That's about it:

I will try to find out if Radio Maria and Crane are open for Christmas (I'm pretty sure Crane is, not sure of Radio).

If you are looking to try a bunch of Holiday beers, go to Blind Pig and get 3 samplers, there were 11 Holiday's on tap last night, including Ridgeway Lump of Coal, which is a good stout. Blind Pig Brewery claims 3 house beers on tap, I missed the Grissette :( Skot said it was pretty good, although I probably wouldn't like the spices.

My week schedule is looking like this:

Friday: Happy Hour at Radio, then off to Ty and Lindz
Saturday: BBCAmerica at 4:30 until I overdose on Doctor Who (The Next Doctor, Planet of the Dead, Waters of Mars)
Sunday: Baby shower for Frank and Dana; gathering at Suzie's
Monday: dinner with Evan at Monicals, attempt to drink all the beer at Blind Pig (probably)
Tuesday: open
Wednesday: purchase steaks
Thursday: get annoyed
Friday: grill steaks, go to Seven Saints to keep Andy company

New Years Eve is still supposed to be drinking at Steve and Ann's; although that may have changed, but I'm not sure. If it's moved to Kridz, then you, reading this, are invited.
