This is St. Patty’s day weekend. Lots of Irishness, but also a bit of Poe. At the Westminster Church this past Saturday, they have a yearly Cask of Amontillado Tasting Among the Bones, a day of music, costumes… and crypts. *cue ominous music* There was also booze sampling and some very good cheese and grapes. This is now gonna be A Thing on my yearly social calendar.
Today, I headed out for a pint of Guinness, and the folks at Pickles Pub made it all purty. Mmmmm, art tastes good.
Oh, and lest you think all I did this weekend was drink, I did make some lamb stew. What I Learned: adding too much stout to a stew makes it bitter. A touch of brown sugar fixes it pretty well.
