    Yes, we are part promoting a tap takeover regardless of our feelings about them. ;)

    S & B will also have some beer cocktails on hand.

    We won't be closing the place out, though I am sure we'll make it there for 5pm and won't be leaving for a while. If it is well past 7pm we might end up at The Black Squirrel or something else close by. So many events this week ... :eek:
