(OR) Wandering the Hop Fields, July 21st, 2009

     The weekend is fast approaching for those anticipating the waft of hops and alcohol interplayed with cigarettes, cigars, and fried food. Most with ‘nine to five’ full time occupations more than likely won’t risk once brain-cell to participate at the Oregon Brewer’s Festival until that last second strikes five-o-clock. The reward for being obedient for a sheer forty hours this week, beer and lots of it.

     Most will consume a few four ounce tastes and have a sense of accomplishment all the while making their ways home. Those select few that treat their bodies like a charge account will wake up the next day with headaches, cotton mouths, and an abysmal cavity where last night’s cheeseburger was.

Hotel Monaco has the cure for your Friday night OBF Indulgence
