Overseas Beer Research

I just got back yesterday from a week in Belgium and the Netherlands. It was a mission to drink beer, visit breweries, drink beer, see some sites, drink beer, brew some beer, eat some local food, and maybe drink a little beer while we were at it. I happy to report the mission was successful.

It's 1.5 days at home (and work) then tomorrow, Maureen and I are going up to NYC to catch Bill's Broadway show. Will we get a chance to have a beer with him?

If tomorrow doesn't work out, Bill will be coming to Philadelphia so I have another chance.

If you haven't yet, please like my Facebook page. The link is on the right. Thanks!

Things Are Cooking

I've been quite busy with work, work, and work the last few months and haven't been able to keep current with this blog. But have no doubts, I remain committed to eventually having a beer with William Shatner.

And now things seem to be lining up.

And I'm not the only one who has noticed:

Julie Keener @toastgirl mentioned you:

@Scoats Did you see that Shatner is coming to Philly next month? Surely he must have time for a beer with you!

And it's out just Julie. In January, my wonderful wife heard about Bill's Broadway show. Being the amazing person she is, she bought tickets for us as a Valentine's present. (I'm a lucky and happy man whether I eventually get to have a beer with Bill or not).

So Bill and I will both be in Manhattan on Saturday, 25 Feb 2012. We will even be in the same building at the same time. Though one of us will be on stage and the other in the audience.

After my awesome wife bought the tickets for NYC, they announced there will be a Shanter's World show here in Philadelphia on Tuesday, 13 March too. So Bill and I will once again be in the same city at the same time.

Bill, it's kismet! Let's have a beer!.. either in NYC or Philly,.. or, even better, both! I know great places in both cities.
