    I have and it's good stuff too. I grew up about 40 miles from the brewery and used to play some semi-pro/men's league baseball (nothing as formalized as it is now) during the summers home from college in the area. If we timed it right, after playing a double header in 90 degree temps with 1000% humidity (no typo, I swear it was that high) we would hit this bar about 6 blocks from the brewery. The bar was an old, remodeled house and they kept the kegs in the basement. Again, if we timed it right, the brewery would make their keg deliveries late on a Saturday afternoon. If we helped them haul the kegs into the basement they let us drink free for the rest of the afternoon. :drinking1 The kegs would have a line coming out of them in the basement. It would come through the floor, coil through a huge stainless steel tub of ice and come out of the spicket at about 32.1 degrees. It was perfect! I'm getting misty just thinking about it again. :lmao:

    Zerfs: What's up with our Flyers? Like me in high school, they are completely unable to score. :confused3

    Daddy-o: The homemade rink looks great! Sounds like fun.

    MiJo: My wife is originally from your area. She grew up in East Stroudsburg.

    Leine's is a Wisconsin staple. I am liking their winter seasonal. Fireside Nut Brown. tastes like Christmas.

    But, yes, the beer is one of my favorite parts of Wisconsin.

    I graduated from East Stroudsburg University. Nice area but I was only there for a year and a half. I transfered to ESU from Penn State.

    MIJO - I agree we should do a dis-dads club meet. There seems to be a lot of us in the northeast area. Maybe we should all take a nice long weekend and go south to Georgia. I here the fishing is good and one of our Dads just relocated to there.

    Welcome back Fed!!!

    Between my wife and I we try and keep it clean. Usually by the 1st or 2nd week in Jan it freezes up pretty good, stays that way to the 3rd week of March.

    You can't see them but shorts too!:lmao:

    Funny you said that because once it freezes, trucks, snowmobiles and 4 wheelers drive by all time. So it feels like a highway at that point.

    Exact opposite in our house, lots of testostorone but somehow that "Say yes to the dress" show ends up on our tv:confused3

    Yes...yes it is.:rotfl2:

    Unfortunately, something used at the Joe wouldn't be allowed across the border. :rotfl2:Plus I would probably lose my "Leafs Fan Card" if I do that. (not that it's worth much these days....so sad):sad2:

    I had mentioned on Tim's (that's nice) TR about not liking or understanding the Dinoland area in AK and he dug up a thread that I thought was pretty interesting.

    Check it out. Thanks Tim:thumbsup2

    No problem- At least it gives you the story of DinoLand and why it is there. It is supposed to be cheezy.


    DIS DADS CLUB Poll---- WHO LIKES PRIMEVAL WHIRL??? I rode it for the first time in March and I hated it. I couldn't believe I wasted my time waiting to get on this ride. Maybe kids like it because they feel like they are on a rolloercoaster or something? :confused3:confused3 So what are your thoughts about it????

    I've actually never ridden it. But last time we were there, we skipped Dinoland in general. I understand the story behind it (thanks for posting, btw) but that doesn't mean I want to experience "cheesy" on my WDW vacation!

    So I guess you could take the fact that I intentionally skipped it as a thumbs-down vote.

    My wife is one of those bargain-hunters who finds a deal on something she wants on craigslist, buys it and then says, "Here, you can give this to me for Christmas." Makes my job easy! :lmao:

    I got her a bracelet and a cookbook that covers favorite recipes from all over WDW when we were there last month. She's a scrapbooker, so she got some scrapbooking stuff for me to give her, too.

    :thumbsup2 Hey! I thought only MY wife did that! :rotfl2: it does make it a lot easier!

    Oh yeah... I was NOT happy that day! :mad: I didn't know that story behind it... yet amazingly, knowing it now has not swayed me to enter that area again. :lmao:
