Tonight in CRAFT BEER: Winter Beer Night At Barcade. Joel's last spins at POPE.

Tonight-  Barcade Philly will kick off their inaugural winter beer night.
I got a text from Victory Manager Pete Danford about it last week...and knew I would probably make it- but one look at the lineup and the probably is now a definitely.

Tonight is one of those nights- that my body and all it's still functioning organs should be recovering from the craze of the holidays...but instead I will attend not one- but two events since Dr. Joel's last hurrah will be at POPE - with DJ's Adam Ritter (or Sidecar fame), Denjams, Dr. Joel, and Jersey Dan of Sixpoint.

  1. I knew taking a month off of drinking would eventually hurt.
    I just didn't think it would've set in so soon.
