Happy Monday, everyone. I’m currently typing this from Alabama, which I can say is a terrible place. I’ve experienced parts of the Deep South during this trip that would make great horror movie fodder. Don’t ever let your east or west coast cousins try to tell you that Oklahoma is backward or full of hicks. Because even our more backward small town is better than any spot I’ve been to in Alabama.
Anyway, it’s good to know that once I step off the plane, I’ll be back in Oklahoma where things always stay the same. Like this, for example:
Sometimes I like to wonder how many of my neighbors are swingers. Logically speaking, a certain percentage of them must be. I’m a little said that it’s not the sort of neighborhood where we have block parties, because I think I could figure it out by just having a conversation with these people. As it stands, I’m only vaguely capable of figuring out which neighbors are on crack based and who likes to start large-scale construction projects around 2 AM.
Luckily for me, the fine folks at AshleyMadison.com have it all figured out when it comes to who is cheating on who in Oklahoma City. According to KFOR.com:
Happy Monday to everyone. How many of you are reading this from your fancy pants new iPhone 6 Plus? Just kidding. No one cares about your new phone. You know why? BECAUSE IT’S A PHONE. If you were reading it from a Nokia 5110, then we would care because we’d really like to know how you hacked that brick with an antenna to display websites. And we still kind of want to see if we can beat our old score on snake.
Anyway, as always, I’ve collected the best and the worst of the tweets from the week before, and I’ve placed them right here for you to enjoy. Don’t ever say I didn’t do nothing for ya. Get this week’s tweets after the jump.
Okay, so it’s Friday night, after work happy hour or you just want to come to the bar to watch some football with friends. Pop quiz hotshot: what do you drink???
The answer is not a “Red Bull and Vodka.” It’s not a cosmo. It’s not shots. The answer is beer, okay? BEER. But sometimes, as ladies, we’ve been socialized to drink flirtinis and accept the purple hooter shots from the creeper down at the other end of the bar. The world of beer can be intimidating and it’s tough to find something you like when the only beer you’ve really had access to has been Natty Light out of cooler at the lake. But that’s where the fine folks at TapWerks have you covered.
Yes, TapWerks. One of the OG’s of Bricktown and an Oklahoma City staple. They have tons of draft and bottle beers and their selection is always rotating. Well, have no fear! I’ve made a list of TapWerks beers guaranteed to appeal to the fairer sex so the next time you find yourself in Bricktown, you can place your order with confidence!
Check them out:
Black Mesa ESB
ESB stands for “extra special bitter” and it is tasty. Black Mesa is another great Oklahoma brewery, named after everyone’s favorite part of the panhandle that isn’t Beaver County. Usually ESBs are pretty malty, and not really sour, despite the name. Black Mesa throws some hops into theirs, making it a very American-style ESB. Also, it’s crazy delicious.
Editor’s Note: Hey there, it’s me! Did you really think I’d let someone write a post about beer on this site and not totally pull a Russell Westbrook and try to take it over? Yeah right. Anyway, this is Marisa’s list, but I accompanied her to TapWerks to try out some of the beers and take pics with my phone, which made this a tax deductible visit. Thanks Republicans!
Coop Horny Toad
Who doesn’t love a good Mexican beer? And what if you could take that beer and all it’s salt and lime accessories, but make it in Oklahoma? Coop did it.
Editor’ Note: I’ve probably had this beer a few hundred times at various hipster house parties and honestly never noticed it was a Mexican-style beer. That shows how non racist I am. Of course, that’s probably because I once got a private tour of the Coop brewery with Emily Sutton and we felt hops and malt and now whenever I think of Coop I see cumulonimbus clouds, gum drops and long for the good old days.
Happy Monday, and let’s settle in. A lot of tweeting happened last week because of the new iPhone, the State Fair, the anniversary of 9/11, and the weather got cool for like 2 days. So, upside–lots to cover. Downside–still no tweets from Deano. But that’s okay because Paul Folger totally made a pizza from scratch on Instagram, so I’m going to need you to settle in and get to reading.
As always, this week’s tweets are after the jump.
