    At my local watering hole for the first time in a while. They have Double Daisy Cutter on tap for a dollar cheaper than regular Daisy Cutter. Both 16oz.

    Yeah they're a franchise, they originated in Tampa, I like the growth potential and they are a fairly new franchise. So much for the Craft Beer industry being unsustainable, what a twat that guy was. Anyways I leave Chicago for good next Saturday, it's been a slice Hapsters.

    Taking Metra to the Oak Park thing. If stay to eat dinner with Fed, Mo and Deuce I'll green line it back, otherwise Metra haps.

    If I use green line I'm getting off at Ashland instead of a hott block. Maybe I can recreate my rape culture haps at Cobra Lounge for sycked

    I think I said it when like 47 microbreweries opened in one north side neighborhood in a single week. The idea being that the growth rate was "unsustainable" and that a lot of these guys' investors / dads would lose their money (which certainly has been the case). Then INR jumped on it (along with thoughts, prayers, excessive speed, and a lack of military service).

    Probably Loftus took it wrong and argued that we'd all go back to drinking Bud Light one day. Who knows.

    That indeed would be a case of unsustainabilty, or excessive speed, etc.

    Well Mo is right that in the sense that all these microbreweries didn't last. Craft beer in general though, is here to stay

    :lol: at anybody pretending to predict Chicago weather even a couple of days in advance.

    At his point, "rain all day" = "we think it might rain somewhere in the metro area during some point in the day."

    Forecast today says quarter to half inch of rain possible. Looks like most of it will be in the morning though.

    Like I posted in the other thread, my weather app couldn't accurately predict the rainfall this morning ten minutes before it started absolutely fucking pouring. Weird shit happens when fronts get near the lake.
