Total Electric Wizard weather the day of this fest. Dismal, damp, bleak, and an hour plus line just to get inside because of the one-in, one-out policy. If the girl who was dressed up as a French stereotype reads this, we wanted to find you and bludgeon you with your baguette once we got inside because you thought it was, “oh so clever” to have your man-friend stand in line, while you and your horde of ladyfriends sat inside a nearby pub, nice and warm, until you all flocked to join him when he was up at the admission table. Seriously, all of the cutters were these kids in elementary school:
Despite the grim prognosis for a late-October nor’easter, my friend and I are still venturing to Boston to partake in the Occupy solidarity march, and then we are going to Cambridge Brewing Co. for The Great Pumpkin Ale Festival. It goes from 1 p.m. to 12:30 a.m., and for $10, you get a free pint glass, and access to over 40 different breweries boasting their pumpkin ales. Not to mention, at 10 p.m. a giant pumpkin filled with ale gets tapped, and naturally, served.
If you don’t have an affinity for pumpkin beer, and happen to live in Southeastern MA, tomorrow there is a tasting at the grand opening of Wines and More in Wareham, from 12-4:30. It’s located in Wareham Crossing, and there will be different wines and beers for the sampling, all for the low cost of free fifty free! Be sure to come sample some ‘Gansett and say hi to me!
