The Comeback Continues!

Hey…  We have business going down!

  1. A new show!
  2. Groucho fixed the core site and added all the shows back to 2005!
  3. And now….  You are invited to chill with us at our favorite gastro pub in Central Illinois…  The Harvest Cafe!  (Actually, Hometown Wine and Spirits)

Thats right, we have been busy boys here in Pekin.  To celebrate the resurgence ..  Meet us in Delavan on March 2nd for a Left Hand Brewing tapping that is sure to please everyone.  Mike Walters (Remember him from all the cool beer events we used to do in Peoria?) will be tapping a firkin of Left Hand Porter.  Be at Hometown Wine and Spirits at 3:30 for an afternoon of fun and overdue beer reverie.

We have been given the honor of selecting who gets to tap the firkin… Still working on how to decide that…  But begging will always work!
