I hear about a beer event hosted by Wil Wheaton in Pasadena, so of course I was nagging Christopher that we should go because he was going to be serving the beer. Wil not Christopher that is.
So off we went to hold a place at the bar, and of course with that comes drinking, EARLY!! They were only 4floz, 8floz and a pint sizes. So we started on the 4floz.
When the event started the masses of people also came. Along with Wil and his wife Anne. Of course they were very warmly welcomed.
All I could think was “Bryn will be so jealous”
This was the poster I got from Twitter. There was also a list of the beers on there too. 10% of the beer sales for the night went to the Pasadena Humane Society.
These our second lot of beers, the 03.03.03, Double Bastard with Chipotle spices and the beers that Wil was promoting his very own W00tstout. And Oh My God they were all just our cup of tea (I know how British).
Here are some shots of him serving other people. We could be patient.
But, then our turn came.
These were the W00tstout continuing the drinking, 09.09.09 and 07.07.07. The one that is nearly full is the 09.09.09 we only asked for the 4floz but Wil over heard a conversation about Mars
The picture below is Wil Wheaton serving us our drinks.
Sorry I got bumped whilst he was serving our drinks
Needless to say we had a really good night and we kept our spot all night at the bar.
There was a food festival on South Lake avenue a few weeks ago which we attended. There was obviously the food shops on Lake with stands some with ny favourite things freebies and some items being sold.
But the main thing we actually went for was the music. It started with Dustbowl Revival, if I have any regular followers you will recognise the name as we have seen the band three times now.
The next band who played were classed as Country Rock, of course first thought was that I wouldn’t listen to them. I was quiet surprised especially when I knew a large majority of the songs. Including this song by Eric Church All You Gotta Do is Put a Drink In My Hand.
We even had line dancers to this song doing the Electric Slide.
The band was called Dawson’s Gang.
The next and final band were the main reason we went as we went to see if they could do a family orientated show.
As you can guess they are an 80’s tribute band and usually are very adult humour, we saw them for the first time in a bar which they frequently perform at. We both thought they did a very family orientated show with jokes that anyone under 12 may not have got.
But over all it was a very good day.
I will be back next week with a Wheaton beer event.
