Not really working

MICHAEL SWAN: ANOTHER THING TO GAZE AT >>>

When I’m not staring out the window wishing I was kayaking, I’m reading Twitter. Federal Way artist Jesse Munoz posted a link to this video a few moments ago on Twitter. Now I’m looping and staring at this. Crap.

Beer Wars Thursday

STEPH DEROSA: DOCUMENTARY ABOUT BEER. YUM >>>

Film-Beer-wars-4_9 It’s been an exciting week around the Weekly Volcano headquarters, for many, many reasons. Tons of national fun events are coming to Tacoma, we have a podcast coming out this Friday, and the Weekly Volcano weather guy has finally secured an appointment for his breast reduction. It’s all so exciting around here that I’ve wet my pants enough times to warrant me bringing an extra pair into the office. With my intelligence, it only takes three mistakes for me to figure this stuff out.

In all this exciting excitement getting me all excited, Tiffany and Craig from 99 Bottles in Federal Way clued me in to a once-in-a-lifetime national event headed here to the beautiful South Sound area: Beer Wars. No, it’s not scantily clad women in string bikinis wrestling in a vat of Pabst Blue Ribbon. As awesome as that might be to some of you, it’s nothing like that.

Beer Wars is a documentary that showcases the history of small breweries and their struggle to make it in a “Budweiser” type society. It will be broadcasted LIVE via simulcast from Los Angeles for one night only Thursday, April 16. The good news is that we don’t have to drive to Seattle to check this out; it will be shown this Thursday at Regal Auburn Stadium 17 and Century 16 in Federal Way, both begin at 8 p.m.

In even MORE good news, Tiffany and Craig also tell me that, “Ben ‘Bueller, Bueller’ Stein will host a live panel discussion immediately following the movie featuring key players in the craft beer industry, including Greg Koch (Stone), Sam Caligione (Dogfish Head), Charlie Papazian (Brewers Association President), and Todd Allstrom (BeerAdvocate.com).”

Better yet, the good news doesn’t stop there. If you bring your Beer Wars ticket stub into 99 Bottles (35002 Pacific Hwy. S., Federal Way), bat your eyelashes, and give them a “pretty please with a cherry on top,” Craig or Tiffany will give you 10 percent off your beer purchase. Beer movie, beer discussion, AND beer discount? Crap. There goes my fresh pair of pants.

Conquer your own meal

Rest-review-article-2-3_12 ANNOUNCER: Venturing to Federal Way can feel like taking a trip to another country â€" if that country is one long seemingly endless strip mall of ethnic restaurants and stores. Though it may feel like you need it, there’s no passport required to stop in and experience any of the many, many dining establishments that line Pacific Highway and the arterial streets. Sizzle. Hiss. Pop. Fry. Scrape. Chop. Flip. Such is the way of Genghis Khan Mongolian Grill.

JASON: Contrary to what must be a common and mistaken belief Genghis Khan, most people do not know what they want to order before they sit down at the table. Let me sit down and look at the menu before insisting I order. Go away for a while. Please.

JAKE: Shhhhhh, you are going to get our food spit in or worse!

ANNOUNCER: Read more of this riveting exchange, and how the food actually tastes, on the Weekly Volcano Web site.

Happy Hour Guide

CHUCK DULA: CHEERS >>>

Happy-Hour-tease-on-SpewThe term “Happy Hour” was coined in the 1920s by the Navy as slang for the scheduled period of entertainment on-ship. Not surprisingly, the Irish took this hour so seriously that it was made illegal in the Republic of Ireland in 2003 under the Intoxicating Liquor Act. More recently, the Canadian province of Alberta created restrictions to happy hours that took effect in August, 2008. Within these restrictions, all happy hour-like promotions must end at 8 p.m., and drink prices must conform to the Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission's minimum price regulations at all times.

Luckily, we live in the South Sound where the drinking never, ever, ever stops. Ever. For any reason. Unless you die.

Remembering who serves what, how cheap it is, and when takes a lot of work. With our quick-reference happy-hour organizer on our Web site, you can spend less time planning and more time getting sloshed.

Is it happy hour yet? Find out here.
