35 days until I catch my flight.  I like this better since it is sooner.  I have a 3 hour layover in Chicago around 9:30am...would that be too early to have a beer?  :o  That's assuming they are serving at that time.

Well, when I head over to Seahawk games, I often catch the 9:30 ferry accross puget sound.  And I figure it's time to start having a beer as soon as I'm on the boat. 

I'm sure they will be serving at that time.  You gonna go to the Pike dinner Tuesday night?  The musuem room at their place is worth seeing.

Good Point.  I do the same with the Patriots games here in New England ( except for that ferry thing  ;D ). 

I'm not going to the dinner Tuesday night.  Probably hit the local spots (Rock Bottom etc ).  I'm going on a tour Wednesday then BNA7 on Wed night, I hope.

Well, you should try to get to Pike's at some point while you are in town.....

And I'm eagerly awaiting the BNA email as well.

I am counting down here too!

My wife and I are doing the Pike Brewery Dinner. It will be our 2nd Anniversary dinner.

TheDarkSide, if you have a rental car (Or aren't afraid of the bus) Hit up Black Raven and Issaquah Brewhouse. Either of them are on bus routes. Rock Bottom isn't bad, but it isn't great either. Much better beer is outside Bellevue unfortunately.
In a Keg: Flanders Red Ale, Rye Altbier, Cascade/Topaz Pale
Fermenting: Flanders Red, Saison
