I'll be spending approximately 100 percent of my time this weekend outside. I might even sleep outside, just set up a hammock on my front porch and zonk out. Other possibilities include a whole lotta beer stuff, some concerts and a Crew SC game. As always, here's what I'd do this weekend if I could be everywhere all the time.


Weird Beer Night at St. James Tavern

Expand your palette Friday evening with this lineup of intriguing brews, including the New Belgium Cherry Oscar Sour Ale, the New Belgium Cascara Quad-made with dates and coffee cherries, the Stone Odd Year Old Guardian Extra Hoppy Barley Wine, Wolf's Ridge Brewing's Pineapple IPA, and more.
