Weekend Eve Open Thread

Good Morning!

I was able to catch part of the game last night while I was at work, from what I saw, meh on both teams. Someone had to win, someone had to lose; but we all lose having the hear a certain team is back this year...blah, blah, blah. Also I’m going to start doing a Saturday thread only for the weekends due to the Vikings finally starting to play. Meanwhile, let’s carry on with our news and links open thread full of beer recommendations, nap strategies, crock pot and smoker recipes. Drop by for some fan wisdom, snark and go ahead leave work early it’s weekend eve!

Again, we all know the rules, but in case someone is new:
-No discussion of politics or religion
-No feeding of the trolls
-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 to tip your waiter, don’t tip the cows and Welcome Aboard!
