    OK, I see. Quirky rule, but at least you can get normal beer at a liquor store. I was going to offer to bootleg some beer, with normal alcohol content, up there to you 2. Tiger fans get exceptionally thirsty on gameday.

    TX still has some odd rules too.

    No, I have not seen it yet.

    However, if you like blonde ales: Have you tried Southern Star's Blonde Bombshell?

    Yep, I highly recommend this one. While you're at it try Southern Star's Pine Belt Ale, one of my personal favorites.

    This is *not* a comprehensive list. I think we had over 30 beers for sampling. I tried to post a picture of our beer tent (I decorate it with all of the boxes so we can see what we've got), but I can't from work.

    Good times were had by all!

    Have you even gone by and said hi to Okie, yet? Can't switch krewes if you refuse to show your face!

    We also had something called Skull Splitter. Must not've been very good because I still have a lot of it left.
