Tempting. I may try to make my way to this one - haven't been able to make this in years past.

Tempting, hell! 'Tempting' is that hot new secretary they hired down in Purchasing. This is Masstoberfest! This is one of life's great moments.






Actually, that secretary would probably be one of life's even greater moments, but you know what I mean.

Always been willing to recognize a good idea when I see one and been even more willing to adopt it. So I'm going down into my cellar and breaking out the Mass glasses and we're going to have a Stein Hoisting Contest at Masstoberfest. I believe I have at least 5, if any of you guys have one bring it along. Maybe that's what we can use to determine who wins the Masstoberfest Cup. Imagine the bragging rights!

BTW, talked to Mrs Babalu today. The big guy will be there!

Bird tells me he's going to bring his Teddy Ballgame Stein. While a Splendid Splinter Stein is undeniably cool, I got $20 my wife kicks his ass.

I had no idea what you were talking about with this "Stein Hoisting" contest until you told me. I know I won't win, but I guara-****ing-T I can hold out longer than the tubby ****. You want to make it interesting, big guy?

Stein Hoist- (n) a competition, generally held at beer festivals, in which competitors are each given a full stein of beer to hold out parallel to the ground, using one hand, only until they are no longer able to do so. The person who holds their stein out the longest wins.

Pardon the interruption, just thought it might be worth mentioning an actual brewers event happening soon...
http://www.massbrewersguild.org/craft-beer/index.php/2011/06/587/

Sadly, I'll be battling the unwashed masses on I-90/84/684/87/287/78 traveling to visit relatives...

Cheers!

With sarcasm like that in your armamentorium you'd be a natural at Masstoberfest, Tripper. Hope you can make it. You should hook up with bird and road trip out together.

Of course, there would be that uncomfortable silence on the drive home after he gets schooled by all the ladies at the Masstoberfest Stein Hoist.

THAT'S your big "I'm going to try to make my piddly little party different from my idol Cape's in some way" idea??? Who can hold a beer mug longest???

Wow. How can I turn down such riviting entertainment???

Can you imagine if I didn't show and then had to live with the horror of knowing someone held a mug for like... THREE MINUTES... and I MISSED it!?!?
