Damn, I hate to miss a good party right here in my own neighborhood, but I have to work this afternoon. (Remember what Oscar Wilde said: "Work is the curse of the drinking class.") If I didn't, then I'd surely go down the street to Austin Homebrew Supply for their Oktoberfest party TODAY. Noon-5pm. Click on the link for details. Those of you who were smart enough to get your work done during the week should head on down there.
