Welcome to your weekend open thread, I noticed some states are opening up for business, if the location you live in is opening do us all a favor and be smart and stay safe. Today is my 28th wedding anniversary, normally we go to St. Augustine and spend the weekend there but theviruswedonottalkabouthere has the restaurants in St. Augustine closed for now; so we’re going to get take out from somewhere and get a really nice bottle of wine to share. I was planning on going to the Tampa Bay game, but of course I have to work. The CFO approved a trip to New Orleans on Christmas Day for the annual Saints late game win, but of course I have to work. Meanwhile we’ll carry on with our news and links full of crockpot recipes, nap strategies and beer recommendations; drop by for some fan wisdom, snark and be safe if you venture out, avoid social interaction except for here and have a great weekend.

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 wash your hands, don’t touch your waiter’s face and Welcome Aboard!
