We are very happy to be partnering with Team Up for Diabetes this Sunday night. We will be coloring some beers blue on Sunday and donating to them a portion of the proceeds from the entire evening. You can also snack on some blue cupcakes from the Cake Shop. The goal of Team Up for Diabetes is:
This mission of this FIRST Team Type 1 “indoor cycling marathon” fundraiser is to promote diabetes awareness and exercise as one particular way of taking control of diabetes and obesity (which can lead to Type 2 diabetes). The funds you donate or raise will provide diabetes camp scholarships for children to be educated about living with diabetes. The money you raise or donate is also for insulin and diabetic supplies to be delivered by the team as well as sent to Rwanda on behalf of Team Type 1 in concert with Rotarian Action Group for Diabetes support of the International Diabetes Federation’s Life for A Child Program in Rwanda.
So on Sunday you can help out diabetic children in Rwanda BY DRINKING BEER. That is about as awesome as charity gets.
Not enough? Then stick around that same night for our monthly Irish Music Gathering at 8:00 and then stay with us as we watch the debut of Brewmasters at 10:00. The first episode is all about the creation of Dogfish Bitches Brew, a beer which infamously lasted less than thirty minutes at the lounge before we were sold out. We are thinking that we will tap our keg of Olde School Barleywine for the occasion.
Other notes for the week: Stoned & Lonesome String Band is back this Monday at 9:00, and The Zach Bartholomew Trio returns Tuesday at 9:00. Fermentation Market continues to come together, and you can follow the progress here. December 3 is still our target date to open.
