I had a great time celebrating St. Patrick’s with my friends last night. I planned to drink local beer as my “green” beer, but the first bar we went to didn’t have any! I settled for an organic beer from New Belgium, based in Colorado – Mothership Wheat. And, well, it wasn’t my favorite. It tasted like… meat.
I don’t know why I look drunk here. I’d had approximately 1 sip of beer so far. It’s my don’t-show-my-braces-smile, I guess!
Later we went to Rogue, where we had some great beer brewed in Oregon. The Mocha Porter and Hazelnut Brown Nectar were delicious! But they were served in plastic cups! Boo! I know bars sometimes do that when they’re preparing for big crowds, but I’m thinking of writing a letter or a review asking them to stick to glass. It never hurts to reach out! I did have the bartender reuse our cups when we got another round, though. Hey, every bit helps! I had my friend Kim take a funny picture of me making a sad face at the plastic cup, but I’ll have to get it from her.
Here are some fun pictures of me & my friends throughout the night! I’m in green, of course!
All the girls!
Does my hair look shiny?
Off for a day of thrift shopping with my sister! Hopefully I’ll find some cool stuff – buying second-hand is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint!
