Beer and… Yea Just Beer!

Yesterday, Huck and I went to Downtown Abacoa for Baseball and Brews at The Roger Dean Stadium. For $20 we got tickets to the baseball game and beer festival. We have been talking about going to a baseball game since we moved here, but for one reason or another, we haven’t. We met Deena and some other girls I met on our Magic Mike Night there and were ready for some beer. As we were in line to go in, I noticed this sign.

Does this make anyone else feel old??

We were provided a cup and headed for the beer tents.

The beer festival was from 530-830 and the game started at 630. We thought we would drink some beer, watch the game, and drink more beer.

At some point, we walked over to the game to see what was going on.

There was NO ONE watching the game.

Everyone was drinking beer. We felt bad for the players because they were stuck playing instead of drinking beer.  We never made it back to the game.

Huck and I shared a hotdog at some point. I was hungry and heavy beer can make me feel sick on an empty stomach. Hotdog was probably not the best option but it worked.

My favorite Picture from the night!

After the hotdog break, it was back to more beer.  My favorite of the day was Terrapin Brewery Easy Rider. It is a Hopped Up Summer Ale. It was very flavorful but still light. Right up my alley, and I have to represent my local brewery.

** One year for Valentines Day, I told Huck we were going to a play but I wouldn’t tell him where or when. I wanted him to think we were doing something “boring”. Really, I planned for us to go to Terrapin Brewery for a tour and beer sampling. Yes, I am the best girlfriend/fiancée/almost wife ever! He was excited and we both had fun. I recommend a trip if you are ever in Athens, GA.**

By the time the beer festival was over, things started looking fuzzy…

We walked to Jumby Bay for more beer. I had one and threw in the towel. I was done! Deena’s friend ordered 2 plates of nachos for the table and they were the best nachos ever (and I do not think it was because I was drunk and hungry. They were really good!!) Around 11PM, Huck and I walked home and called it a night. 

This morning, we woke up feeling surprisingly good, when Nate called and asked if we wanted to go out on his boat. Sounded like a plan to me!

We did a little house hunting while we were out too. I think this one would doSmile

And this boat is bigger than our house!

We parked and did some snorkeling, too. Luckily I brought our water proof camera. Even though this was the only picture that came out.


After getting off the boat we were hungry! We stopped by Bumboo Wok. I ordered Shrimp and Veggies.

Huck ordered Celery and Shrimp Kung Pao Shrimp. They both were good minus all the celery.

Now it is time to be lazy! I’m stuck watching How States Got Their Shapes now. I find this show very interesting.
