It’s a Gas, Man
Sarah

Happy Monday to all! If a rainy Monday night in Chicago isn’t enough of an excuse for you to come out drinking, then I don’t understand where your priorities line up, to be honest. Let’s take a quick moment to review everything we learned last night: Top Gear has yet to be fully Americanized into its own series, but they are getting close with the rebooted BBC version recruited Matt LeBlanc to host. Classic dystopian novels are having a moment,

You're so Smart My Head Hurts
Amber

Hopefully Sarah makes it back next week all healed and with all her marbles.  Did any of you ever play marbles, or am I ancient?  It was lovely getting to know all of you and play with you for an evening.  Perhaps I’ll get to come back soon to rock again at Beef & Barley, but under less painful circumstances for your regular host.  In the meantime, Pancakes in Love, keep having the most adorable and edible name in Geeks Who Drink.  Leo, keep schooling Hitler’s Concentration Club Sandwich.  You seem like great pals, thumb-wrestling to the death, then giving the belt away in good spirits for good

NC Double YAY
Sarah

Happy Monday from dreary Chicago! Tonight’s official winner of the unofficial Beef & Barley Team Name Contest is We Don’t Care About Your Fucking Cats, Brenda because woo boy that little diddy entertained me (and possibly only me) all night long.

Happy Monday to all! The last Monday of March and (hopefully) the last of our chilly winter weather leftovers. Tonight’s official winner of the unofficial Beef & Barley Team Name Contest is Douche Nation (with Crazy Ira and the Douche) because lest we forget, Pawnee’s town slogan was almost “Welcome to Douche Nation” and also I really like to try to say “Douche Nation” in Nick Kroll’s voice.

Sarah

Happy Monday! Congratulations to all that braved that little enigma known as Chicago weather last night, truly they deserved a hero’s welcome.

Way to go B&B crew you guys rock! Tonight’s official winner of the unofficial Beef & Barley Team Name Contest is And the Oscar Goes to….(Enter variation of Benedict Cumberbatch’s Name Here)
