Labor Day Weekend Coming Right Up – Got Plans?

September 4th, 2009 · 8 Comments · Polls

I love both Labor Day and Memorial Day weekends. It’s always a chance to go do something fun, or stay around town and explore a bit. Anyone doing anything exciting? Whatever you do, make sure to grab some of those great fall beers starting to hit the shelves…

    As for us, it’s off to Potlatch State Park on the Olympic Peninsula….with a stop by Silver City Brewing!

    Bumbershoot for me. Trying to think of ways to sneak in good homebrew so I don’t have to drink Budweiser or a flask of Jack Daniels the whole weekend 🙁

    go to the liquor store on LQA and get airplane bottles. jack and coke. we did it a few years ago and it was perfect b/c the stadium doesn’t have any booze.

    for me, i am kicking it with a newborn girl. raising the beer closet.

    the mini bottles are indeed the only way to do Bumbershoot…not worth it to fight the crowds in the beer gardens.

    Yeah, I always sneak in a flask and some minis for my friends, but I was trying to think of ways to get in beer since I’d prefer that over liquor. Maybe I could a beer boobs pack for a female friend. 🙂

    Or just use a couple opaque water bottles in my backpack. They don’t ban water bottles until you go to the main stage in the stadium.

    Just about to hit the road to Whatcom County, where we’ll visit all the usuals in B-ham: Boundary Bay, Green Frog, Chuckanut. We might even make it out to North Fork. Stopping in Mt. Vernon for lunch (Skagit Brewery on the way there, and Porterhouse Pub on the way back).

    Yesterday I biked the Olympic Discovery Trail from Sequim Bay State Park to Port Angeles (the trail eventually will connect to Port Townsend). It is quite beautiful – crosses several covered wooden bridges – and you see so much cool
    new stuff that you typically miss just driving on 101. We rode 50 miles with enough hills to induce quad burns. On the way back, my buddy Paul & I stopped for a pint at Hood Canal Brewery…a fun *little* place. The last time we went there a fragrant batch of Dabob Bay IPA was brewing right next to our picnic table.

    Watched the Huskies come reasonably close to pulling off a huge upset. Last night hit the new Porterhouse Pub in the W Seattle Admiral district…really fun place…20 or so well-chosen taps, incl a beer engine – last night Bigtime Coal Creek Porter on cask – plus a cool vibe & really tasty food…such as fries w/ Parmesan & truffle salt. Also a nice outdoor beer garden – which as you’ve noted Geoff – Seattle can use more of …especially compared to Portland.

    I’m hanging around the house with my newborn son, celebrating with my Chimay Red clone that is darker than the original, but otherwise, perfect.
