Festivus at Rustico

AARP Holiday Decorations

My boyfriend sent out the following email to our group of friends yesterday, and I’m so lazy I’m just going to copy/paste it for WLDC.

Matt: “Rustico in Alexandria is holding a Festivus celebration next Tuesday (the 9th), from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. There will be a good selection of winter beers on tap (and over 200 hundred bottles to choose from), the Festivus pole, and the airing of grievances. If you like beer OR don’t like the commercial side of the holidays OR have something to get off your chest OR just enjoy spending time with friends, then this is the thing for you.”

Personally, I never watched Seinfeld (gasp, screams, the horror, I know, whatever…) and so I don’t get what all this is about. But I do know that Rustico will be serving Troegs’ Mad Elf, which Troegs’ Web site describes as: “a cheerful creation to warm your heart and enlighten your tongue. The combination of Cherries, Honey, and Chocolate Malts delivers gentle fruits and subtle spices. Fermented and aged with a unique yeast, this ruby red beer has significant warming strength that underlies the pleasant character of this intriguing yet delicious Ale.” Yeah, yeah, I’m lazy today with all this copy/pasting, but at least I’m still enlightening to you, dear reader.

So, basically, point is, I’ll be there. You should come too. And then you should find me and buy me some Mad Elf, since you like reading things that I copy/paste so much.

  1. I think I should get author credit on this daily feed item. Will I receive any compensation for my services?

    A beer at Festivus would suffice.
