your nutsack inside out and turn it into a nice set of inverted ovaries if you attempt to talk shit on any of his beer events. Last week, FujonTap posted a satirical post calling out shitty beerfests:
