The last day of 2017...wow! So I'm finishing off the year with a final blog post for the year. We had a pretty relaxing day...resting for the "big event" tonight, I guess...LOL!
When we arrived here, almost two weeks ago, we had lunch with Dave and Diane (and Red and Pam, too)...and figured we'd have lots of time to see them again before we left. Well, here we are...two weeks is up on Wednesday and we haven't gotten together again.. Whatever happened to those two weeks? Anyway, yesterday Dave suggested we meet for lunch today...perfect!
We met at the Thirsty Donkey Tap House and Sports Grill...and what a cool place! They have 40 self-serve beers on tap including a few ciders. They take your drivers license and then give you a wrist-band that unlocks the taps when you place it against the donkey symbol. There is a touch screen above each tap that lists the beer, alcohol % and IBU. Touch the screen and it opens to pouring instructions and a description of the beer. You can try as much and as many as you want...only paying for the ounces you have taken. You can use small glasses to make a flight, room temperature glasses so the beer doesn't foam up as much, or a frosted glass. We've never seen a pub set up this way...an amazing idea! They also a have a full service bar with regular beer.
We basically chilled the rest of the afternoon. We did managed to get a blog for the previous 3 days done and posted...and that's about it.
Just after 6:30 we headed down to the Club House and joined 90 other party'ers gathering to bring in the New Year. Karen and Wayne had saved spots at their table for us...and we met lots of new folks also sitting at the long table. It was pretty packed with 92 people, a dance floor and band (they also had snacks set up in the kitchen)...
