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.
Not to be one of “those” girls, but it’s the most wonderful time of the year. To be clear, I don’t care about pumpkin spice flavored things (GINGERBREAD TIL I’M DEAD) nor do I ever wear a Halloween costume. I just like fall. I’m really in it for the haunted houses/hay rides/forests. My first career goal was to be an actor in a haunted house. That hasn’t really panned out. Like most of my life.
But, as with all good things that we truly enjoy, religion is trying to ruin haunted houses for everyone by turning them into gross morality plays to scare kids into being good people. Because that’s how you make someone good–scare tactics.
Anyway, according to NewsOK.com:
Happy Monday, everyone. How are we doing? Good? Have you noticed that I’ve been writing this here column for a while now (I’m not sure how long, the Mondays all run together) and I still haven’t figured out a good, graceful way to introduce this column every week? Typically I reference hangovers at least once, and sleeping at my desk–both things I do every Monday. And other days of the week as well. I wish I had more to offer, but I do not. I guess I could make small talk.
Anyone see Boardwalk Empire last night? No?
Anyway, I guess you should just read these tweets. That’s why you’re here. As always, this week’s tweets are after the jump.
