Hey PG!

Can you believe it’s November already? The holidays are right around the corner (message me directly if you need my wishlist 🙂 ) and it’s time for us to cook up some chili, vote on some new board members, and start making plans for our big end of year party!

First Friday is THIS FRIDAY at Maple Block Meat Company here in Culver city. The service, food, and beer selection has turned Tania and I into regulars lately and I can’t wait to share it with you. We’ll be arriving around 7:30pm and staying until at least 10pm. If you’re in the neighborhood, thirsty and/or hungry, stop on by!

November’s Club Meeting is THIS SATURDAY at the Molloy’s house in Westchester. A few important things to remember about the meeting:

The meeting is a few weeks early this month, so don’t miss out!  The Molloys were generous enough to host us (again) and this weekend was the best fit for their schedule. Remember, it’s a private residence so carry-in & carry-out and be on your best behavior!

  • The President, Vice President and Treasurer board positions are up for nomination and we’ll start collecting votes on Saturday. We’ll also begin voting on Club Member of the Year and we’re still accepting nominations for that award as well.
    • Want to nominate someone? Email board @ with their name and which position you’re nominating them for. We’ll get them on the ballot if you email before FRIDAY.
  • Food will come in the form of our annual Club Chili Cook Off and all members are invited to bring a crock pot of homemade chili to enter.  Last year’s cook off was so much fun, looking forward to see who brings what! 😀        If you don’t make chili, we’ll happily accept corn bread or sides too. 🙂
  • Our commercial tasting style is Meads and Ciders, hosted by Rives. He gave me the 411 on some of the bottles he’s bringing and it sounds like we’re going to have a great lineup.
  • Best Beer of the Meeting competition will revolve around Meads & Ciders AND Smoked, Spiced, and Wood Aged beers. As usual, we’ll award a $25 Culver City Home Brewing Supply gift certificate to the winner.

There are still a few details to work out regarding the meeting Saturday so expect one more post before the week is over.

Looking forward to this weekend like 😀 😀 😀 !   See you there.
