What’s on tap for everyone this weekend? I’m thinking about smoking a pork shoulder Sunday morning but otherwise no big plans. 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 it’s the weekend, get the smoker started, get all your outdoor chores done early, and have a beer or two, it’s going to be a great weekend!
Around the DN since our last open thread:
Vikings news from other sources:
5 Observations: Vikings Unveil New-Look Offensive Line, Cornerback Group.
Cam Smith in ‘Good Place’ Ahead of Heart Surgery & ‘Driven to Return’
Presser Points: Zimmer Getting Vikings Prepared with No Preseason.
We come to today’s media selection: Joe Walsh - Life’s Been Good
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, try the buffet and Welcome Aboard!
