Hogan’s Hideaway is hosting the first annual Three Heads Brewing Music Festival during the Park Ave. Fest on August 6th and 7th. There will be five beers on tap, two from TJ Sheehans and all three of Three Heads IPA’s. This is a free event and I can’t think of better way enjoy one of Rochester’s best Summer Festivals. There will be a tent for some relief from the sun and bathroom facilities. You can also check out Hogan’s Hideways new remodeled bar. Hogan’s Hideway is located at 197 Park Avenue near Goodman Street. Check out the great lineup of bands scheduled for both days!

As this year winds to an end I’d like to thank everyone that’s gotten the occasional amusement from my blog or have posted my link on their site… I’ve been amazed by the number of hits/readers. I hope to improve on content and various aspects for the blog in the new year including taking it to it’s own domain. I find myself glad 2008 is coming to an end, it’s been full of up and downs for me, as I’m sure it has with many of you out there. I’m looking forward to 2009 and new discoveries of all things Rochester. I hope to visit Custom Brewcrafters new facility over the holidays while my parents are in town visiting, along with me and my father running through the isles of beers of the world like 2 kids in a candy store while my Mom roles her eyes at us as she waits patiently.

What’s everyone planning on drinking over the holiday?

Surely I’ll be sipping on a few bottles of Corsendonk Brown Ale thanks to a generous co-worker that gave me a 4 pack as thanks for a favor… She slyly had a co-worker ask me what my favorite beer was during the holidays and then went to Beers of the World and asked them if they had a beer by the name of Coors Endonk?!?!– lucky for me the clerk figured it out. I’m sure I will be also be enjoying a growler or two from Rohrbachs (Casey’s Christmas Ale) and Custom Brewcrafters as well as some long anticipated growlers of Homebrew from my Dad. So with that said I wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!- SALUDE!– Daron

Not to be missed, the year in photographs from the Boston Globe. Incredibly striking imagery.

The Fold In

When I was a kid growing up in rural Pennsylvania I was constantly looking for something to amuse myself, I couldn’t walk to the mall or whip out my skateboard and go cruising. Well I guess I could but cruising down a country road on my skateboard wasn’t exactly the kind of street terrain I craved. Basically it was read, ride your bike or “go play outside” as my Mom would say. So when my Mom made the weekly trip to grocery store I would usually jump at chance to tag along. Why? – the magazine isle of course, I would sit there in isle while she shopped reading as much as I could. My favorites mags being MAD and Cracked. The highlight of the MAD magazine was the back cover fold in, what could it possibly be, was it really going to have a dual meaning once folded? – well of course it did and this is the guy that’s been doing the fold in all those years. Cool! Check out the article: FOLD IN The fold in were also just featured in an interactive post over a the NY Times COOL!!
