Many thanks to Gone Fishin for posting the thread for me yesterday, I knew I was going to be working well after midnight and I wasn’t going to have the energy to do the thread. First beer on on me Fishin! Meanwhile, I’m exhausted, it’s time to carry on with our news and links open thread full of beer recommendations, nap strategies, crock pot and smoker recipes.

Again, we all know the rules, but in case someone is new:
-No discussion of politics or religion
-No feeding of the trolls
-This isn’t a male version of The View, so leave the gender hatred at the door
-Keep the bad language to a minimum (using the spoiler tags, if you must)
-Speaking of which, if discussing a newer show or movie, please use spoiler tags
-No pictures that could get someone fired or in serious trouble with their employer
-If you can’t disagree in a civil manner, feel free to go away
-While navigating the open thread, just assume it’s sarcasm.
With that, the beer light is on and the bar is open. Belly up & tie one on. Don’t forget annoy your waiter, try the Frijoles and as always, Welcome Aboard!
