Beer, Lots of Beer

Welcome to the 6th floor.

Today’s contributors are: Ann, Sara, Tabitha, Frank, Billy and Scott.

Subject: Beer is Good! Beer is Good!

We’ve always been friendly to the new drinking holidays. We went to Brewfest last week, and we celebrated Repeal Day in December. This year there is a whole craft beer week starting with Brewfest, having beer specials and bar crawls all week and culminating in the Manhattan Cask Ale Festival the following weekend.

“You guys psyched for Craft Beer Week?!”

“You bet!”

“I actually am. They’ve really went all out. Bar crawls, beer festivals? If I still have a liver by next weekend..”

“It’s supposed to be a nice day. Wind in our hair, beer in our throats.”

“I don’t know if I’m up for any of those bar crawls all week though.”

“Oh you wuss. We don’t have to get completely trashed Every night. Some nights we can just chill and enjoy beer specials.”

“Yeah, that’s true. I enjoy all the cask ales actually. They’re usually so different. Very unbeerlike.”

“So we’re going to spend this weekend, most of this week, and next weekend pigging out on beer? I have to be honest..that sounds like a normal week.”

“Are you trying to ruin it? It’ll be a blast!”


“Aww..is little Annie grumpy?”

“Little Annie..haha. I like it.”

“Repeat it and die.”

“I think someone needs a beer.”

“Lucky we’re going to get some then.”

“And on Sunday we’ll get more beer, and mead! At the Renn Faire.”

“I almost forgot we’re going to the faire! I love that place, but I haven’t been in years.”

“That’s right. On Sunday we will time travel back to the middle ages.”

“I wonder if I’ll have cell reception.”

“You can’t use a cell phone in the middle ages! That’s just wrong!”

“I’m not going to use it much, I just need to check the Mets score once or twice.”

“Or 18 times.”

“You’re lucky, you don’t have to worry about the Yankees score. It doesn’t matter anymore.”

“Lucky that they’re eliminated…I’m not sure lucky is the right word.”

“So beer this weekend. What are we doing tonight?”


Tabitha and Ann together: “No!”

“Oh alright. We’ll have a sober night.”

“We’ll try to keep you distracted from the withdrawal.” Frank jokes.

“My hero!”

Exciting Plans

Welcome to the 6th floor

Welcome to the 6th floor.

Today’s contributors are: Ann, Sara, Frank, Billy and Scott.

Subject: The endless opportunities

We should have some fun this Saturday!”

Why specifically this Saturday? Win a big pot and have some money to burn?”

If that’s the case, let’s have you treat us all to an expensive steak house.”

Maybe I’m just tired of sitting in front of my computer and want to get out and have fun?”

You? No way.”

That’d be like Billy saying, ‘No thanks, I’m full’.”

That reminds me, I have a sandwich in the fridge to eat.” Billy pulls out a foot long sized package wrapped in Deli paper from the fridge.

Nice Billy! We could drink at Catalina’s.”

We always do that.”


We always do that too.”

Isn’t it possible we always do these things because they’re fun?”

Can’t we try something different once in a while?”


I don’t know…I talked to Sue yesterday, she’s moving to Fair Lawn, NJ in September and would love some help packing up her stuff.”

Fat chance!”

Doesn’t she have a new husband to help with that? I distinctly remember a wedding to some guy a couple of weeks ago. And weren’t there big burly brothers?”

I’m surprised you ‘distinctly’ remember anything from that night. I wasn’t sure they were going to be able to afford to move out after they got your bar tab.”

That’s my secret weapon. Remembering!”

Frank, you haven’t fully remembered a night of drinking in years.”

Oh come on! I’m not that bad! What about that night two weeks ago when we went to the bar after Dark Knight? I remember all of that!”

That’s because we mostly sat in silence watching the baseball games. Not much to remember.”

Fine then. Next time I’ll just forget whose turn it is to pay.”

So business as usual?”

As long as you don’t whip out four aces and exclaim ‘I win! You pay!’ we’ll be alright.”

And no more calling me fish..man, that doesn’t make any sense!”

How did this conversation go from thinking of a plan for Saturday to making fun of me?”

I’m good with anything. As long as it’s not sipping wine coolers and playing Go Fish.”

I’m with the no ‘Go Fish’ rule.”

I suppose we’ll just end up drinking, regardless. We could watch the Olympics and drink to that..”

One drink every time someone says ‘Michael Phelps’.”

Or not..we’d be drunk pretty fast at that rate.”

Guess we’ll come up with something last minute…as always.”

We could go to the Ren Faire..”

Yeah! Except I think Tab’s busy this Saturday afternoon. Another time.”

Olympics and drinking…we lead such exciting lives.”
